GOOD FEELING ABOUT
TENILLE Kennedy, from Rockingham, is excited about the release of the first feature film she has produced, Bad Girl.
“I’ve been in the industry for about 10 years and started my company a few years ago,” she said.
The feature film was produced in just 21 days.
Tenille said it was a challenge working to a tight schedule and a limited budget.
However, she said that was also the exciting part working on indie films.
“I’m proud to have made it in WA with a crew I grew up with,” she said.
“We are building up the industry in WA.
“It has been a rollercoaster ride.”
Bad Girl will be released in cinemas on April 27. Amy (Sara West) returns home following a stint in a juvenile corrections centre to a house she doesn’t know and to adopted parents she doesn’t care for in a country town where there’s nothing to do. She has done something terrible and she is capable of much worse. Despite the love and support her parents provide, Amy plans on escaping. To make matters worse local girl Chloe (Samara Weaving) is everything she is not; in looks, manners and behaviour. Their attraction to each other is immediate and it will have dire consequences for all.
