About the CauseSLEEPOVER will feature select styles and talent from LA, NYC and SF pace-makers. Introducing dance as a character of this film in itself, the film’s narrative will unfold using movement as well as scripted text, with Director / Choreographer Lily Baldwin and Producer Nicole Disson at the helm. Fashion will play an integral part in setting the tone, with stylist Katie Casey and production designer Sonja Kroop, as well film’s original score, by award-winning composer Mark degli Antoni in collaboration with Australian Pop duo Pnau (who are on Sony's label). Austin Rhodes (of Heist Productions) is the film's Director of Photography.
