A quick-witted princess more interested in math than marriage, uses her unusual super power and her superior brain, to make great discoveries in the field of mathematics, all while staying a hair length ahead of her pursuing prince. This film began its life as a short play by Katie May, and was inspired by a lecture at the Math Science Research Institute in Berkeley. Katie May and Lead actor Liz Anderson were offered a small grant from PlayGround, the Bay Area’s leading arts incubator for playwrights, to adapt the play to film, and Anderson reached out to her friend and voiceover agent Seth Podowitz to direct.
Seth Podowitz has worked in the entertainment industry for the last fifteen years as a director, producer and film & TV composer (among other various jobs) working with clients including Starz, Film Roman, Cartoon Network, EA, and many others. He is currently living in Shanghai, China working on Shanghai Disneyland.
