For my grad film, I am directing and producing a tooth-themed musical comedy called Hot Stuff.

Marina, a energetic and fun-loving little girl slips and falls on the playground, knocking out her front four teeth. She’s quickly carted off to the hospital, where her mother and sister wait to reveal her hideous fate. Her mom gives her a hand mirror and is shocked to realize that Marina LOVES her new look! Marina promptly rips off her hospital gown, a disco ball drops from the ceiling, and a disco mashup medley fills her ears. When hordes of medical professionals swarm her attempting to fix her teeth, she evades them through a series of costume changes and dance numbers.

Marina Santos

Marina is a kind and optimistic puppet who tries to approach every situation with a great attitude. She is friendly and outgoing, and enjoys spending time with her friends and family, disco music, and the latest fashion.
