Synopsis for Changing Charlie
Charlie Biggs is just your average guy. He appreciates the simple things in life like bacon, lasagna, and movies from the 80s. One day his next-door neighbor Vanessa, a psychology student, decides that Charlie could use a little more zest in his life. She convinces him to seek treatment with the idea that he is suffering from a type of condition called anhedonia. Charlie follows her direction but suddenly finds himself experiencing a wide array of psychiatric phenomena as the result of his treatment. Join Charlie in the journey that ensues as he discovers both the good and bad that accompany current mental health remedies.
Comment from the filmmakers:
“We are making this film because we feel strongly about the subject matter. Many of today’s treatments for mental health issues have ramifications that often outweigh the benefits. The Charlie Biggs story is a fictional tale about a man who seeks treatment in order to improve his day-to-day functioning. This film will seek to explore the positive and negative phenomena associated with psychiatric treatments. Your donations will go into development, preproduction, production, and postproduction of this important project.”
