Valiant Doll was set up by Lisa Gornick in order to make microbudget feature films. After the production of two features, Do I Love You? and Tick Tock Lullaby, we are now embarking on our first cross platform production, The Book of Gabrielle.
Do I Love You? is a wry comedy about love and its labels. It's genesis was perhaps the question by Lisa Gornick to herself of - why am I a lesbian? The thoughts from that question evolve into dialogues and these became the bedrock of the film.
Tick Tock Lullaby is a poignant comedy about the dilemma of whether to have a baby or not. Trying to unearth the identity of becoming a mother and what that might mean. Again questions produce dialogues that form the feature film.
The Book of Gabrielle is a cross platform production encompassing a feature film, a book, live drawing performances, a series of web films and an exhibition.
