Ghostgirl.Com, Where Popularity Is A Matter Of Life And Death
Independent filmmaker Tonya Hurley has launched Ghostgirl.com, a new Website that introduces Charlotte Usher, an unpopular girl who wakes up dead one day and finds herself just as unappreciated in the world of the Great Beyond. The site, aimed at teens and tweens, features Flash animation, weekly comic strips, games, tips and quizzes. GHOSTGIRL is based on a story and screenplay by Hurley and was produced by JOHNNY BRAVO creator Van Partible. Hurley has written and directed numerous short projects, both animation and documentary. Her animated short, BAPTISM OF SOLITUDE: A TRIBUTE TO PAUL BOWLES, recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and is being broadcast on the Independent Film Channel (IFC) beginning in August 2002. Hurley is also co-producer and writer for the animated series MARY KATE AND ASHLEY IN ACTION, produced by DIC Entertainment in association with Dualstar Animation, which is scheduled to air on Toon Disney in Fall 2002.
