Troian Bellisario may be the star of one of TV’s most popular shows, but that’s only one part of her media-making life. Outside of her role as Spencer on Pretty Little Liars, she is part of the The Casitas Group, self-described as “an aggressive and ever-growing group of collaborators who work together and independently in film, TV, theater, music videos, and commercials.” You may know them from short film Exiles, a re-imagined Romeo and Juliet written, produced, and starred in by Troian. Now, Troian and co. are hoping to make another film — and they want your help.

The film-to-be is called Surf Noir and it’s described on the project’s Kickstarter page as “mix[ing] the mystery intrigue and evocative sensibilities of a classic Noir with supernatural thrills and teen steam.” If you’re more of a visual person, there’s a mood reel on the page for your perusing pleasure, as well as an interactive script featuring the first 12 pages of the story.

As of the time of this posting, the project has 27 backers and roughly $1,800, with the hopes of meeting its $30,000 in the remaining 20 days. So, if you are looking to explore a “creepy-classic world of bad boys and the beautiful neon drenched sunsets,” then head on over and donate! Slightly more disconcerting is this message from director Tommy Bertelsen under the “Risks and challenges” section of the page:

“This whole thing is a risk and challenge… We’re mixing genres, performing motorcycle stunts, and tying the star of America’s most talked about TV show to the side of a car with surfboard leashes —then sending her barreling towards a cliff. I just hope nobody gets hurt.” Um, should we be worried?

Wh?n w?’re n?t busy analyzing th? ridiculous costumes th?? wear ?n th??r ?h?w, ?t seems l?k? everything w? ??? ?b??t th? Pretty L?ttl? Liars cast ?? sparkled w?th praise f?r th??r insightful, body positive attitudes. Each ?f th? four stars h?? spoken up, ?t one point ?r another, ?b??t th? importance ?f taking images ?n th? media w?th a grain ?f salt. Troian Bellisario, wh? plays th? super-sleuthing Spencer Hastings, ?? perhaps th? m??t willing t? speak out ?b??t ?m??rt?nt issues, ?nd h?r latest interview w?th Larry King ?? exceptionally h?n??t ?nd powerful.

Wh?n ??k?d ?b??t h?r experience w?th anorexia ?? a college student, Troian dropped a handful ?f well-crafted truth bombs:

I w?? speaking w?th somebody wh? w?? ?n alcoholic ?nd th?? ???d, “Alcohol isn’t th? problem. It’s th? solution t? th? problem.” And anorexia isn’t th? problem. It’s th? solution t? th? problem. S? wh?n somebody ????, “Okay, I’m going t? sit down w?th ??? ?nd talk ?b??t wh?t ???’re feeling, wh?t’s causing ??? t? n?t want t? eat,” ??? ?t?rt t? b?g?n t? address th? problem ?nd th?n ??? ??n g?t back ?nt? healthy eating habits.

Wow. Th?t’s such ?n obvious way t? look ?t mental illness, b?t I feel l?k? ??r culture tries t? band-aid th? symptoms without fully addressing th? cause. I’m always impressed w?th th? things Troian ???? ?n interviews, b?t th?t m?ght b? m? n?w favorite quote. Later, wh?n ??k?d ?f ?h? considers herself a role model, ?h? endeared m? even more:

I hope. I d?f?n?t?l? hope. I mean, I’ve b??n ??t ?n a position ?f power ?nd I w??ld hope t? give positive influence r?th?r th?n negative influence.

Sh? d?f?n?t?l? d??? th?t. Wh?t a badass.

If ???’re interested ?n seeing th? entire interview, ?t premiers today ?n Ora.tv’s Larry King Now.
