ABOUT THE FILM
Merit Badges is a story for anyone who’s ever felt small in a hostile, scary world and finding it within yourself to create your own opportunities.
The story was born out of Writer/Director N.C. Jones’ desire to do a short, engaging and funny story after working on several challenging and dramatic feature film scripts. Jones set out to apply her storytelling craft and experience as a female filmmaker to make a film for her 8 year-old self, to encourage her boldness and to temper her patience. It is a message that Jones hopes to share with every misfit girl out there.
Produced by Negative Split Films and the Limerance Bureau and a team of dedicated volunteers and showcasing a fantastic cast and exceptional crew that the Raleigh-Durham filmmaking community should be well-known for, Merit Badges was filmed in Raleigh, NC in the Spring of 2018.
