So rather than letting all this keep breaking me down, this last year when I made my RAINN video and campaign I also began writing. I began breaking down and processing my past into a story that not only helped save me but I also hoped would save others if I got to share it. That full story is still far out of my reach, so I sat down with my husband R.H. Norman and wrote a short based off of it. We hope to co-direct this together as we have co-written this incredibly special project together.

“Inspired by the imagination that she escaped to during her own abusive childhood, Pitt and her filmmaker husband, Norman, share a heartbreaking, yet poetic tale of a young girl, whose stuffed creature, “Grummy,” brings a new world to life during her most vulnerable moments. According to Pitt, “This story is very personal, because I was this little girl. I used my imagination to escape, I used books, movies and toys to get away. If I didn't have my imagination, if didn't have these things, I don't think I would be here today.
This is a story of how monsters saved my life.”

With the help of Kevin Yagher Productions Inc. ( Nightmare on Elm Street, Child’s Play, Sleepy Hollow) our producer Gary Deocampo along with my amazing crew of friends and industry leaders we hope to make this a reality. Breaking all the costs down to make a full animatronic Grummy and a real environment for them to all live in is out of our scope financially.
