Lemonade Stand Gets Shut Down – A Short Film
Please watch this great short film that was written and directed by Bill Doherty Jr.
A little girl and her lemonade stand gets shut down by the board of health, see her story.
7 year old entrepreneur Chrystal ventures off into the business world with her very first self-owned and operated lemonade stand. When an over zealous board of health official, I.R.S. agent, and their military backup show up ready to shut down any and all lemonade stands that don’t play by the rules.
Here is what Bill has to say about the movie:
“Lemonade Stand began as a passing joke between me and my father. We were driving down the road and saw multiple Lemonade Stands competing for business and my father said “I wonder if they have a permit for that”. I thought to myself “That is hilarious! What a great concept for a short film!” So, I created these characters and wrote the story based on that. The character dynamic was perfect: The innocent little girl against the overzealous board of health official. Not realizing these characters actually existed until my cinematographer brought to my attention that YES these situations were actually happening across the united states. At the time it was Portland Oregon. The Georgia event hadn’t happened yet. I heard this and a part of me was enraged! How in god’s name could anyone really shut down one of the most iconic introductions to business and fun in this country. That’s ridiculous!! So, I combed over the script I had. Amplified the absurdity of the situation and “Lemonade Stand” was born.”~Bill Doherty Jr.~
