Follow Your Voice
Inspired by the award-winning short film, Snowflake, Follow Your Voice is written through the eyes of a young, introvert girl who feels like she doesn’t fit the standards for acceptability set by society — but she’s okay.
School bullies try to silence her inner sound by mocking what she wears and calling her name. Even the adults around her who don’t understand the beat that moves her — but she’s okay. And why is she okay? Because she found her inner strength to be true to herself — and to follow her voice. There is no stopping her destiny to make music. While there are forces that try and oppress the creative art of music, this book provides the youth with an anthem to help build them up, and let them follow the beat of their own heart.

Goldilocks Productions brings you the story of a 9-year old girl, Jesse, who utilizes hip hop music as a catalyst to both find her voice and grow as an individual. Ava Fratus stars as Jesse, and performs original music written specifically for SNOWFLAKE.
A 10-year old singer, dancer, actor and rapper, Ava started in the business when she was just 6 years old and has been performing up and down the East coast ever since. She's a true hustler.
The idea for SNOWFLAKE was conceived almost ten years ago from a simple question: where are the hip hop stories centered around women? That same question remains as relevant as ever today.
With SNOWFLAKE, the goal is to tell the story of an outsider looking to fit in, who then finds her voice and grows as a young woman using music.
