Order your DVD and Soundtrack Album here!
In the tradition of “Go” and “Superbad,” “GIRLTRASH: All Night Long” is the story of five girls and one epic night. Daisy and Tyler are two hapless rockers trying to make it to a Battle of the Bands on time. They are waylaid by Daisy’s sister, Colby, who has her sights set on hooking up with the girl of her dreams, Misty (that is, if she can manage to have a conversation with her first). As the night spirals out of control, the girls will find love, lust, girl-fights, rock and roll, and a whole lot of stoned sorority girls. Oh, did we mention it’s a ROCK MUSICAL

POWER UP Production Value Second to None

Original Soundtrack GIRLTRASH: All Night Long

Since GIRLTRASH: All Night Long is a musical, it goes without saying that the music was incredibly important to the film. Not only are the characters singing about what they’re going through, two of the main characters (Tyler and Daisy) have to compete in a battle of the bands.  To make sure this musical was pitch perfect, writer Angela Robinson teamed with Killola’s Lisa Rieffel and Johnny Dun to put together a kick-ass soundtrack and score for the film.

The result is magical.  From Rose Rollins rapping “By 2 A.M...

GIRLTRASH: All Night Long – Writing the Script

By Angela Robinson

LOS ANGELES:  Writing the script for GIRLTRASH: All Night Long … was kind of a blur. It happened really fast. And was really fun. But now that I’m writing about it I realize it is the story of how a webisode became an ensemble comedy and then a rock musical. In the span of about six weeks.

Okay… so… the script for GIRLTRASH: ALL NIGHT LONG started as part of the web series. In it’s original inception, the web series of Girltrash was going to be a series of 2-3 minute webisodes telling an open-ended story of a group of women involved in an unfolding crime story. Once the narrative was established, we were going to add buttons where viewers could see spin-off videos that gave context to the current action...

GIRLTRASH Cast Superb Talent

A romantic lesbian comedy musical like GIRLTRASH: All Night Long needed the perfect cast to captivate the audience and reveal the joy at the heart of Angela Robinson’s wonderful script. The “girls” needed to be sexy and, at the same time, able to get crazy out of control and sing songs like “Don’t Shit on my Dream.”  Director Alex Kondracke was able to gather the perfect ensemble for an outrageously funny and sweet story about going for your dream.

Lisa Rieffel (The Cosby Show; Empty Nest; The King of Queens)
Michelle Lombardo (Entourage; Californication; Quarterlife)
Gabrielle Christian (South of Nowhere)
Mandy Musgrave (South of Nowhere)
Rose Rollins (the L word, Chase)
Kate French (the L word, One Tree Hill)
Clementine Ford (the L word)
Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own)
