Giddy In Love is a short film about a small town librarian who is looking for love in all the wrong pages.

Giddy Louise Brown desperately longs to be in love. Although she is unsure about what "being in love" truly means (or, what's worse, if anyone will ever be in love with her), she is certain that all her dreams will come true. All that Giddy knows about love is what she has read in romance novels. As such, she falls head-over-heels in love with celebrity romance novelist, Bradley Love. Giddy, however, has never met Bradley love... So we follow her through the few nerve wracking hours leading up to Bradley's book signing at the local library - every moment a quirky adventure in Giddy's quest to grasp the romantic love she's never had.

Giddy In Love is based on the one-woman play, Giddy In Love, written and performed by Jasmine Brooke White at the Savannah College of Art & Design. Her passion for film and belief that Giddy could translate from the stage to the screen lead her to pursue her next Giddy venture: the short film. In 2011, Jasmine met a very talented and extremely hard-working filmmaker and Harvard graduate, Noel Barlow. As Director, Co-Producer, and Co-Screenwriter, Noel worked with Jasmine to tell Giddy's story in a hilarious and artistically powerful way. The message shared through Giddy is simple: there is absolutely someone for everyone! God loves you so much, He even cares about who you end up with.
