What have you been doing with your life lately?
She might only be eight-years-old, but The Florida Project star Brooklyn Prince has announced that she will be directing her own short film.
On Thursday, Prince took to her Instagram account to make the announcement that she's going to be stepping behind the camera for the first time. This comes only a little after a year since The Florida Project was first released in theaters, which was a time when Prince was considered to be an unknown actress.
The title of this short film, according to Prince's post, is said to be Colours.

“My dream of directing started on The Florida Project,” she wrote. “I loved watching (The Florida Project director) Sean (Baker) work and was inspired by his patience, vision and creativity. Since then, my dream was to become one of the youngest directors of all time. Today, my journey as a director begins. Thank you to my friend and my mentor Sean Baker for believing in me, and to the amazing crew and cast. I hope to make you all very proud. I can’t wait for the world to see Colours.”
For what it’s work, Brooklyn, I and everyone over here at Stars and Celebs are already very, very proud.
Baker has also taken to his social media account to show support for Brooklyn Prince with a series of tweets — including one which reveals that Mandy and King Cobra cinematographer Benjamin Loeb is helping Prince in the filming process.

There’s no word, yet, as to who else is involved in Colours or what the story itself will actually be about, but we are anxiously awaiting to hear more.
Hats off to you, Brooklyn Prince. Hats off to you.
