So it begins!
Sometime last winter, we realized that together we had all the pieces to make this film: a story, a spectacular landscape, and an incredible network of support and know-how. Every day presented a new meeting or information that propelled us forward – everything felt like a sign, as though the universe was trying to tell us something (the only day we could all convene for our first scheduled camera test just happened to be the night of the SUPERMOON)!
So now we are listening to the signs, and choosing to interpret them this way: shooting our first feature film in the exquisite town of Camden, Maine in the summer of 2011. We invite you to follow us as we share the process with you. This blog will track the adventure of our adventure: A group of women—theatre artists with varying interest and experience in film— joining together to make work out of mutual admiration and respect for our diverse talents.
We are at the beginning, here, and we hope in documenting this journey we can be both a resource to those who are learning to make films, and a support (and maybe inspiration) for those who desire to strike out on their own in the world, beating their own path rather than waiting for the knock on the door.
