Editing and Technology and Vimeo, Oh My!

Thanks for sticking with us over the last few months!

We've been editing the episodes using a process that involves a number of step: first, lots of discussion about what material we have, what we think the thesis or argument of the chapter is, and then a potential narrative line. Second, Erin cuts together a rough draft over a week or so. Third,  Heather offers notes, and then Erin recuts the material.

This involves a lot of scheduling, both Erin and Heather are busy with other jobs, but also much technological support. Erin is in Utah and Heather is in Arizona.

Thank goodness for Google!

And once the chapter is posted, Heather still has many more notes for Erin.

We've had requests lately for the entire film on DVD. As you can imagine, this will involve more discussions and edits, as material, info, and images that are used in stand alone segments needs to be re-evaluated for a more cogent narrative.

Thanks for your support, as always, and wish us luck as we apply to film festivals.

Looking for Funding

Last week Erin interviewed with the Burton Foundation in Salt Lake City about funding to market the film once we've finished postproduction. These funds would help us create press packets and festival applications, as well as travel to festivals to promote the film.

We've got a few other options before us, including Arizona Arts grants and the like. If you know of a funding opportunity or a private donor that is interested in the film, please let us know. We've gotten very good at writing grants!

"Hair styles men find appealing" from an early version of Fascinating Womanhood
I love when self-help books get specific about what a reader can do to change her life for the better. These are the tips that every reader must understand to know you've found the sage wisdom. Fascinating Womanhood has several gems, particularly, the hair and fashion guidelines. These tips for women to change their appearance suggest the change will bring greater success in marriage and relationships.

 Which hairstyle would you pick?

Have you noticed a difference when you change your hairstyle?

Brian Andelin, creative force

Brian Andelin, Executive Director of the Renaissance Society and Fascinating Womanhood.
An influential force behind the Fascinating Womanhood Documentary is Brian Andelin, the current Executive Director of the Renaissance Society. He manages the website and day-to-day operations of Fascinating Womanhood. He has made arrangements for interviews and introduced us to key people in the unfolding development of the film.  We interviewed Brian several weeks ago at the beautiful Salt Lake City Library downtown. Its always a pleasure visiting with Brian and we have appreciated his encouragement and creativity. Last time we talked he said, "if Beethoven and Handel had access to all the technology we have today they would be amazed because they were writing music with a bird feather!"
