You are a rock star for even reading this right now. If you are here you probably know me, but in the event you don’t you can see some of my work here http://jennpage.com.)
Most of you know that I was recently selected as one of 6 directors for the first ever Alliance of Women Directors Shoot ‘Em Up. The six directors have been hand selected and are all professional working directors. The premiere screening is set to happen at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank in late October and it is an extreme honor to get to premiere at their theatre and with the 5 insanely talented directors making the other films.
What you may not know is that as a filmmaker I’ve been lucky enough to direct several feature films, music videos, series for the web, live shows, and even a TV talk show. However, never have I had an opportunity like the one here before me now. The opportunity to screen a film at Walt Disney, to be a part of a series featuring other working women filmmakers and seen by high level industry guests. It’s a very exciting time and my team and I are working hard to create the best film we can!
Moreover, we are telling a very important story about a woman who escaped horrific incidents in her homeland of El Salvador and now suffers from mental illness brought on by PTSD. She moves in with a family as a live in housekeeper and slowly starts to unravel. We explore the issues of immigration, mental health, and family. And it’s all based on true events!
We have been given a $1,000 grant by the Alliance of Women Directors to get us off and running. We are more than grateful for the grant and we are putting it to good use. However, it only scratches the surface. We still need money for meals, crew, props, wardrobe, camera gear, post-production services and more!
When we say “every single dollar counts” it has never been more true! $1. $5. $10. $1,000! We’ll take it all and put it all to great use.
We have LESS THAN ONE WEEK until we have to film this!
Thank you for visiting the page and reading all of this and considering helping us!
Love & light,
Jenn Page, Producer/Director
