We are on the last days of our campaign. We raised $30K in 3 days on our first campaign...
Our goal is to raise $20K in 2 days for this leg of our campaign. We do have other financing coming in but every penny on this campaign helps so much in finishing our film. We are grateful for anything you can donate and for spreading the word.
We've been shooting our feature film SPLiT and the performances and images are stunning! Some funding we were expecting did not come through and we now need your help to finish the film.
This film is focused on one woman's transformational journey and told in the midst of a collective of passionate women all giving voice to their own silenced stories.
Being in the process of making my third film in a trilogy of stories exploring the silencing of women's voices and dreams, I've come to realize not only how hard it is to get our voices heard, but how essential it is. I have had the priviledge of receiving emails and letters from women all over the country who have seen my films and thanked me for telling their stories. It gives me courage and strength to keep pushing forward.
Help me finish this film and lets show the world that we want real stories about real women. Stories that reflect our struggles and triumphs, our dreams and our humanity. Stories that are told truly from our perspective. The world needs our voices!
SPLiT at it's core is a film about figuring out how to really love someone. Both loving someone else and learning how to love all the parts of yourself, even the things you'd rather hide or lock away.
It focuses on the trasformational journey of a young actress who is cast in an experimental play based on an ancient myth, "The Descent of Inanna." The deeper she goes into the role, the more challenging it becomes for her to distinguish between the play, her relationships outside of the theater and the volatile realm of her inner life.
As a filmmaker, my process is really to nurture the actors and push them into new and dangerous territory. All of the performances are daring and brilliant.
Our cast is an ensemble of incredibly talented upcoming and seasoned actors. In addition to our lead roles we have a chorus of 40 women and 4 men and a large handful of supporting roles all filled with insanely brilliant and passionate performers.

Thank you so much for any support you can give to this project. We offer a lot of cool stuff in exchange for your donation, so please consider supporting us and spreading the word.
SPLiT is a film that has lived inside me for over 10 years. "The Descent of Innana," the play in which our actress Amy and the chorus of 40 amazing women performed in the Brooklyn warehouse is a 5000 year old story that has been silenced for all these years and who's time has come.
I have this image of the power of our 40 women turning into the power of 4,000 women, or 40,000 women or more! It woud be amazing if we could create a groundswell of women and our male allies insisting our voices and stories be told and heard.
Other Ways You Can Help
Please get the word out. We are trying to blow the roof off this campaign in three days so we can get back to shooting right away.
