And I want you to be in it!
You amazing ladies continue to inspire me every day, so a childhood friend of mine, Melissa Gomez (who also happens to be an award-winning documentary filmmaker goddess) – and I have decided that some of those stories need to be told!
We thought what better way to illuminate the many misconceptions that exist about women’s hormonal health than to share the stories of some amazing women who have gone against seemingly insurmountable odds to bring their health back into balance.
So yeah, you’ve probably guessed it by now… we’re looking for a few special ladies who would be willing to share their personal journeys of struggle and survival with us on camera. We’re putting this collection of amazing women’s stories under a Lady Parts pilot project that we are aiming to launch this Fall. We’re hoping this will be the first in a series of inspiring stories that will help to connect women all over the world. I know – ambitious, but it feels so right, so why not??
- Are you based in the tri-state area of New York / New Jersey / Connecticut? Or perhaps you know someone in this area who would be a good candidate?
- Do you feel a burning need to share your story about the crazy things you’ve endured in trying to get to a healthier, happier, more fulfilled “you”
- Do you feel excited about the idea of a superwoman documentary team capturing your story on film? If so, we want to hear from you!
Please go ahead and fill out this application form and we will contact you if we love your story.
I promise, if you decide to go on this journey with us, you’ll be in safe hands! You know all about my background, but to allay any fears (trust me – you need have none!) here’s an introduction to the filmmaker who I’ll be collaborating with on this new woman-powered project:
Melissa Gomez is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who has most recently worked with Loki Films to produce two episodes of PBS’s prestigious MAKERS series, profiling trailblazing American women and airing on the network this Fall. She also Co-Produced Nine for IX: Branded, an episode of ESPN’s new Emmy-nominated series of documentaries about women in sports. Melissa’s documentary feature debut, Silent Music (link http://silentmusicthefilm.com/), tells her moving personal story of what it was like growing up with and learning to communicate with profoundly deaf parents. Silent Music won the award for Best Documentary at the 2012 Caribbean Tales Film Festival, as well as the Audience Choice Award at the 2012 Toronto Deaf International Film & Arts Festival. Melissa’s films have been shown across North America, Europe, and the Caribbean and, needless to say, I can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining forces with her on this!
