42 dedicated women filmmakers and photographers.
One powerful message: We Create.
If you’ve been keeping track of LoveSpun, you know that recently I had the wonderful opportunity to attend POSH 2010, an educational workshop for female filmmakers & photographers from around the globe. When all of us came together it didn’t take long to realize that we are just scratching the surface on something huge. I know in my local market of Sacramento, I am one of a few, if only, established female wedding filmmaker that I can find and even in San Francisco, a huge city, in the Bay Area Professional Videographers Association I belong to, there are but a few female voices among the group. This is not a “I am woman, hear me roar” sort of statement, just a reality that lady videographers have always expected. There are so many amazingly talented men in this industry that I look up to, and motivated me to become the artist that I am today.
With that said, imagine now realizing that we have an instant support system overnight? Other girls trying to run businesses, raise kids, be great wives, they just “get it!” It was a powerful week of training and networking and the theme that rose to the top was that we have so much to offer to the wedding industry because of our feminine voice. A wedding is after all, a little girl’s dream and WE are that little girl!
Inspired by our shared experiences in wedding industry, the attendees spontaneously decided to use our creative gifts to craft a short film illustrating the positive power and passion of women in the film industry.
Shot on location at POSH 2010, “We Create” was directed by Maura Coleman-Murray and Kara Jensen, filmed by Maribeth Ratajczyk and Luiza Perkowska, and edited by Meg Simone. All 42 POSH 2010 attendees collaborated on the piece.
Thanks for stopping by!
