Here’s the exciting news: the rough edit of the film is done (!!!) and our fabulous composer Andy Forsberg should have our music composed by mid-February.
So what’s up in the New Year for the Homefront Heroines crew?
We have some resolutions in place.
- Blog a WAVES picture a day for 2012
- Submit the film for ITVS and American Documentary Film Fund financing in January. Then, on to American Experience, who we’re hoping will agree that the story of the WAVES is worth a place on PBS. The funding will help us with our other resolutions.
- License film footage and archival music
- Find a firm to do color correction
- And, find a narrator. We love the idea of :
- Zooey Deschanel – because of her work with Hello Giggles advocating strong storytelling by women
- Reese Witherspoon – her family was in the Navy and she’s known for playing smart, savvy women and being a role model for military children
- Geena Davis – she’s a huge advocate for strong female role models, was a part of the film Women, War and Peace and was a speaker last year at the Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium, where we’ll be talking about the film in March
- Mila Kunis – The Black Swan and Friends with Benefits star made news this year for going to the Marine Corps Ball after being asked out on Twitter. How about supporting the accomplishments of military women?
What do you think?
Here’s to a fabulous 2012 and the debut of Homefront Heroines both for the WAVES at the WAVES National Annual Conference and (ideally) at a film festival or on a television screen near you!
