A documentary about women directors.

This documentary  invites viewers into a bracing and intimate conversation with women who are on the front lines of the film and television directing field.  Major award winners, game-changers, and frustrated auteurs share what it’s like to be on the front lines. Considering all aspects of the directing experience for women, we will learn how and why each remarkable woman successfully drives through creative, cultural, and professional obstacles in a deeply challenging profession.

The material is presented as a feature doc, a limited series, and as single interviews that will ultimately be made available online. We are also working on a book!

The goal is to offer “peer to peer mentorship” for anyone (of any gender) looking for guidance and real world experience as they pursue their dreams of becoming a visual storyteller.

We are a thrilled recipient of an Awesome Without Borders Grant!

Episode One: The Vanguard of Change premiered at the 2017 Newport Beach International Film Festival on April 25th, 2017 where it won Best Documentary: Honorable Mention in the short film category!

Our new feature length version premiered at the SOHO Film Festival 2017, June 19th and won the coveted AUDIENCE AWARD!

From the article:

“I guess the reason I focus on them, which I can imagine is your next question” – it was – “is because I want to inspire people. And 25 years ago, when I started making films, my whole goal from the get-go was to inspire people to create and to follow their instincts and not allow the super-ego of society to tamp it down.” Even though her subjects are flawed, and she shows it, she believes that “their stories can be really inspirational to us to step out of line and to take things on that we wouldn’t otherwise take on, even if we do feel like we have limitations and faults. So that’s why I do it.”

Why we need more women making commercials. We ARE affected by the images we see.

So excited to share we won the Audience Award for Full Length Feature at the SOHO International Film Festival 2017!

This award looks like a big teardrop, but it also looks like the sea! And deep inside there's a formless spirit full of magic... oooo...A perfect metaphor for this female filmmaker!

And yes, we did celebrate at a Sushi place after!! Yum!!

Powerful and important. Deborah Kampmeier is at the forefront of the spiritual/sexual conversation about women, and she explores it fearlessly in her new film, "Split."
