We wanted to share some exciting news with you!

First of all, our documentary film, 5 Women: 4 Seasons is nearly ready to move from the pre-production stage into development and active filming, starting September 1, 2014. Four of the five girls are up on the mountain now and just waiting to be joined by Thea Smith.

Next, to help move our production forward, we, like many documentary filmmakers, have been spending the summer writing grants. We were informed this week from our friend and partner, Carole Dean over at From the Heart Productions, that 5 Women: 4 Seasons was chosen as a top 20 finalist of over 200 applications for their long-standing Roy W. Dean grant. We’re tremendously honored and moved to have made it into the top 10% of grant finalists, along with other top caliber filmmakers. Along the way, 5 Women: 4 Seasons was designated as a Hot Film in the Making for 2015! Carole and her team of reviewers recognize the story and value that our film will offer audiences and will be submitting a press release in the next week or two. We’ll be sure to keep you posted!

To find out more, be sure to come back and check out our site. We’ll update you once we have the press release. We’re also going to be releasing exclusive videos clips about each of the girls over the next couple of weeks! Stay tuned!
