Intrigued by the sneak peak? Want to see the completed film? So do we?!?! We have 90% of the film in the can! We are fundraising through the end of January so we can shoot the final crucial scenes to tell this important story. Make your donation to support women filmmakers now!
This has been an ambitious project from the start! A period drama set in the 1930s is not easy to make on a short film budget, but…our talented and hardworking crew spent three days in October transforming a single duplex into multiple locations, reviving 1930s era hair, makeup and wardrobe, and finding creative ways to place the camera and lights in small spaces so our cast could bring the characters of Maxine to life!
Our amazing editor has already begun cutting the footage together, but…
We need to shoot those final crucial scenes which can all be shot in a single day. We need to raise $5000 to pay for permits, equipment, crew and cast. Any amount we raise over our goal will go toward other production and post-production costs.
Women in America, and around the world, are watching their rights as human beings eroding. If we want to change our Culture (the way we think), we have to change our culture (the way we do things). The power of film over how we see the world is greater than most people realize. And how we see the world informs how we change the world.
That’s exactly what A Lady Macbeth Initiative is poised to do. And Maxine is the perfect inaugural project to launch this new not-for-profit:
Your support today isn't just about one film. It's about flipping the paradigm and filling the gap for women in film on the micro level!
