Introduction HEROINE FILMS–A YEAR IN THE MAKING.Here it is in nutshell form: Mel wrote a script which won the NYIIF, we had a reading, got investors, said investors pulled out over “lesbian subject matter”, then...That's when the idea of grassroots struck. There are people who believe in women making art.So we started a website,made some gear,hit the blogging communities.We got donations and letters from all over the world,including highschoolers giving what they could from after school jobs and heartbreaking letters from rents' of LGBTQ kids who had been put through hell.These people want to do/change something. We quickly made a trailer to help attract investors and show the people supporting us what this could be like. If this is what we can do on borrowed equipment with no crew and almost no money imagine...NOW we have been lucky enough to get a great deal of the funding from a combination of donations and a prodco that has put up a large sum. Not all of it yet, but enough that we are confident. We know that people believe in what we're doing. We're not alone.we're doing it for young girls and young LGBTQ people everywhere.to show that you CANNOT silence us.
