Hey powerful ladies!
My name is Sarah Moshman and I’m a reality tv producer and documentary filmmaker passionate about female empowerment! I have one question for you – how many film crews have you seen that are made up of all women?
That’s the basis of an exciting new docu-series project I created with my super cool business partner and bestie Dana Michelle Cook called “The Empowerment Project.” Our plan is to travel across the US this fall with an all lady crew and interview 10 inspirational women in a variety of career fields to create positive role models and motivate women and girls of all ages to after their ambitions. We are using an amazing site called Kickstarter to make our dream come true. Kickstarter is a site where people fund and follow creative projects, and people set fundraising goals to make their dream a reality. We are trying to raise $25,000 in 60 days, but we only have less than 2 weeks left! I know it sounds like a lot of money, but traveling across the US for a month with a crew takes a lot of resources and we want to make this series as amazing as we know it can be!
We want to ask questions of our subjects like: How did you get to where you are in your career? What struggles did you face along the way? What advice can you share with other women that want to be in the same spot? And what is your take on feminism today? We are going to make a 10 part docu-series to be shown on the web that spotlights these incredible women. Our first interview subject is Sundance Best Director Winner Jill Soloway and in our Kickstarter video she talks about how she thinks it’s easy for women to direct movies and how to follow your inner impulse. Her close friend and long time collaborator is Jane Lynch, and Jane is also featured in our first webisode of “The Empowerment Project” which is available to people who donate to our cause.
This project is very close to my heart and is the culmination of a lot of hard work. I want to inspire and empower women to go after their dreams whatever they may be. I often ask myself this question and I think other women should do the same: What would you do if you weren’t afraid? If I wasn’t afraid I would travel the country for a month with strong women and make a documentary! What would you do?
