  1. Blackfish Redux By Rhonda Hansome

    Wednesday, July 24, 2013

    Blackfish is a new documentary that explores the world of killer whales in captivity.  I don't want to say. "I did it first!", but I did.  






    Just take a gander at my blog from Thursday, July 12th, 2012: 

    Speaking of documentaries, I have one in post-production, 
    Drama Mamas The Film.  
    My feature length documentary explores the world of overlooked black women theater directors. It puts these visionary women of American theater in the spotlight.  

    Did I mention the film stars Phylicia Rashad and Ruby Dee?

    Drama Mamas carves in history the names of women like
    Ellen Stewart, Shauneille Perry, Vy Higginsen,
     Shirley Jo Finney, Jaye Austin Williams, Barbara Ann Teer
    and many others.
    In Drama Mamas the Film, their contributions are remembered for all time. 

    Well, remembered for all time if I can get out of post-production. I've shot all the footage and still need finishing funds for...

    sound correction, original music, animation, and final edits

    Someone writing the very earliest version of a blog said,
     "Ask and you shall receive."  So I'm asking...
    I have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the necessary post production elements and I need your help. I need you to donate right here.  

                          $5, $15, $40, $100, $500, $1000, $5000

    No donation is too small or too large!

    I need you to donate and follow @DramaMamas2, "like" Drama Mamas The Film and urge your friends to donate to this historic legacy film.  Nothing more.  Well, one more thing: #BlackWomenTheaterDirectors

    Dear Reader I sincerely thank all three of you.
