One of the most encouraging pieces of this entire filmmaking puzzle is the support I have received from friends and family. While some have been able to give financially or promote my blog/Kickstarter profile, others have offered up their talents and their time to help with promotional efforts. I have inherited a PR manager to conjure other methods to help draw in funds. We are looking into contacting gender equality groups, feminist organizations, and historical societies to see if they will be able to financially support Mother of Us All.
I was also recently approached by an artist friend of mine from college named Joni Van Bockel who offered to design original posters to promote my Kickstarter page, and eventually create the film’s poster. Her attention to historical detail and color reflects both the culture of the 60s and the film. It is incredible to see my vision translated so well in the minds of others; to see it come alive through art and text and to see my passion instilled in others. God has already used my project in unexpected ways, even before the film has hit production. Here is the incredible poster my graphic designer created, and for more information on Joni Van Bockel’s work check out her portfolio (http://portfolios.aiga.org/jonivanbockel)
