What makes the film we are creating about the girls of The Anderson Monarchs powerful are four distinct qualities. Sisterhood, Community, Leadership, and Competition. I have selected 6 images to share with you that express part of what I have witnessed just being around the girls. I've been working on the film now since Nov. of 2008, and each part of the process has been very exciting. The girls are making history, but best of all, they are having fun being girls. They feel great about their self image, about how in shape they get when playing soccer, and they love being with their friends. Along with that is the spirit of competition that they also enjoy. The U16 team this year only lost one game all Fall and tied for first place. The Under 12's just won their Indoor Championship, and the Under 9's just won their Indoor Championship. Every age group is successful. Sometimes pictures can describe what it is like to just be around the girls. Here are a few I thought you might enjoy. Feel free to share with friends. Eugene
history on me making The Anderson Monarchs movie - this photo is my old
team that I coached for my daughter when we played with the Monarchs
down at the Marian Anderson Rec Center in Feb 2008. I had a vision to
bring our communities together. My hope is the film will do the same,
but on a world scale. We need strong daughters as they grow, and in turn
they need our support. 24 days left to support the film. Don't wait! Share your enthusiasm for the film far and wide. We
want to share this with the world from the City of Sisterly Love!
Hi Everyone, First of all I want to say thanks for your support. My name is Dollena Campbell and I am Producer of Social Networking for The Anderson Monarchs Documentary Feature Film. I am excited to be a part of a documentary with such a wonderful message! I wanted to say hello to everyone and let you know that I am 100 percent committed, as everyone else on the team, to helping The Anderson Monarchs Documentary to reach the goal of raising $25,000 or more on kickstarter. I believe with your help that we can succeed far beyond our imagination. It is because of you that we will be able to finish the rough cut, and possibly more. Please feel free to embed our new trailer and pass out to your friends on facebook, twitter, or via email. Thanks so much again for your support, Dollena Campbell
