A LETTER FROM AMBERLEE

In my mid-twenties, I was certain I needed to find my place in the world. My hope was to have it all figured out by thirty...or at the very least be at a place that was fulfilling, lucrative and… alongside Oprah if possible. Naïve? Little bit. High expectations? Um, definitely. I mean, I knew Ms. Winfrey was a long shot, but dreaming is part of the artist's job description, right? Nevertheless, my idea of success and the pressure I put on myself to achieve it made my life...uh...fun. And by "fun" I do mean hungover with constant disappointment. (Got to love your 20's.) The good news is that this over-achieving mindset was the birth place and foundation of my main character, Jules Jenson. She has her life all figured out, she just needs everyone else to get on board. As she struggles through the challenges of Hollywood, she comes to realize that she may not know everything, and that may be a good thing.

BEHIND THE SCENES OF BIG HAIR

MEET JULES JENSON

THANK YOU for taking the time to read about this project!  With your help, we can make this movie happen and tell a tale about a quirky, young woman who discovers her inner mojo!       

Sincerely, 

Amberlee Colson

Risks and challenges

“There has to be this pioneer, the individual who has the courage, the ambition to overcome the obstacles that always develop when one tries to do something worthwhile, especially when it is new and different.”
Alfred P. Sloan

Yes, there will be challenges, but we will overcome them! I love Independent Filmmaking because it is a labor of love. Everyone is there not for the paycheck but because they’re passionate about the story. But this means patience and flexibility may be needed at times. Here are some examples of the obstacles that could arise:

SHOOTING SCHEDULE: The actors that we have in mind are currently filming other movies or working on TV so it will be important to adhere to their schedule needs.

COMPLETION: Due to unknown factors ahead, the timeline for completion is still to be determined. But we will be able to complete this film because of you, AMAZING backers!

REACHING OUR AUDIENCE: With any low-budget film, PR and Marketing can be challenging. But here’s where Kickstarter is genius. The community is here. It starts now. And I’d love your help in spreading the word once our film is done.

Bottom line, this is happening because of you, and I will not forget that. All obstacles have a workable solution. And I believe, like the great characters in the stories we love, the obstacles we meet and overcome define us.
Bring it on :)

xo,
Amberlee
