About

Funding needed to begin research, shooting and editing movie.

Documentary Synopsis:

A portrait of the women who helped shape the Boston Rock Music Scene, from performers to promoters, and how they changed music history forever.

Director’s Statement:

When people talk about Rock Music in the City of Boston, most people think of male bands and performers – from Aerosmith to Boston. Many historical documents have been created about these bands. Very few people realize that Boston had many pioneering women in the Rock Music business.

Bands like the Bristols, Lizzie Borden and the Axes, Robin Lane and the Charbusters, Aimee Man and others began to break into the “Good Old Boys Club” that was the Boston Rock scene. And many women were instrumental in developing the support systems for the music business in Boston: Radio DJs like Maxanne and others, booking agents, promoters and writers like Miss Lyn and others, created the “buzz” that made the “Boston Scene” possible.

My mission is to portray the variety of women's roles in the local music scene, that their roles were critical and quite colorful in developing and supporting the cultural phenomenon we call “Boston Rock.”

By working closely with co-Producers who are deeply rooted in the Boston Rock Scene, I hope to create a visually compelling experience for viewers, combined with a variety of local music performance videos and interviews.

Risks and challenges

Funding goal here on KickStarter is only to start research, shooting and editing.
We will need other funds for travel, licensing, etc., beyond this goal.
If the other funds are not obtained, then the project may be shut down.
I hope you understand: That's the movie business.
