Wow -- one week to go and we're at 65% of our goal. Thank you so much for your support of Homefront Heroines. Please share the project with your friends so that we can make our goal (or even exceed it!).
This weekend the project went the the 1940s WWII Era Ball at the Boulder airport. What a blast. Great music, fabulous planes and terrific costumes. We spent the time talking about the project - me (Kathleen) in a WAVE uniform and David (producer) dressed in sailor whites. Quite the pair.
We've also edited through the first 5 minutes of the film. Every little bit helps -- and we'll post an update for you to see soon.
Thanks again for your support!
