Our project has taken many twists and turns over the past few years, and I can't tell you how much your patience and support means to me and "Throw Like Girl."
You may recall that I am currently pursuing my MFA in documentary film. I had expected that this program would help me craft and complete this film on a schedule. In fact, I found that it was very very difficult to work on an existing project in a program such as this. The good news is, I think all this turmoil finally yielded the answer I was seeking. I am going to be very candid with you all because you trusted and believed in me and this film, and it has taken much longer than I imagined it would.It is very fair if you are frustrated or irritated by that, or even lost your faith (hopefully only temporarily).The main problem I discovered I had was that I had a great topic, strong characters, great visuals, tons of footage, but I didn’t have a story.A documentary without a compelling story to tie everything together can be made, but it becomes a dry info documentary.And that sort of film will not help us change the hearts and minds of those who oppose girls playing baseball.Since that is the entire point of me making this film, I needed to find and was searching for the story.
The good news is, I found it, about 8 days ago! So we are back! It is still going to take some time, probably close to a year, to have a completed film, but we will have an amazing film that honors all the girls fighting their battles on and off the field, and those who support them by creating and finding opportunities for them to play.
Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns.The rewards are currently being printed/processed, so you should be receiving them within the next few weeks.
Thank you again Backers, you are the Best!
