Don't know who Victoria Woodhull is? She was once the most famous woman in America AND she is the subject of our next documentary!
Kelly Boyer Sagert will write our script and Director Peter Huston will
be handling the filming duties. Huston calls this "... a great story."
and Sagert says that she "... has been fascinated by Victoria Woodhull
for decades and is thrilled with the opportunity to delve into Woodhull's
rich and complex life."
Victoria was the first woman to push her way onto the political stage. She ran a newspaper and became a stockbroker. As Victoria put it, I endeavor to make the most of everything. And thats a goal we all should try to achieve she sure did!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to make a number of changes to our plans for the documentary about this phenomenal female. However, we intend to complete this project! We have decided that we will finish the film on our own. What this means is that we will NOT be actively seeking foundation grants, but will be using the funds from our murder mystery fundraiser from January of 2020 and counting on the continued support from YOU!
Of course, this means scaling back the scope of the project a bit, but it will allow us to move forward after having lost so much momentum during the COVID shut down. Filming will start in April, 2022.
If you would like to help make
a movie, now's your chance! Of course, if making a movie isn't your thing,
you can help us with all our other expenses, by telling us to use your
donation for general support and we will be extremely grateful for that
as well. If you have questions about this project or ideas on how to help
with fundraising, please
let us know! We'd be happy to talk to you.
As a not-for-profit corporation, your donation is tax-deductible. You can donate on-line with a credit card or you can send us a check. Your donation may not get Victoria elected president, but it WILL help us tell her story!
no such thing a "small donation"!
