Rolling into the dog days of summer, I’m doing my best to get outside, but it can be rough when barely walking into the Tennessee sun leaves me immediately drenched in sweat. What do you do to beat the heat? How about joining the heat by catching some lady-athletes in their creative moments? Fast Company highlighted this series of short videos from Adidas featuring women who are “here to create.” If you didn’t catch them when they first came out in 2016, these are powerful glimpses of athletes practicing, doing, inspiring. This vibes with me even as I’m inside prepping my next film.
Take a look below at the others who are here to create. All the campaigns are led by women practicing their hardest in order to bring their game and deliver stories they want to share with you. Click around, contribute, and create alongside them however you can!
P.S. See those new share buttons at the bottom of the post? Take them for a spin!
Reminder: All of the projects listed below have female directors at the helm OR they are projects that benefit women directors (e.g., film festivals, funds, etc). The campaigns at the top of the list are the ones ending soonest, so get in there and support ASAP (with $$ or an RT on Twitter). Click the titles to go directly to each project’s crowdfunding page, those in italics are new additions this week.
Thanks for visiting and thank you very much for helping us support and raise awareness about WOMEN DIRECTORS AT WORK!
