We love firecrackers here at One Bird Mocking. Partly because our CEO has a touch of pyromania, but also because they’re a metaphor for our own upcoming fundraising campaign. A lit fuse…the tingling anticipation…and either a satisfying explosion or a thudding disappointment. Fingers crossed for the former.
Wishing all our followers a happy and safe 4th of July!
Happy Birthday to Alice Guy-Blaché, who was born 141 years ago today! Alice was the first female filmmaker, directing, writing, and producing over 700 movies for the famed Gaumont Film Company. She was a pioneer in the art of narrative filmmaking, an innovator in both early sound recording and special effects, and the first woman to co-own and manage a movie studio.
Alice, the film industry has largely forgotten you. But we want you to know that we’ve got your back…and you will appear in THE THREAT OF SEX, our upcoming app celebrating amazing women.
