It’s a sad week for film lovers. Thank you, Lauren Bacall, for 70 years of smoky-voiced talent, beauty, and class.

Rest in peace, Robin Williams. You were a major talent, and you will be missed.

Congratulations to our amazing cinematographer, Anka Malatynska! While we struggle to make our little film a reality, Anka is bringing something far more important into this world.

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.

Mary Pickford made history 98 years ago today by becoming the first female film star to sign a million dollar contract.

Mary, you’re an inspiration to women everywhere. But you’re kind of making the rest of us look bad.

According to a recent article, average pay for a chief executive last year was $15.2 million.

Shh, don’t tell our CEO that. We’ve got him convinced that the work is its own reward.
