MARY DOE KICKSTARTER film project backed by Richard Taylor of WETA and starring two actors from THE HOBBIT. Go support this.by Colleen Doran on October 19th, 2013
You are about to embark on a memorable and exciting journey.
MARY DOE is a Horror/Thriller feature film project, in the vein of films such as: Alien, The Thing, Dawn of the Dead and The Terminator. It will blend state of the art “old school” practical effects, thrills and chills, within an exciting and intelligent story.
Cool Creatures. Frightening Make-Up Effects. Stunning Miniature Landscapes. Elaborate Animatronic Characters.
Sounds cool? Well we think so too.
We need your help to create a live action PROMO TRAILER in order to bring Mary Doe to life, so investors can visualize the potential of this film. It will encompass major components of our pre-production build and consolidate all the hard work we have developed over the last couple of years.
Only 1/3 raised and two weeks to go. This is way beyond cool. Richard Taylor of WETA Workshop is endorsing this! I visited the studio when I was in Australia and I was so impressed with everyone there and their terrific work. This would make a cool holiday gift for any horror fan. ZOMBIES!
Will also feature our buddy JED BROPHY who was my model for several lead characters in my comics, and plays one of the dwarves in THE HOBBIT. Stephen Hunter, aka Bombur, also appears in Mary Doe.
This is such a cool project, I hope you’ll give it your support! The supporter goodies are awesome!!! Count me in for a few bucks. Don’t tell my bro this is what he’s getting for Christmas!
Dated 1938, this gem is a time capsule of the attitude toward women creators back in the day. Note that it is signed by a woman.
I got into comics as a professional in the 1980′s and by then, things had not really changed much. There were a few women who had status, some grizzled vets who performed as dragon ladies at the gate, and a handful of hopefuls who knew that they weren’t competing with men for every gig or attention, since most jobs didn’t go to women. So there was some female competition going on that wasn’t very pleasant.
Interesting running into young girls today who go on and on about how there’s just no discrimination in comics because they never experienced it.
You don’t experience it, because what was once a hard road was paved for you.
This letter has been circulating for some time, and I double checked with snopes.com to make sure it was real. It is, though a number of online pundists questioned it, what with it being so amazingly sexist and all. During WWII, the male work force dwindled, and animator positions for women began to open up at Disney.
While a few women had jobs as animators prior to WWII, as the letter correctly states, most of the gigs went to men.
