Women of Light

Logline: A feature documentary highlighting some of the leading women in cinematography and inspiring those of the future.

Elevator Pitch: 
Did you know there are less than 15 women out of the more than 350 members of the American Society of Cinematographers? “Women of Light” is a documentary focused on the leading women in the industry and their struggles and successes of how they got there. It is a film about past challenges, present ambitions and future impacts women are making in the world of cinematography.

Production Team:
Director: Julia Swain

Producers: Julia Swain, Chelsi Johnston, Annie Pace, Andrew Becker

Cinematographers: Julia Swain and Teodora Totoiu

Editor: Chelsi Johnston

About the Film:
I have been on this production with Julia Swain since its beginning roughly two years ago. In that time, we have managed to gather most of the leading women in cinematography in personal and professional one-on-one interviews. It has been an eye-opening and honoring experience to be attached to such a wonderful project that brings to light such an amazing group of women who have worked so hard in their field against such difficult odds. I wish for this film to make the impression it deserves with people inside and outside of the industry everywhere.  -Andrew Becker

Current Status: Still fundraising, near the end of production with post production still to be completed.
