I recently recieved a call regarding a new media project that is in the process of being launched. They are looking for sponsorship or at least some exposure to bring awareness. I told Rosie that this is not something we normally do as our energy is usually spent on court support, prison outreach and education but if she could present her project to the group, I would be open to such sponsorship. Please comment or message input to [email protected]! Blessings and here’s the pitch
I wanted to carefully think about what I wanted to construct for your team. We are a team of artists working on a project that will hopefully open a serious conversation about the cancer, conventional treatments, “alternative” treatments, the legalization of marijuana and it’s causalities.
Joletta Hardman and I first started out by having strong opinion about the conflicts our society has, and the lifestyle and choices available to us as women in the San Francisco Bay Area. As we indulged our opinion through our art. The script HUSH The Series reflected what really mattered to us in a creative capacity. We created a women’s story surrounded by conflict that faced us in the region we live in, the San Francisco Bay, the impact several conflicts has on us as individuals and as a “village”… Little did we realize how deep this story goes into our community.
I always believe in merging people together and working as an ensemble. With this project, like everything else I do, I wanted to merge communities that benefit best from having a relationship. Like I said in our conversation, when I came across your website, I thought how amazing would it be for reach out to your community.. for me it was obvious to have a relationship. I do realize now, how delicate our relationship could be. I admire and in awe of your work. The more people I meet as a result of our story, the more I feel like I’ve been surfing through life. My heart is touch by all these warriors that go up to battle for individuals who would not have a life otherwise… Medical Cannabis Doctors and Advocates like yourself.
Initially, the story was created to serve a small showcase purpose. Since it has evolved, we now realize it can serve more people than just us and the entertainment community. The story is inspired by true events in the past… we are astound at how many people still live this reality.
“HUSH The Series” (inspired by true events) is about a “Bay Area doctor imprisoned for her discovery and administration of a controversial home-grown cancer cure” and is currently in preproduction with an expected summer shoot date. The series analyzes individual and cultural ideals as well as the search for a cure to the human and cancer condition. The story begins with Dr. Susan Rothburger in jail being interviewed by one of her former cancer patients, reporter Jule Watson. Together they work to discover who turned Susan into the FDA and how they might get her out. The following episodes weave around the diverse personalities and events surrounding Susan’s arrest and trial.
Though the story is fiction, it was inspired by true stories of persecuted doctors using unconventional treatment methods, as well as testimonials from communities that swear cannabis has healed their incurable disease.
In conclusion, we aspire to present this story to open the door (gently) to the internet/web base communities on a global level. Distribution licencing has yet to be decided. Not necessarily to focus on one side, but all sides of this story, and why people do what they do. Presenting this drama, we hope it will touch audiences emotionally, for people to decide for themselves what may be just or injust in our society. What good parents do for their children, offer choices, we as artists, try humbly to model that and offer choices to our audience. With that in mind, I hope we can start a relationship between us and your community for mutual support.
Let me know your thoughts,we appreciate your willingness and efforts and understand which ever your teams decides. Nonetheless, since you are sending out a newsletter today, here are some feature tools:
