ABOUT THIS PROJECT

 

A film about the true story of female DJs from around the world in a male dominated industry. No one would think that the electronic music industry is in conflict, but the truth is that DJs are more segregated that politicians or business executives.

Girls Gone Vinyl is the world's first documentary about female DJs, their struggles and successes, what inspires them and what drives them in spite of overwhelming odds. Watch these women converge on Detroit for the largest electronic music festival in North America and hear their stories firsthand.

THE PLAN

 

Preproduction will begin immediately. Shooting will commence promptly at the start of the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit which takes place May 28 to 30, 2011. To learn more about the festival please visit their site http://www.movement.us/

Out of 107 acts at the festival there are 6 female DJs preforming. We will be interviewing and filming their performances at the festival itself and numerous afterparties taking place during the weekend.

We will also be hosting our own all female DJ line up event during the festival on Sunday May 29th.

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?

 

We're producing, directing, shooting, and editing the film. By day, Jenny Lafemme is a video and film producer for Parliament Studios, who will handle film production and post-production. Funding for this project goes toward flight costs for DJs to interview, travel for shooting, camera equipment needed to produce beautiful footage, and marketing and PR costs. The movie will be shot digitally to reduce cost and speed up production. All people working on the film will be donating their time and talent to bring this story to life.

LATEST UPDATES & NEWS

 

 

Hello fans!

We would like to take a moment and update you on what we have been up to the past few months!
It has been very busy since we raised our Kickstarter money. We have traveled to Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Chicago to interview more than 40 women!! We also did official project events in each city with many of the women playing these great events.

 

We have upcoming events in Detroit and more filming/interviews to do in Detroit and Miami during WMC to complete the film.

It has been such an amazing experience and so inspirational. We have received fan mail from all over the world expressing support for the project and thanks for the voice we are giving many women.

 

Our experience with all the women we have interviewed in US and Europe has been mind-blowing!! For every women we knew that took part and gave us in depth interviews, they sent us more women that we did not know. The stories and dedication that we heard from all these women are so close to our own that it gave goose bumps. It was important that we not only interview DJ's but also producers, label owners, agency heads and women that work in the industry at places like Beatport and Native Instruments.

Our goal is to truly encapsulate and highlight all sides of the business and show so many of those young women just starting out all the ways you can make it in this business.

We are fortunate to have Rebekah Farrugia, a wonderful female writer and expert on the scene to now come on board and help us develop our script.

We have hundreds of hours of footage to edit and we are deep in the studio doing so. We will be buried in here until we come out for fresh ocean air in Miami during WMC 2012.

 

We will be quick to put up some new footage for all of you.We are working on getting some exclusive mixes for you and will have some great exclusive tracks for the film from some of these women!

 

So once again
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
