August assignment: "Women in Blues"
I’ll be hitting the Southern region of the United States in early August with Producer, Lisa Eisman of U n Me Films. It will be phase one; researching a documentary about how the blues and gospel women singers/songwriters and musicians have influenced music today. "Women in Blues" will be an assignment close to my heart.
We’ll base in Chicago for around four days before starting a road trip. The plan is to track down through Memphis to Clarksdale Mississippi. I’ll no doubt record some sequences along the way on a Sony A7s however principle photography will hopefully take start next year. The story will be based around their historic endeavors so we know where they came from, their homes and what they did or do to succeed and then fast forward into the now and watch them as they groove.
