Vote for me in The Ultimate Filmmakers Competition!

Hi Global Gals!

I just found I am a semi-finalist in the Ultimate FIlmmakers Competition to win $500K to make my dream project JUA KALI: A HARSH SUN, a script I wrote about recent post-election violence in Kenya, told through POV of a young Kenyan girl. The project was chosen from 2500 entrants, made the quarterfinals of 250, and now the semi-finals which is down to just 23 filmmakers. It's the only project set in Africa, with a girl at the center of the narrative,
very much what Global Girl is all about.

The next stage is the finals where only 5 of us go forward...and 1 person makes that cut via a public vote.

Indeed, it's come to this, struggling artists begging for your vote on the internet...
If I make it, the prize is $500K would likely jumpstart the project into a reality...we could be shooting this year!

Please, if you have time, visit the website to vote...your vote determines the five semi-finalists.
You can see footage shot from the Film Independent's Director's Lab, featuring the actors
Idris Elba from THE WIRE and OBSESSED, EDDIE GATHEGI from Twilight, and VANETTA SMITH from Freedom Writers.
JIM DENAULT is the DP (Maria Full of Grace, Boys Don't Cry).
There is well as some footage from the training I recently did for GLOBAL GIRL in Soweto with young women
to become broadcast journalists to cover the 2010 World Cup.

It's easy--click, vote, and pass along the link to ALL YOUR FRIENDS! Tweet, facebook, whatever...and many thanks! May we all have an inspired 2010!!
