"We were completely blown away by
the high level of instruction, mentoring that Kristi, Sam and Erika provided these girls. To go from concept to completed short in 2 weeks while helping each girl find their own voice exceeded all expectations for what a program like this could achieve."
from the cast
"The material and the operation of the entire camp was top notch. As an actress I was incredibly moved by the scripts the girls wrote. True, heart felt and impactful stories that were carefully crafted and executed. The guidance and skill they provided I know is invaluable to these campers."
from the campers
"Shoot Like A Girl has deepened my passion for filmmaking. To be taught by women, work alongside women and shoot my film with women...just being in the atmosphere with Honey Head I felt comfortable and empowered. Because of this experience I have the tools to continue."
