Wanted to share a few really cool stills from a recent shoot Shawn Lennon and I did last Sunday! Did a little video profile on the San Diego Derby Dolls' General Manager, Nili - AKA Isabelle Ringer.
Such a sweet and undeniably bad ass lady! Can't wait to show ya'll the finished product!
And actually, if you know a chick who kicks ass (either an athlete, musician, artist) in the Southern Cali area, let me know! We'd love to create more stories of bad ass women like Nili here!
My short doc, PRIZEFIGHTER (a single mom/female boxer hoping to make it in the professional world of boxing) will be moving on to Vimeo as part of Brooklyn On Demand - a channel dedicated to films by in Brooklyn or by Brooklyn-ers! The film is currently on youtube and has gotten over 4,500 views and some really great comments! (Note: I will be taking it down from Youtube soon... LAST CALL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut_NkfS-GDc)
I'm stoked to be working with Brooklyn On Demand actually. They were the first film festival (The Art of Brooklyn) to accept/screen Prizefighter and now they're creating this new branch to their program and I'm very excited to be a part of it. It's been 2 years since I made that film and seeing it again (I cut a new trailer and poster) has been kind of wild. It's very real and gritty (some pretty harsh grain haha) but there's also an odd sense of innocence to it.
So I guess this is the formal goodbye as well as hello as Prizefighter moves onto it's next incarnation (or whatever you might want to call it lol).
Thanks to all the viewers and supporters for the film! Stay up to date with Heather: http://www.heathertheheathardy.net/
And of course I'll post links to when it's up on Vimeo/Brooklyn On Demand!

Footage from another boxing enthusiast of that same fight I shot back in 2012! You can see me down in the crowds with my camera haha:
Just kidding. I don't have a staff writer. Yet.
