Alpha Females Series by filmmaker Angela DeGarmo for Sony's Alpha Female contest
My intro video was accidently deleted. Here is a new link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2UNOIznqvw
Dear friends at Sony, I had issues with the application process...
This is my first time entering your competition. I read the rules and f&q section multiple times during my preparation process. It was my understanding that "Up to five (5) photos and/or video examples of what “Be Alpha” means to you" meant that filmmakers could submit up to 5 videos. So just for you I created two shorts that I had a heavier hand in the creation, filming and editing. Here we are the last day of entry and I start filling out the online application, I get to the second page and my heart sinks because I am allowed to enter only one video. I could not move on to the second until the first page was filled out all of the way. If I had known that I would have edited my material differently and changed my interview questions.
The best remedy I could think of for the time that I had left was to make it a series with two back to back episodes on one video. This at least shows my ability to do something serial in nature which is a portion of my career goals.
Although, I was able to change the text in most of the first page to reflect this change in my plan, I was NOT able to replace the resume pdf. I was going to also submit two films I previously made. Since I can not please accept this amendment to my resume. The duties sections for Rebel Pictures should read...
"Duties: Production supervisor (combination of producer, set supervisor, production assistant and set mother) for 6 projects. Two of which are still in post and the remaining 4 have won 18 awards and have 17 nominations on the independent festival circuit so far. Below are links to the two Rebel Pictures projects, I am most proud of as producer and examples of how I coordinate a team of masters of their craft.

Song for the Moon
If exchanged for the same paragraph in the resume it will still be under 500 words.
This video is public so please contact me if you would like the password for Foreword. It is still on the festival circuit, Rebel Picture wants to keep that private. It is by far the best work we have done as a team.
Feel free to watch these one first if I get far enough in the process to warrant further viewing of my work.
Thank you for your consideration.
