Hey, I'm Mary!
Hi! I'm Mary and I am part of team of people who are trying to make a film about our hometown, Minneapolis. It's called Minneapolis the Movie! The creator of our feature film, Christine Clayburg, has been trying to sell the flick to Hollywood producers for several years. A major production house bit on her idea.. but they wanted to make the movie about Minneapolis in Vancouver! No way! So now we're tring to fund the movie through Seed and Spark. It's a fundraising website that specifically helps produce films that feature diversity and inclusion. By producing the film independently, we can ensure local talent of all ethnicities are included in the process.
So here is what you need to know: on September 12 we will be launching everything you need to know to join us on our mission to make
Minneapolis the Movie IN MINNEAPOLIS.
By Following THIS page you will be notified as soon as our campaign goes live.
Our FIRST 100 followers will ensure a place at the top of our list to contact for cast and crew.
As for a little background about me, I'm a freelance broadcast journalist and public relations pro who has worked in television markets all over the United States. I reported and anchored in cities such as New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Minneapolis and have appeared on CNN and the Fox News Channel during major news events. I won numerous awards, including from the Minnesota Broadcasters Association and Women in Communications. I was even the first reporter to gain an exclusive interview with boxing heavyweight Evander Holyfield after his infamous ear bite.
Most importantly I have passion for pets, especially homeless animals. I write a pet blog called Whisker Fabulous from the perspective of my cat, Farley Waddlesworth and Josie the dog. The three of us serve as brand ambassadors for several pet companies.
