CURVE MAGAZINE, we heart ethan silverman and the Heroines make their TV debut?

Heroine Films - bi-monthly update!

PRESS -
The Executive Editor of CURVE MAGAZINE has gotten in contact with the Heroines and has expressed interest in doing a story on our project. Diane Anderson-Minshall, the EE went a step further for us as well...she just took the Gladdest Thing trailer and our pitch to Curve Magazine's 15th Anniversary Fest at the Portland GLBT Film Fest and is pitching it for us THIS WEEKEND!!! We're shocked, amazed and can't wait to hear about what's happening. We'll update you all on the article for Curve as soon as we have more info.

And here at home...NC's Second Cinema is a television show that was created to showcase Independent Film & Video from Producers in the Triad region of NC. Second Cinema has contacted the Heroines to request an interview and will show the trailer and the interview on their show which will run for the entire month of JULY!!! We'll hopefully be able to broadcast a copy on the website, so that our peeps outside of NC can see it as well. We're pretty excited and Second Cinema has been amazing thus far. Check out their website for more info. on times and channels.

ALSO - The Heroines will be attending the MELISSA FERRICK concert here in Carrboro, NC on May 26 at Cat's Cradle. We'll be in our Heroine T's,so stop by and say hey. And support an amazing artist --- Melissa Ferrick!!!

In case anyone missed it, we also had an article in the Chapel Hill News. Check it out in our IN THE NEWS SECTION on the website.

HERO/INE OF THE (BI)WEEK
You may recognize our latest & sexiest Hero/ine of the Week, Ethan Silverman from our trailer...Ethan is a wonderful actor from NC...He not only hooked us up with our biggest location for the shoot, he also put his gorgeous mug on memorex for us and now girls all over the world are swooning ;) We love you, Eth...and tell your mom thanks for the amazing donation!!!

PROSPECTS
Unfortunately we're not able to say who, but we wanted you all to know that at this point in time, a Creative Executive for a major Cable Network has expressed interest in the The Gladdest Thing Project. She is reading the script and looking over our Production Plan as I write this.

On the same note, an amazing actress, whom Mel originally wrote a part for has just gotten in contact with the Heroines and has agreed to read the script. Keep your fingers crossed on this one...it would make our year if she likes the script...

FYI
The Heroines are going into Pre-Production on another feature that is being shot in August. Amanda will be acting in the film, Mel is Line Producing and Alex is Production Manager on the show, which is called The Dog Days of Summer, a Tamiami and Film Foundry Production. The feature already has domestic & foreign Distribution and Theatrical Release. So you'll be able to see us up on the big screen sometime next year (or in Blockbuster) ;) We'll still be updating and working on Heroine Films stuff, but will be a little less present for a couple of months...Write to us though...we love talking to you all...

GEAR
The Heroines have worked out a deal with Mel Wall, our amazing screenprinter, for new shirts and a new logo. Thanks to an amazing donation by VICKIE HANNAH, we're able to get a new logo and new style. So we'll report back as soon as we have the new gear in. We still need pics of you in your gear to post, so send them to INQUIRIES@HEROINEFILMS.NET!

MISCELLANEOUS
Send your congrats to the Heroines...Amanda just graduated from The University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill last week and Alex just finished up at the North Carolina School of the Arts, School of Filmmaking. And Mel...send your congrats for when she's able to quit her day job ;) And watch out world, cause' the Heroines just got some edjumacation... ;)

That's all for now, lovely Hero/ines...Hit us up anytime.

Thanks so much for your support!! We love you all...

First off, thanks to everyone who commented about the PHELPS Protest. It's good to see everyone putting their two cents in.

Second - CURVE MAGAZINE IS DOING A PIECE ON HEROINE FILMS!!!!! Also, Ms. Diane Anderson-Minshall, Curve's Executive Editor is taking the Heroine Films Trailer and Promotions to the Portland Lesbian & Gay Film Festival which is honoring Curve's 15th Anniversary!!!! We are floored, quite frankly.

Third - SECOND CINEMA is showing the Trailer and will interview the Heroines. The interview and trailer will be aired and broadcast for the entire month of July. We'll try to have it up on the site for those of you who are not in NC. For those of you in NC, we'll post times/channel as soon as we have them!

Also, there's a very special someone reading our script as I write this and we're pretty excited about it. Wish I could share details, but that would be assy of me ;)

Stop by and say hi!
We love you all!

Tonight we witnessed something that saddened us more than you'll ever know. The "God Hates Everyone" bandwagon came to town to protest a high school production of "The Laramie Project" and we went to counter the protest.

Click here (the Laramie Project): http://www.heroinefilms.net/inthenews.html to see photos/our story about the event.

Stop the HATE. find some peace.

Check out this amazing letter our screenprinter wrote for us as a way to connect with the GLBT Business Community...

She's amazing!

If you know anyone who is in the community, please forward it to them. It would help a great deal!

See the letter here...

Thanks, all! You're the best!

Phelps Protest, EBAY and a new hero/ine?

*****HEROINE FILMS BI-MONTHLY NEWSLETTER******

Short, but Sweet...

****IN THE NEWS

Check out the Heroines in the Sunday Edition of the Chapel Hill News! We'll have a column in the MY VIEW SECTION! All feedback is welcome!


****HEROINE OF THE WEEK

VICKIE HANNAH is our HEROINE OF THE WEEK! In HONOR of Mother's Day! Check Vickie out! She's an incredibly gifted actress and one of our biggest supporters (not to mention our "mom on set...) We love you, Vickie!!!

****HEROINES LIVE
This sorta falls under the LIVE category... ;)

This Friday, May 6th, 7-7:30pm the anti-queer hate mongering preacher
Fred Phelps will be protesting the play 'The Laramie Project' at the
Durham School of the Arts. He has received a permit to protest only on
the sidewalk in front of the school, not on the school grounds or
anywhere else. Therefore, it will be extremely easy to block him and
his message of hate.

The Laramie Project tells the story of Matthew Shepard, a queer man who
was beaten to death in Laramie a few years back.

Phelps has been preaching his message of hate for years. He runs the
websites godhatesfags.com and godhatesamerica.com. Check those out for
examples of his disgusting hate-filled messages.

Come to the Durham School of the Arts at around 6:30pm on Friday to take action against this man! DSA is 400 North Duke Street in Durham,
opposite the West Corporation Street corner. Bring noise making
devices, banners, puppets, and anything else that may come in handy.

There will be an event at Duke University East Campus starting at 1pm
and going until near the protest time.

***** OOOOH EBAY
Boy, so the Heroines have a bidding opp. for you! ;) We've got a Heroine Films Memorabilia Package up over at EBAY if anyone wants to check it out!!!

Any questions? Comments? Suggestions? Please feel free to e-mail us at inquiries@heroinefilms.net

love you all!

A Letter to all of our friends & family:

Due to artistic differences we have decided to part ways with Cherrae Stuart. She is an amazing actress, friend and supporter, but our paths were leading us in opposite directions. We have an amazing amount of respect for her work ethic and we are grateful to have had an opportunity to work with her.

We wish her the best in all of her endeavors personal and professional.

All Our Best,
Amanda, Mel and Alex
