Vote for Lynne M: 5

I would like to earn a living as a Filmmaker and Director. This has been a passion of mine since I can remember, but as life would have it, an emotionally abusive marriage harbored me from my dreams. Well I finally escaped that marriage after 32 years and after my two adult children moved out and I started believing that I could do anything I put my mind to, even if I were no longer a youngster. My abusive experiences in my childhood and adulthood took me on a path to want to help others like myself, so I plan to learn to write better, about those things that need to be addressed, and put it on film. I would love to make documentaries that focus on the fight against domestic violence and street violence and the fight against prejudice between the races, as well as prejudice between gender and same-sex preferences. To accomplish this fete I will perform research and schedule interviews and make many acquaintances who have the same passion. Life is too short and I know I can’t save everyone, but I want to make an effort to make a change in our communities; a change in our society and definitely a change in the world and making documentaries of this nature, could be the tool I need to accomplish this fight. Thank you in advance for the opportunity!
