Lights, Camera, Help!

Our short  in support of same sex marriage, “Marriage Equality” was selected out of 235 entries from all across the world to show in the 2010 Lights, Camera, Help Film Festival in Austin, Texas!! Tom Pastorelle edited this piece and it was shot by Ben Chappell. But virtually everyone at Foundation touched this film in some way and we’re all very proud to see it accepted to this festival! The piece was originally created for F.A.I.R. in support of abolishing Prop 8.

Early this year it was selected as one of three finalists by the E-Hero Awards selection committee for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles. The Gala featured U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, as well as actresses Portia DeRossi and Kathy Griffin, who received the Ally for Equality Award.


The festival takes place July 29th – 31st and Foundation L.A.’s Stacy Paris and Anna Patel will be attending the event on our behalf to conduct the Q&A after it screens.

We are proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the cause and thrilled that our piece has been selected for this prestigious event!

Every Heart Matters

A piece we created for F.A.I.R. in support of abolishing Prop 8 called “Every Heart Matters” has been selected as one of three finalists by the E-Hero Awards selection committee for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles!!
The Gala is being held on March 13th at the Hyatt Century Plaza Hotel and will feature U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer. Portia DeRossi will be presented with the HRC Visibility Award and Kathy Griffin will be receiving the Ally for Equality Award.
F.A.I.R. is a group that was formed to fight for marriage equality in California.  One of the founders of the F.A.I.R. organization, Dayna Frank, contacted Foundation’s LA  producer Stacy Paris for help creating a PSA using the Shepard Fairey “Love Unites” ) poster image  for which they secured the rights to use (he also designed the Obama HOPE poster).  Creative Director Samantha Hart called upon writer, Julie Hall, for help in word-smithing a powerful piece for which everyone’s favorite directing duo, Focus Creeps, traveled to San Francisco and Los Angeles to work with real families and couples to shoot candid moments of them in their homes or playing with their children.  The footage was edited by Tom Pastorelle and cut together with graphic images and additional photography  shot on our  stage.
Marriage Equality is not just a California issue, but an issue the whole country is facing.
Foundation’s Stacy Paris says, “We are proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the cause and thrilled that our piece has been selected for this prestigious event.”
Tom will be traveling to Los Angeles to attend the gala! Stay tuned for pictures! And be sure to cast your vote for Best PSA here: http://hrcladinner.com/ehero/index.php
