Little Fish Seeks Big Pond

Just saw this article on Reel Chicago, (CLICK HERE TO READ), Ruth Ratny interviews filmmaker Ky Dickens (Fish Out of Water). The article discusses Ky’s motives behind this thought provoking film about homosexuality and religion, the unusual though refreshingly unique use of animation throughout the film and the equally unusual way Ky chose to finance her film… by cashing in her IRA!

Ky even gives Foundation a shout out, as she cites that Anna Patel on-lined and assisted with some creative editing, also cutting the trailer. We’ve hugely supported this film from the moment Ky walked through our door! It’s a wonderful message and brilliantly executed. If you haven’t seen the trailer, please check out the link above!

If you want to see the film, it will be playing at the 28th Reeling: Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival through Nov. 15.

For more details on the film, see

We’re Mid-Coastal!

So, in case you didn’t catch our last newsletter…let me get you up to speed…

We’ve opened an office in Los Angeles!!

The office will be run by Stacy Paris who is no stranger to the Foundation family!


Stacy first cut her teeth in the world of production back in 2003 while working along side Creative Director and company founder Samantha Hart in Los Angeles.  She went on to work for Trio Films and most recently Stacy worked as the Director of Marketing at Immergent, an indie record label in  West L.A..
