Acclaimed Lesbian Filmmaker Nicole Conn to DIRECT Public Service Announcement for Marriage Equality USA at Andaz West Hollywood
Writer/Director, Nicole Conn known for her groundbreaking lesbian movies Claire Of The Moon (1992), Elena Undone (2010) and A Perfect Ending (2012) featuring Jessica Clark (vampire goddess “Lilith” from HBO’s True Blood), will direct a Marriage Equality PSA that will be released in December.
"Music and video projects like this have the power to impact millions of viewers by showing the love and commitment that is celebrated and protected by passing civil marriage equality for LGBTQ families. We at MEUSA are thrilled to be a part of the SHE4MarriageEquality project!" – Brian Silva Executive Director Marriage Equality USA
SHE4MarriageEquality will launch a high-end video clip to the song SHE produced by LA based WingSpan Films. The song, written and performed by Jen Foster and re arranged into an orchestral dance mix by LA based music producer Eve Nelson, is expected to become a dance anthem as soon as the PSA premieres.
The SHE video will be the first music video directed by multiple Award Winning Writer/Director Conn, who was most recently named one of the top ten gay women in show business by POWER UP!
SHE4MarriageEquality tells a story of what seems to be a traditional bride and groom on their wedding day, to be shot on location at the modern boutique Andaz, in gay-prominent West Hollywood. Choreographer Anthony W Johnson has prepared an exhilarating lyrical dance sequence that will feature two women dancing together which is underrepresented in the media.
Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA), Visit West Hollywood, WOLFE Video, Curve Magazine and Andaz West Hollywood have all signed on as official supporters of the soon-to-be viral video along with a fleet of volunteers from the LGBT community who have contributed in every aspect of this Music Video PSA.
Jen Foster was thrilled by the idea of making a PSA in the form of a music video, “It started out as a small project and now it has snowballed into this large movement. Everyone who has pitched in to make this PSA come to life has been so genuinely excited to help. It has been a really moving experience.”
Among other familiar faces in the video, highlights include guest appearances by award winning actresses Barbara Niven (A Perfect Ending), Nicole Pacent (Anyone But Me) and Gabrielle Christian (South of Nowhere).
Executive Producers Marriage Equality USA, Melke Pty Ltd and Fosterchild Records are very thankful for the support of iConn Films, WingSpan Films, Visit West Hollywood, Andaz West Hollywood, Wolfe Video, Curve Magazine and the LA Gay and Lesbian Center.
