Reel Grrl

Summer is a high school senior in Seattle. She has been a Reel Grrls participant since 2009, and will continue to be a Reel Grrl for the rest of her life. She has created several films, ranging from music videos for local bands to promotional videos for nonprofits.

Summer recently participated in the Reel Grrls' advanced thesis program. In this class, she and three other filmmakers created While We're Asleep, a short documentary highlighting the voices of children talking about dreaming. The film has screened publicly twice and has been shown to city hall. It has also been accepted into Film Festival in a Box and the Citizen Jane Film Festival. Summer is using the portfolio she has built with the help of Reel Grrls to apply to colleges across the country to study film.
