ROXË15: Update!

You’re probably wondering:
Where in the world is Roxë?

A new voice in science fiction

Roxë15: A sci fi short film

We are thrilled to report that as you read these words,
Roxë15 is in the very capable hands of superb editor Lamont Jack Pearley!
YAAAAAY!

Lamont Jack Pearley

He’s very serious about editing: Lamont Jack Pearley

Jack (who’s also a fantastic filmmaker in his own right) has edited for Bloomberg Business Week and City Lights Media, worked production with Upright Citizens Brigade and in the documentary world — not to mention his work producing, directing and editing his films and Web series. We’re amped that he is now slicing, dicing and cutting Roxë15 into the future-forward visual journey it’s destined to be. Our ETA for the finished film? Early 2014. After Jack does his thing, we still have a couple more post-production bases to cover before prime time…..but baby, we are well on our way.

Stay tuned!

Roxë is a virtual reality programmer on the come-up — and April Matthis is a super-talented shooting star of stage and screen. Both actress and character are passionate, determined, fearless women marching to their own beat, with eyes on the prize.

Not your typical sci-fi protagonist, huh?

Truth in Fiction: Black Girls Code

With 2 days and about 21 hours left on Kickstarter, we are SO AMPED to know about BLACK GIRLS CODE! BGC is an organization out of Oakland, CA created by biotechnology and engineering professional Kimberly Bryant. BGC is crashing through the digital gender divide. (Check them on CNN!)

BGC’s mission: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.

Black Girls Code is EXACTLY the kind of place where a young Roxë would’ve started on her path to programming!
WE LOVE IT!

Hats off and bowing down to Ms. Bryant for setting these girls up to be the REAL ballers of the 21st century —- because as Roxë would tell you, technology WILL be the new currency…

Roxë15 celebrates a truth that’s BETTER than fiction.
HELP US CREATE A NEW VISION OF THE FUTURE.

WHAT?! 3 Days for ROXË15 on Kickstarter?!?!

rx run mouth open_72

Stay tuned for a very exciting tidbit that will prove that Roxë isn’t quite as fictional as you thought — coming up later.
In the meantime, just a reminder that the clock is ticking:
we have 3 days left on Kickstarter.

Innovation is what creativity is all about. And let’s be honest, we’d all like to see new and different on the big screen without sacrificing quality. That’s what this project is all about.

BIG THANKS to all of our supporters thus far….
…..and we look forward to meeting all you new fans.
Let’s get to clicking!
