    Philadelphia based, History Making Productions (HMP), a documentary film production house, today announced the launch of its second film series on the city’s history, which will focus on the role that women have played over the past 350 years.

    “Women of Philadelphia: A Documentary is an exciting venture that will explore the extraordinary and the ordinary contributions of women throughout the city’s history and to do so in a way that we believe will be relevant and meaningful to audiences today”, noted Series Creator and Producer Nancy Moses.

    Women of Philadelphia: A Documentary will be six made-for-television episodes supported with a variety of digital media including webisodes and other short films as well as a robust educational and civic engagement component.

    “We are focused on the significant challenges that face women today such as the education of their children; acquiring and using power; dealing with crime and abuse; balancing the pressures of work and family; expressing life’s emotions through creativity in art, performance and athletics; and wellness and well being”, noted Producer Lauren Katz. “We expect each episode will focus on the historical roots of one of these contemporary themes”, she added.

     HMP has produced a short video to promote the project.  The video and general project information is available on the website www.womenofphilly.com. 

    Production costs for the series will approximate $1.4 million.  HMP expects to generate significant support through its planned program of corporate sponsorships and through philanthropic gifts.  To date, the project has generated funding commitments of $650,000.

    “We are so pleased to announce that Independence Blue Cross has committed to being our Presenting Sponsor.  That one of Philadelphia’s leading corporate citizens is prepared to evidence its support for assuring that the story of women is told through film reflects how timely and important this series is”, noted Ms. Katz. “We are so excited by this support and believe it will stimulate other area enterprises to come on board”, she added.

    Dr. Cathy L. Greenberg, a nationally recognized business advisor, coach and best selling business book author will serve as an Executive Producer and represent the project nationally.  She has committed a significant sponsorship investment to the project.

    The series will have another dynamic feature. 

    “This film project about women and for women, and their brothers, sons and fathers will be made by women”, Ms. Moses said.  “Our team of scholars and researchers, our production team and our post production team will be comprised of women.  That alone is another Philadelphia first.”, she observed.

    The official “coming out” party for the project will be hosted by the Forum for Executive Women and PNC Bank on Wednesday evening, February 26th at 6:00 PM at the Bank’s Philadelphia headquarters. 

    The Forum for Executive Women has invited its membership.  A brief talk will be given by nationally syndicated journalist and Woodrow Wilson Center scholar Jamie Stiehm who will be speaking about her forthcoming book on Philadelphia Quaker leader Lucretia Mott.

    In addition to Independence Blue Cross, Dr. Cathy Greenberg and the Forum for Executive Women, Women of Philadelphia has built broad support from a wide range of women’s community organizations and heritage and cultural institutions.  Lists of these supporting partners together with heritage and cultural institutions which are the project’s heritage sposnors is attached.

    The series will be executive produced in part through generous financial support from Kay Halloran (Halloran Family Philanthropy), Bonnie McCausland (McCausland Foundation) and national business consultant and executive coach Cathy Greenberg (xcel Institute).  HMP plans to undertake extensive outreach to area companies, foundations and to women representing a diverse cross section of the region.  In addition, a crowdfunding campaign to seek smaller contributions is planned for later in 2014.

    “History was once a private domain for male historians who tended to focus on stories about men.  Women did important things here and all over the country.  It is time to use film, a great platform for public history, to tell these stories from an urban perspective.  That Philadelphia’s women are the first to do a project like this one, mirrors the history of our contributions to our unique community.  To be launching during Women’s History Month and at a time when the public’s attention is so riveted on the changing roles and successes of women makes this project so important and timely”, Ms. Moses concluded.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA – When it comes to innovative design no one comes close to the avant-garde and sometimes surprising combinations that Mother Nature seems to create every season. This recognition of nature as the quintessential designer was the inspiration for “SURFACE,” a collaborative cultural exchange by visual artists supporting the VIADUCTgreene project. VIADUCTgreene is a non-profit organization advocating for the creation of a three-mile linear greenspace using a section of the former Philadelphia and Reading Railroad.

                SURFACE, an exhibition of wallpaper, panel and tile by Julia Blaukopf, is presented as part of the 2012 DesignPhiladelphia Festival, in partnership with The University of the Arts. The 8th annual city-wide celebration of all things design will run for five-days from October 10 to 14 in unique venues and spaces throughout the city.             SURFACE will open Thursday, October 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the offices of Cityspace, 2200 Walnut Street. The exhibition is free and open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. through Sunday, October 14. SURFACE is presented by Michael Garden of Cityspace and The Callahan Ward Companies with the idea management and collaboration of Octo Design Group and Brands Imaging.                

                “As a professional graphic designer, I know that visual media is the great equalizer. It links gender, religion, and economic status,” says Wendy Verna, president of Octo Design Group. “For that reason choosing VIADUCTgreene as the subject of our 2012 DesignPhiladelphia exhibit made a lot of sense. Philadelphia is the proverbial melting pot and this green space project will run through and link several neighborhoods in the city and will re-purpose a historical railroad line,” she adds.

                Now in its 21st year, Octo Design Group, 803 S. 4th St., Philadelphia, is a strategic graphic design firm specializing in marketing and advertising, online and in print. Octo helps clients develop a distinct and recognizable identity to serve as the platform for their brand. The firm is driven by the belief that each piece of marketing collateral, both traditional print and digital media, should have a look and feel that is unique to the brand, but recognizable from one medium to another. Wendy Verna, president of Octo Design Group, is a graduate of Moore College of Art, and a member of the National Association of Professional Women and Professional Women’s Roundtable (PWR).

                Julia Blaukopf is a Philadelphia photographer, artist and designer. She creates social art and focuses on visual storytelling through photographs, mixed media works, jewelry and large-scale fabric installations. Her photographs have been exhibited internationally, in Munich and Copenhagen, as well as nationally, in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Portland, Oregon.

                For more information on the exhibition, contact Octo Design Group at (215) 925-8280 or visit www.facebook.com/SURFACEPhila.
