Act I: Meet Jenny Deller, the Hot Al Gore

June 23, 2009

It was love at first sight when we first heard Jenny Deller, the writer/director of Future Weather, speak at an Ignite Philly event.

Out of all of the awesome (literally, all of them) Ignite Philly presentations, the Future Weather team – Jenny Deller and Kristin Fairweather – made this shy girl go up and introduce herself and beg for an interview.¹

Jenny and Kristin were there promoting Future Weather, the environmentally-friendly story of a young girl’s crusade to change the world. The two emoted enthusiasm, gratitude, and a contagious eco-chic vibe that made me want to take up composting. These two hardworking had something to celebrate.  They had just received word (again, literally) that Future Weather was a finalist in Netflix’s Find Your Voice Competition.²

Now, you probably wouldn’t have guessed that someone (me!), completely inspired by Deller’s mission to make a coming-of-age film reminiscent of some of the best Young Adult fiction out there – Harriet the Spy, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler – centered around environmental issues – post-Inconvenient Truth – would miss not one but TWO interviews with the creator.

It’s true.

How can I show Jenny Deller – and the world, for that matter – how excited I am for her film and how thankful I am that she gave me a third chance to pick her brain?

Well, I’ll write a few blogs, of course.

In the spirit of film-making, I present one girl’s story – er, another girl’s story – of realizing that a person’s actions or inactions have consequences, affect others, and can even impact “Future Weather.”

In three acts.

¹ Okay. Maybe I’m not shy. But I was starstruck so it took guts.

² Have you rocked the vote yet?  What about a t-shirt or tree rings tote bag?

    You should really think about working on developing this blog into a major authority in this market. You evidently have a grasp handle of the matters everybody is searching for on this website anyways and you could definitely even make a buck or two off of some promotion. I would explore following recent topics and raising the amount of write ups you put up and I guarantee you’d begin seeing some awesome targeted traffic in the near future. Just a thought, good luck in whatever you do!
