Project Invisible: A Power Anthem for Older Women A Project of Shorts
Musical video shines a comedic spotlight on the invisibility of older women
"Old age ain't no place for sissies." Bette Davis
Project Invisible is a power anthem for older women; a musical video that shines a comedic spotlight on the invisibility of older women in our society. Created by Joan Larason and Amy Rubin, two Boston area improvisers, Project Invisible was born after Joan began to sing to people who ignored her in public. Amy calls it "musical cruelty."
The video short is built around a song with original music by composer Stephen Gilbane gilbanemusic.com and with lyrics by Larason & Rubin. The video is being produced by The Women in Comedy Festival (WICF) https://wicf.com, directed by Michelle Barbera, co-founder of WICF and http://wmamfilms.com
We are raising money to cover production costs, including hiring actors who can actually sing! The video will be widely distributed online in the Spring/Summer of 2017, following a premier at a local venue.
Project Invisible - a big,bodacious video on behalf of older women everywhere.
