Our Director of Photography is Bob Elfstrom, an extraordinary cinematographer with a lifetime of credits, including Director of Photography on scores of PBS specials, including American Masters, Frontline, National Geographic. Our editor, Steve Cohen, won the Robert Wise award for contribution to film lm editing in 2007, and has edited many Emmy-award winning shows, and one of my all-time favorite films,
Ramblinʼ Rose with Robert Duval and Laura Dern. Cristen Carr Strubbe has signed on as our production manager. Her work includes American Beauty, Ali, Catch Me if you Can, The Prestige, and No Strings Attached. . We have gathered around us already an amazing group of committed A-list professionals. Each of them read the script and has joined our team. Our director is a young up-and-coming talent, Michael Buffo (Istructions Not Included, A Long Shot), who has a deep and original insight into teenagers and how they work. He is committed to offer the young filmmakers of his conservatory positions of responsibility mentored by our industry professionals. (HARAMotionPictures.com). We have partnered with ImpactBayArea, a full-impact self-defense program for women , who will work with us for the scenes in the movie where Jane learns how to fight, and move through her fear. It is a wonderful program, and incredibly impactful for girls to see on film. And we are already joining forces with Rape Crisis Centers around the country and Canada.

To further explain, here is a quote from the "Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video,
A Future of Public Media Project, funded by the Ford Foundation"
DESCRIPTION: Sometimes video makers quote copyrighted material (for instance, music, video, photographs, animation, text) not in order to comment upon it, but because it aptly illustrates an argument or a point. For example, clips from Hollywood films might be used to demonstrate changing American attitudes toward race; a succession of photos of the same celebrity may represent the stages in the star's career; a news clip of a politician speaking may reinforce an assertion.
PRINCIPLE: This sort of quotation generally should be considered fair use and is widely recognized as such in other creative communities. For instance, writers in print media do not hesitate to use illustrative quotations of both words and images. The possibility that the quotes might entertain and engage an audience as well as illustrate a video maker's argument takes nothing away from the fair use claim. Works of popular culture typically have illustrative power precisely because they are popular. This kind of use is fair when it is important to the larger purpose of the work but also subordinate to it. It is fair when video makers are not presenting the quoted material for its original purpose but to harness it for a new one. This kind of use is, thus, creating new value.
