Process

The teaser segment Creepers on the Bridge went viral in September 2014, amassing over 2 million views and reaching nearly every major news outlet across the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas. This led us to start a Kickstarter campaign, raising over $25,000 in one month.

Creepers on the Bridge

In December 2013, I conducted preliminary interviews for the documentary, inviting anyone who was willing to come speak about the issue of sexual harassment for a talk, using an online campaign Invitation to Let your Voice be Heard. Key quotes from these interviews have been compiled below.
