dear friends and family of julie self and sarah laws,
my two friends have been on my mind very much. i started a project a long time ago and dropped it because i was finding that i was getting nowhere. the people who could help could only get halfway themselves, or for unknown (personal/financial/etc) reasons we all couldnt quite pull together and get this train moving.
moving forward, i would like to pick this up again and get a documentary about these two wonderful friends we lost. some of you know sarah laws more than others, and some of you know julie self more than others. some of you may know neither. pay no attention to that. starting now, i would like to resurrect this idea and get everyones ideas on what they want in this piece.
i want to know ideas, i want to know how YOU would want to see a short film/documentary/full feature on the likes, loves, and standing ovation of two people set to conquer the world with comedy and art.
for starters, i think it would help if a community was developed for this cause. since creating a myspace for both of them (pre-myspace comedy profiles), add them as a friend(www.myspace.com/jokingaroundwithjulieself)
. also, if you have any sound clips, videos, etc. of either julie, sarah laws, or both, please! send them in and i will post them immediately. i want to see this flourish. additionally, any stories you have would be wonderful- leave comments! i am looking forward to getting this off the ground...again!
i miss both julie and sarah laws, as i know much of you do, and would love to see their lives captured for their friends and family. personally, i want to visit everyone who knew julie and sarah laws. i would like to set up interviews with family and friends, hear stories, get pictures, and maybe figure some shit out. not everyone knows whats been going on with betty ward, the trials, and how our loss will be avenged, if legally.
and i may be spinning my wheels here. but i am having a hard time sitting here, slowly forgetting what they sound like, and what memories i have slowly get lost in the things i have to remember for work, or next weekend, or will i have enough money for rent. unfortunately, due to the overwhelming responsibility that comes with this project, and my lack of resources, any and all help would be appreciated. i want as much feedback for the sake of creating an end result we can all get behind.
please reply with thoughts, ideas, and questions. i want to make this something we can all call our own. thank you.
