Galentine's Day - a video from WeRacket
Happy Galentine's Day! (Oh, and Valentine's!)
We recently did the sound design for Racket (#weracket) in their #knowtheflow campaign this year. SPOILER - it's about menstruation...
Ummm, describe this, please.
Well, it's best described in the words of weRacket.com co-founder and Broadway's own, Margot Seibert (ROCKY, In Transit, Tamar of the River).
"We hope showing folks talking about periods without shame (and with humor!) will confirm the taboo as a relic of the past. Men can talk about it, decision makers can get mentruators the (UNTAXED) products they need, women can take care of their period without feeling the need to hide it, etc."
Yes, we helped with a video about menstruation, and we're damn proud of it! It's a thing, it happens, it's normal, and we helped with a humorous take on the feminine cycle.
The campaign features Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie, The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee, Peter and the Starcatcher), Phillipa Soo (Hamilton, Amélie, The Parisian Woman, Great Comet), and Olli Haaskivi (Mr. Robot, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Orange Is The New Black). The video was directed by Broadway veterans, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Kate Weatherhead, co-creators of the critically-acclaimed web-series, Submissions Only, and authors of the three-book series, Jack & Louisa.
