I am very excited about our up-coming production with Wardrobe for Opportunity. This Oakland based non-profit provides professional clothing for men and women that are starting a new career and may not have the resources to purchase a new wardrobe. Since 1995, Wardrobe for Opportunity has prepared more than 15,000 clients for success in the professional workplace. This week I was contacted by Sally Trautwein, Executive Director of Wardrobe for Opportunity. She explained that they are looking for a short documentary film highlighting their male and female client of the year award recipients to be screened at their yearly fundraising luncheon “Spring to Success.”
Using a documentary style we will use the personal narrative of the two clients as a window into the Wardrobe for Opportunity program. We hope to create a moving account of the “dress for success” concept and invest the audience into plight of the program.
