My name is Stephanie Schleicher, and I have wanted to be a filmmaker since I was about ten years old. That was the year my family bought a video camera. It was the eighties, so it was huge and bulky and it rested on your shoulder. Inside was a full-size VHS tape. I spent many days holed up in a dark upstairs room with my Barbie house, sweating, re-recording scenes over and over. Barbie was always falling over in the middle of the scene on her tiny Barbie toes. Everything about my life seemed to fall into place.
Every little phone and tablet now has an editing program on it. That was only a dream when I was a kid… and then in college, when I sat there with a film splicer, Scotch tape stuck to my fingers.
