Welcome to POWER UP, 1 Oct 2009 [cached]
POWER Up also announced that Itty Bitty will be directed by Babbit (But...I'm a Cheerleader), produced by Andrea Sperling (Pumpkin, D.E.B.S.), Lisa Thrasher and Chris Stinson (Starcrossed) and executive produced by POWER UP founder Stacy Codikow (Under the Hula Moon, D.E.B.S.).
It's with their spirit and tremendous contribution that we have been so successful with our shorts," stated Lisa Thrasher, POWER UP Senior VP of Film Production, "It only makes sense to create POWER UP's first feature together."
Lisa, by the way, is Codikow's partner in life as well, and a full-time volunteer for POWER Up. "For me POWER UP gave me an opportunity to take charge and lead projects and people in creating art in a meaningful way," said Lisa. What was she up to before? "I was doing anti piracy litigation at 20th Century Fox before joining POWER UP. This brought me back to my filmmaking roots. It combines my art school background, my filmmaking background and my legal background giving me many different areas to be involved in."
And yes, she wants to direct some day, but the value of her current endeavors is very much on her mind. "We are challenging perception through film. It is the most powerful medium to create change," said Lisa.
Partners in volunteerism and in life, Stacy Codikow and Lisa Thrasher.
