2004 - Meals on Wheels

In the heat of the summer over 40 fearless WIFD members and professional friends shot the donated Meals on Wheels PSA.  The 35mm production was produced by Rebecca Rice, directed by Cynthia Salzman Mondell, UPM and AD'd by Fonya Naomi Mondell, shot by Steve McWilliams, James Russell - gaffer, and Devin Carbough - 2nd AD.

Dallas Film Professionals donated their time, creativity, and sweat to this PSA.  Other key crew included:  Michael Wohlfeld, Assistant Camera, Lindsay Perry & Yossi Cohen - Electric, Ryan Zammorron - Audio, Dee Chappell - Script Supervisor, Donatella Mascari - Makeup, Kalen Hoyle - Wardrobe, Lynne Moon - Art Direction, Traci Paga - Video Assist, Russ Coffman - behind-the-scenes video, Garry Potts - Still Photography, Bonnie Rundell - Scriptwriting, Shirley Abrams, Linda McAlister & Bonnie Rundell - Casting, Kathryn Yingling - Storyboard.   
MPS, James Russell, Bexel, Kodak, Tom Chapman (The Chapman Group), Dana Ronderos - DD Sedan Service, Tangi Spencer, Pam Gibbs &  Penny Anderly graciously donated production gear, film stock, limousine, catering, and the use of their home. A special thank-you to Lenora Whitehead for her help.

Twenty-five actors came out to lend their support along with nine young women PA's, many of whom are on their summer break from college, and even one high school student who's already been bitten by the film bug.

This PSA later went on to garner the 2006 Gracie Allen Award, which recognizes exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of electronic media.
