Is there anything Cady McClain can’t do? She’s a Daytime Emmy-winning actress beloved by fans for her roles as Dixie All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless, but she is also a writer, producer, and director.
As her social media followers have seen over the last year, Cady has been developing a documentary series on women director’s and has traveled the world to interview and feature some of the best of the best as part of her series concept, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct.
McClain’s subjects for the project include: Sarah Gavron (Suffragate), Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland), Bethany Rooney (Pretty Little Liars), Joanna Kerns (Crazy Ex Girlfriend), Betty Thomas (The Brady Bunch Movie, and Dr. Doolittle), and yes, former GH star and director, Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH and director, Pretty Little Liars), plus countless other unbelievably talented individuals.
And speaking of McCullough, she also part of the producing team of Seeing Is Believing: Women Direct, along with Cady’s husband, GH star Jon Lindstrom (Kevin), plus Kate Super and Amanda Quinn Olivar.
McClain hopes her documentary series will inspire a dialog where there will no longer be a delination between male and female directors, so everyone will be called a “director” no matter what their gender, if this is their chosen profession behind the camera. As McClain and others point out, women directors deliver some of the most powerful and memorable work in this highly visionary and creative job that is predominately dominated by men.
Currently, Cady is looking for funding to complete her passion project via an IndieGoGo Campaign that has been set up and has already raised over $26,000 plus. She is looking to get to $50,000 within the next two months. According to her video pitch for her campaign and series, there are some definite fun perks for fans who want to get in on the action, and help support McClain and her team!
