There once was a scientist named Jane. She ran around in tropical forests and western mountains, trying to understand a fundamental building block of life: carbon.

Jane's science and teaching adventures led to one unexpected outcome, the realization that scientists have a very hard time showing and telling others what they do. Jane decided to do something about it.

She brought some talented filmmakers (who were scientists themselves!) to teach her students how to make short films about their research. One of the filmmakers was named Mo and Jane and Mo hit it off instantly. They talked about science and filmmaking and wondered why there weren't more female filmmakers in the world.

There was so much overlap between the challenges facing women scientists and women filmmakers. 

Thus, an idea was born. Enter Hey Girl Productions.
