The feature documentary is Jamie’s personal, poignant, revelatory, hilarious, and joyful story told through video diary recordings and my filming.

Jamie is a brilliant engineer – she built the studios of Oxygen Media and Current TV – a photographer, former college professor, and home builder. Her story will be told through her video diaries and Roger Sherman’s shooting.
