Sample Clips Edited or Animated by Monica Nolan

Monica used to edit movies. Below are samples from projects she felt pretty good about. (Click on the still for each to view the sample clip.)
Christine in the Cutting Room, a work-in-progress. Susan Stryker directs this experimental documentary examining Christine Jorgenson's sex change and subsequent celebrity.
Forever's Gonna Start Tonight (2009) Still going strong in her 70's, transgender performer Vicki Marlane recounts the ups and downs of her amazing life. Directed by Michelle Lawler. Forever won the audience award for Outstanding Documentary Feature at LA's Outfest.
Bachelorette, 34 (2007) Kara Herold's documentary concerns "one woman's examination of the ubiquitous belief that marriage equals happiness." The opening credit sequence was created primarily with Photoshop and After Effects, and reflects the documentary's found footage aesthetic. Premiered IDFA.
Grrlyshow (2000) A film about women who make zines, this film combines found footage, interviews, zine images, and a pseudo how-to movie within the movie. Directed by Kara Herold, premiered Sundance, distributed by Women Make Movies.
World of Women (1995) Monica's graduate school project, written, directed, and edited (on a flatbed) by her, demonstrates that she has always been fascinated by lesbian pulp. Cathy Crane did the lovely noir-homage camera work.
