The design goal for our movie poster was to express a feeling of optimism. We were mindful to weave in brighter shading from the Pioneer green spectrum into the background so you felt the hope the film brings. The poster design also reflects the movie’s message: You Are Not Alone.

Pioneers in Skirts is a feature documentary with an engaging examination of gender parity in our culture from the perspective of a female filmmaker who was frustrated with her own problems in the film industry.
Not finding many answers within her profession, she decides to expand her search to include other industries and society in general.
In an inspiring portrait of perseverance and determination, director Ashley Maria not only shares her own story, but she follows the journey of 3 girls on a robotic team, their fathers, as well as a young mother – all while traveling the U.S., speaking to fellow pioneering women and topic experts who had solutions to share.
By the end of her quest, Ashley finds out how we ALL can address the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.
