Ashley Rogers Documentary

Hello friends and family of Ashley Rogers,

As many of you know I've been working on a documentary for Ashley, filming for the past months in Los Angeles, interviewing those she was closest to here. I'm so grateful for everyone's involvement thus far, it's been healing for me to hear stories, bond over Ashley-isms, and simply remind myself just how many lives she changed.

This film is going to paint her life as she wanted it. Her mountain of online content will be featured, music she wrote and performed, unreleased video and audio, and as a special homage to her taste, editing with songs and artists found on her Spotify playlists. About 11 minutes is done, an evening I spent with Ben Hauser. This is to show you the direction I'm heading, help describe the honesty and the space I'm hoping to fill.

At the end of 2017 I filmed in Virginia where she spent a lot of time and many best friends reside. I got to interview some of the Leesberg gang, Alexandria family, along with Dave Trachtenberg in Maryland. The last stage of filming was shot in October 2018, where I spent time with Ashley's mom, close friends, family, professors and students near Daytona. Still doing a couple last interviews, including filming Skype sessions for those who were unavailable during filming.

Continuing to edit and put together this story. It's been such a financial and emotional fight -- I'm so very grateful for your support.

Looking forward to sharing what we make together. 

With love,
Michael Foster

She makes broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walks with the universe on her shoulders and makes it look like a pair of wings. She is a whirlwind of crazy chaos but she is so damn passionate, that she is worth it. She loves life and it loves her right back. She belongs to no man or land. She is hers before she is anybody else's.
