Renaissance Women Productions, a project of the Renaissance Foundation, has produced award-winning documentaries and shorts for the past 8 years using new, undiscovered talent, giving them the opportunity to break into the film industry. The interns that come through the program have produced everything from TV shows, to commercials, documentaries and educational films and now an award winning feature length movie, "Life Fine Tuned". The interns have been trained to do everything from writing scripts and narration to editing, filming, and staging. They are trained to be in front of the camera as well as behind and are even responsible for their own sound tracks with the projects they produce. It has been a great incubator for new talent, giving the ex-terns a chance to then be involved at a higher level on other for-profit productions.

Teen reviewer . . .

"I watched Life Fine Tuned and absolutely loved and recommend watching it. It is based on a girl who is famous and who only wants the glamorous things in life. She soon realizes after meeting a faith-based family, and herself being an accident, that life has more to it than the material things. She does a complete change during the film and realizes she should not only do for herself, but others. Overall, I think Life Fine Tuned was a great movie with a great lesson behind it." Ashlynn Keyser, age 15, 10th grade

review of life fine tuned

 "I can’t think of enough superlatives to describe Life Fine Tuned.The music is fantastic.   

 Victoria is perfect for the part.  I had tears in my eyes many times.  It is so beautiful, and it  highlighted perfectly all the wonderful qualities of life we enjoy in Virginia. I am certain everyone will stand up and cheer when you see this movie."
