The first entry in the Butch Hunt video contest has just been submitted, by Max in Los Angeles.
I’m blown away by how perfectly she nailed the feel of the character and the novel with her entry. The sense of place, the cocky, sexy attitude but also the sense of humor and fun. She tips a hat (literally) to the 50s but it still reads as modern.
I found Max through her blog, which was recommended to me by one of the butches in my own Butch Hunt video from Dyke Day LA. When I contacted her, I told her I wanted her own take on the character and that she was free to express her own personality and style. She nailed it. I couldn’t have done better if I had been directing her myself.
In light of this awesomeness, I’ve decided to extend the deadline for the contest. Deets here. Assuming I get at least one more entry, I’ll set up a poll to vote for the face of Butch Fatale right here on this blog. Stay tuned, Faustketeers…
