Former “All My Children” and “The Young and the Restless” actress Cady McClain (Dixie Martin, Kelly Andrews) has launched an Indiegogo campaign titled Seeing is Believing: Women Direct. After touring various film festivals for her two short films “Flip Fantasia” and “The World of Albert Fuh,” where McClain received an honorable mention for Best Director from the L.A. Film Review, the actress realized that women aren’t valued the same as men as directors. After much research, she has put together this documentary in order to help women everywhere and give them leadership skills and the tools needed to succeed in the business.

Of her documentary, McClain tells, “I’ve spent much of my life telling women’s stories as an actress. As the daytime drama medium has diminished in size, I realized I had to do something about the lack of respect and support for women’s voices in the larger media narrative. My goal for this documentary series is to help push the voices of female directors into the popular culture, and thereby establish women’s visions, perspective, and stories as an equally respected and valued part of the status quo.”
