Truth. Grit. Heart.
Stories to Light the World.


Burly Mermaid started with a vision:
to provide true stories from a woman's point of view.

2017 pushed us to expand our vision:
to give real life stories a place to be told from a fresh point of view.

As always, our goal is to expand the visual vocabulary,
the ways in which stories can be and are told.

It's simple, and it's not.

The Key: Digging deep to tell a story beautifully. Real. With power and grace.

Company founder, Ella Swift Redding,
is the powerhouse at the center of our story.
Her work in the media and entertainment industries
spans 17 years and three continents.

A wild ride full of adventure, heartbreak,
salty dogs, sexy food, detours and magic.
Drawing her and our growing tribe into the world of right now.

A world that needs our mission more than ever.

Thank you for becoming a part of this mission.
Every little (& big!) contribution helps us all swim closer
toward that spectacular horizon called Dreams Realized.

Goals
$21 of $4,000 per month
HELP US SHARE MORE STORIES!
Our Homespun Web Doc Series "Portrait of a Femme" -- shot almost entirely with an iPhone SE -- is just the beginning!! Look what we made with just $300 (+ buckets of time, patience, humility & community love)!!

Splashing a few clams our way each month will help raise our budgetary tide, allowing us to maintain and purchase small equipment needs, cover our basic operating expenses, and give us some breathing room to develop, create and share even MORE amazing stories of Truth, Grit & Heart.

We have a bunch in our quiver, ready to rocket into the world. All we need is your support to help light these tales aflame.

Let's to help make our world a better place. Now.

THANK YOU!!
GRACIAS!!
MERCI!!
TAKK!!
DANKE!!
