The documentary All’s Well and Fair (http://AllsWellAndFair.com), directed by +Luci Westphal, is an ongoing project started in 1996. The documentary juxtaposes the lives and ideals of 3 single punk rock moms and their children during the 1990s with their realities and opinions in 2006 and 2016 - giving a unique perspective on alternative culture, growth and identity.

The 1996 version was a short documentary. The 2006 version was released as an interactive web series in 19 episodes and as a stand-alone 90-minute film on DVD. The 2016 version wrapped up filming in July 2016. It is currently in post-production.

In this collection you will find photos from behind-the-scenes of making this documentary.

This quote from Tina (one of the three mothers in "All's Well and Fair") sums up what I'm trying to communicate with this project and why I think it's a worthwhile story to tell that may inspire others. Here is her full quote without my little edit:

"I think raising a child, raising a son, I just couldn't even imagine raising him any other way than just to say: look around you, look at what the women in your life have done and... yeah, it's not like... famous, it's not world-breaking, but they've tried to live honestly, raise their children so that they’re good people - while also trying to find some sort of fulfillment in their own lives... and very often have not had anyone else to rely on but themselves."

Side note: The photo used is of the supermoon at sunset seen from my hotel room during the All's Well and Fair shoot last summer.

xx Luci

It's happening! Tessa (in from Alaska) + +Luci Westphal (in from Colorado) are inside of Death or Glory #Tattoo in #Gainesville #Florida right now for Tessa to get our #AWF3 tattoo. The last of the adults from All's Well and Fair to get the tattoo.

The biggest THANK YOU to +scott solary for giving me the money to "just pay for" the remaining interview transcriptions. It's taken me months to do just a fraction. Now, within 24 hours, all the majority of interview transcripts are just rolling in via Rev.com (Thanks for the tip, +Bo Mehrad!). I can't explain what a huge difference this makes. But let's just say: I can finally start the actual video editing!
I am so grateful for Scott's support of my work - in all the ways and through all the years he's supported me.

Thank you, Scott, for carrying me when I couldn't quite do it alone - or not as well - or not as fast - or when it's just more fun with your support... like in this picture from spring 1996 when the filming of +All's Well and Fair began. And yes, you're officially the Executive Producer of All's Well and Fair III.

The last image recorded during the "2016 Gainesville" portion of our film seems especially poignant -not only because Cecil (boy on the left) has a real mustache now, but mainly because the next shoot will be all about Tessa (girl on the right) and her own baby... in the "2016 Alaska" portion.

The 3 moms at end of last interview. That they can still laugh after all the work is reason for film in 1st place.
