Harriet’s Video of the Day

Raves, Rants, Reviews

“So enjoying your CD. I love the way you write and deliver a song. What a gift. Thank you so much for being in the world to tell us these stories through song.” — Nita Whitaker LaFontaine

“Your music and songwriting have inspired me to become the person I am today.” — Alexzandra, Stockholm, Sweden

“Just wanted to say I enjoyed your CD concert immensely. Your tender, sensitive and spontaneous rendition of all your material was a remarkable example of your rare talents. A real treat for me.” — Dana White

“Lada and I wish to Congratulate you on the Awesome Lyrics for the StarKey Song! We were overcome with JOY hearing you sing the special words you chose. You’re truly Wonderful, Harriet!” — Matthew and Lada

“In Yiddish theatre, which is referenced in the play we do together, audience members were told they could get their money back if they didn’t both laugh and cry at the performance. No one would have asked for their money back after your CD release concert.” — David Proval

“The listener is allowed into deeply personal-universal places and leaves with greater understandings of him/her-self as well as you and the subjects you write about. You really love people, and that's very cool!” — Leslie Welles

“Harriet’s a brilliant comedian who introduces each of her songs with a hilarious, bracingly honest back story that gives the people in the dark a little insight on how great songs are created.” — Julie Davis

“It’s really brilliant how you came up with these [songwriting] steps. Just a great, GREAT, idea.” — Denise Rosier

“Even stronger than my desire to write songs is my gratitude to be able to work on it at this point in my life. You have kept me going and are the best teacher I ever had or will have.” — Marian Weiner

“I learned that my most powerful songs truly do come from my real life experiences and that when I share my feelings, in song, I am able to heal myself.” — Cynthia Land

Film Completion Update from HOLLYWOOD TOWN – The Harriet Schock Story

Thanks to the many wonderful friends and fans of HARRIET SCHOCK, the production of a feature-length documentary about this renowned Songwriter/Recording Artist, has been successfully crowd-funded on Indiegogo.com. The marvels of Harriet, her life, her career and her music are now in a form that can be experienced anywhere and everywhere.

In December 2023, there was a preview screening of HOLLYWOOD TOWN – The Harriet Schock Story. Captured in the above short Video, are comments about the film from members of the audience. WATCH IT to get a sense of the quality and effectiveness of what we as a group have created, for it could not have been done without your help.


It was thought that there would be sufficient funding in the PHASE 4 campaign to finish AND market the film. Anyone familiar with filmmaking will not be surprised to learn that the finishing process was more costly and time-consuming than projected. The very good news is that the needed work was done and, judging by the comments in the video above, the finished film is excellent!

But it’s not enough to just make a film. If it’s not well marketed, no one will see it! That’s why the promotional budget for some motion pictures can often approach the cost of producing it.

And so, to get the film widely seen and appreciated, one final campaign is necessary to cover the time and costs of MARKETING, including participation in FILM FESTIVALS. The better this is done, the better the chances for WIDESPREAD DISTRIBUTION, which is the goal.


Researching and entering the right FILM FESTIVALS is a big part of the MARKETING Phase. Festivals are where FILM DISTRIBUTORS and FILM OUTLETS discover new films. Besides the research time, there are costs involved, such as entry fees, and there is the possibility of travel to particular festivals where our presence there could positively affect the outcome.

What we are looking to accomplish by having the film shown at festivals is to garner AWARDS, REVIEWS and other forms of RECOGNITION that attract the interest of distributors.

There are now dozens of STREAMING CHANNELS–Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Roku, etc.–some of which could be potential outlets for a film such as this.

We will be searching for professionals in the film distribution field; people who know the who, what, where of this business; people who can assist us in finding the best markets and who can open doors to effective distribution.

And so, with something of great quality in hand, we ask you once more to help us move forward with PHASE 5, to get HOLLYWOOD TOWN – The Harriet Schock Story, WIDELY KNOWN OF AND SEEN!
