Scope and Contents

This accretion includes production materials from Sarah G. Jacobson's independent film projects and freelance writing. The bulk of the material relates to Jacobson's professional career, primarily the production of her films Mary Jane's Not A Virgin Anymore and I Was A Teenage Serial Killer. These materials consist of notebooks, photographs, correspondence, 68 video recordings, and 8 born-digital CD-R's from her directing projects, as well as collections of Jacobson's published writing. Photography from the production of Mary Jane's Not A Virgin Anymore, multiple Sundance Film Festivals, and a launch party of a music video for the British punk band Fluffy are also present. Jacobson's freelance writing on modern film from 1995 to 1998 published in fanzines, underground film and music publications such as Filth and Film Threat, as well as commercial publications Sassy and YM represent her contributions to film journalism. In addition, this accretion includes classwork and notebooks from 1987 to 2004.
