Danielle Katvan is making a film about a female truck driver and she’s looking for a driver to ride along with as part of her research.

Katvan is looking for a female driver from the San Francisco area who would be willing to allow Katvan and a camera person to shadow her. The goal of the ride-along would be for them to learn more about what it’s like to be a woman in trucking, as well as to take some test shots for filmmaking purposes.

“I’m writing my first feature film and the protagonist of the film is a female truck driver, so what I want to do is do a little bit of research and just ride along with someone who is an experienced driver and bring my camera guy along to get some mood footage of a driver out on the road and what that’s like and what her work is like,” Katvan said.

Drivers interested in participating should contact Katvan at Drivers should include information about the kind of trucking they do as well as a photograph of themselves, if they have one. Katvan will share the footage with the driver after the ride-along.
