a message from our founders
Three days prior to the first day of freshman year two girls with strikingly similar names, who would immediately be confused as one another, met. One seemed overly friendly and the other overly over it, but throughout college found themselves somewhere in between. Despite similarities and differences, the two formed an inseperable bond. They’ve lived together, traveled together, fought together, worked together, and now live in Brooklyn! Not together, but pretty close.
Irritated by countless auditions for wives, sisters, mothers, girlfriends, daughters, prostitutes and other nameless female characters (with no dialogue, but at least topless nudity), and disheartened by the lack of inspiring opportunity for the talented young professionals in their community, they got together to do what they do best: eat Chinese food and complain. That night, with a decision that was just shy of crazy, and certainly ambitious, 3DaysPrior was born.
They quickly went to work and reached out to the best and brightest in the biz (their immediate circle), to form a creative board of multidisciplinary artists and thinkers. Their current, predominantly female creative team aims to do work that matters now: that’s funny, that’s feminist, that’s multifaceted, that pushes the envelope, and that struggling, young artists want to see. Above all else, they want to create a collaborative environment where passion projects are encouraged and where the intersection of curiosity and humanity is at the heart of everything they do.
