Whitney started a film journal in 2001. She took all of the notes she'd scribbled on scrap pieces of paper, napkins, and drink coasters, and organized them into specific sections in a red, three ring binder. The journal has followed Whitney all over the United States and Europe.
It is the perfect symbol of Whitney's allegiance and preoccupation with filmmaking.

"Contributive, not competitive" "Promising - but - unproven"
