Jane and Jere used to frequent lesbian bars in the West Village in Manhattan. Jane wrote some poems about these experiences and made a tissue-paper and magazine image collage for Jere of women in one of these bars. Heekyung used this collage as a starting point to animate a background for the reading of the Bar Poems.

Hsiao-wen designed the animation to go with Nini Lyon's reading of Jane's poem "Exorcism". The image of the house is based on an architect's maquette of the A-Frame house in Maine where Jane and Nini lived for a while.

Katerina designed the animation and effects for a story Jere Jacob told about Jane's last days, which we call the DeathVision animation. Katerina will also be designing some animated transitions for the film. Katerina started with some still black and white photographs that Nini Lyons took of Jane and Beth's house during Jane's illness.

A short film about the recording of "We're Nobody Yet," the theme song for Eight Faces of Jane.

Alys Hawkins designed three short clips that metaphorically refer to Jane's relationships with three different women: her mother, Nini, and her partner, Beth Allen. The images are based on doodles Jane made in her notebooks or in letters to her friends.
