The Project

With the Wind and the Stars is a 360 documentary series that celebrates the stories of women in aviation and aerospace. It exists to uplift and inspire audiences to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams. Episode 1 premiered in 2020 on International Women's Day. Episode 2 and 3 are currently in production and slated for release in summer of 2023.

The Process

Rachel has collaborated with The Ninety-Nines, Women in Aviation International, and Airway Science for Kids to create the episodes in the series. Through these organizations, she meets the subjects and begins crafting the story for each film. Rachel and her team then produce, film, and edit the episodes. Episode 1 was funded through a series of grants and generous support by NW Documentary and 360 Labs. The film screened at NW Documentary and included an in-person meeting of a local Ninety-Nines chapter. This allowed viewers to meet women in aviation after watching the VR film. It is regularly featured by Meta and has been shown at many VR film festivals.
