Seeing is Believing: Women Direct

“Hiring a first-time director to work on a film might sound risky, but our analysis suggests that it actually doesn’t have much influence on the likelihood of a feature film being profitable.

While luck plays a part, producers and investors are generally fairly smart in selecting first-time directors, or at least in giving them the right budget to work with.

Overall, one thing is clear. Hiring a first-time director is not the kiss of death for any film.”

SO HIRE A FEMALE.

If you’ve watched Ava Duverney’s brilliant “When They See Us,” you’ll notice no depictions of rape. I really appreciated this because it is so central to the story of the Central Park jogger. Yet I didn’t miss it at all. I was grateful they didn’t show it.

This book prize is another way to support not using this trauma to drive tension in a narrative. I support it 100%.

Some interesting observations here. I celebrate his support of a female director coming back to her dream after kids.
