Nothing like running into your ex and his date at the same cinema that is holding the official premiere of a film you worked on

There was almost an inverse proportion between our lack of money and the abundance of spirit in our crew and cast. Everything was done simply – not only because we didn’t have the budget but also because, artistically, everything needed to be honest, direct, and clear. From the rawness and vulnerability of our actors, to the presence of the natural environment. - James Schamus, producer; P.D. by Judy Becker

Leading figures in cinema are calling for steps to improve diversity in the industry as a damning study exposes the severe lack of women at all levels of film production over the past 20 years.
Figures seen by the Guardian have revealed that gender disparity is entrenched in the film industry, where more than three-quarters of the crew involved in making 2,000 of the biggest grossing films over the past 20 years have been men, while only 22% were women.
The report, compiled by the British producer and writer Stephen Follows, noted the gender of many employees, from make-up artists and animators to sound engineers and directors, who had worked on the 100 biggest box-office blockbusters each year since 1994.
The statistics, Follows decided, meant that he would “challenge anyone to read them and not feel that our industry has a problem with gender equality”.
In particular, the report found a notable gender split in film-making departments. Women made up a majority only in costume and wardrobe departments and casting, all of which, traditionally, have been perceived as feminine workplaces. Visual effects, usually the largest department for big feature films, had an average of only 17.5% of women, while music had just 16%, and camera and electricals were, on average, 95% male.
Even in creative areas men were found to dominate. The 2,000 films surveyed revealed that women accounted for only 13% of the editors, 10% of the writers and just 5% of the directors.
I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”
White privilege is never having to spell your last name.
