Over the last month I've had the pleasure of working on a short film called Donuts. It was such a blast to work on, and not just because I was "forced" to eat copious amounts of donuts.
One of the most exciting things about the shoot was that it had a nearly all-female crew. If you don't work in the film industry, you might not realize how rare it is. (Check out these statistics from Women In Film). It may seem like a small triumph, but it's pretty exciting. In my nearly two decades of working professionally, I've never been on a set that had a majority of the crew be female. And, as a story about two women coming together, it just felt right.
Here's is to more projects helmed by amazing women! And also more opportunities to eat donuts in the name of art...
