Doing my part to close the gender gap in entertainment media. You can thank me later.
I am happy and proud to announce that I am one of 8 women selected to participate in the 2010 AFI Directing Workshop for Women. This is truly an honor, and I am beyond excited to study at such a prestigious institution, as part of such a competitive program, with such an awesome and talented group of ladies.
Katherine Bigelow knocked down one wall, and maybe someday I will knock down another. Like maybe I'll win something for making a movie with actual women in it? Imagine! Of course, I would be happy with one of those fake Oscars you get on Hollywood Blvd that says "Best Sister-in-Law", and a gift certificate to In'n'Out burger. I like to set small goals.
Until then, I'm off to direct my short film for the American Film Institute. Woo-hoo!
