In honor of Women’s History Month 2018, emotion kicked off a “Women on Set” series of shorts.
Women are fairly well represented on sets as make-up artists, script-supervisors, and editors, and while these jobs aren’t easy of course, women are equally capable of being dolly grips, gaffers, directors, sound engineers, and more, and they don’t tend to get offered those jobs as often.
We here at emotion have met a lot of incredible women over the years who have challenged and continue to challenge the status quo and we think it’s important to shine a light on them: the directors and sound engineers that have been female pioneers in their field, the cinematographers and gaffers who pursued their passion with full force despite having few or no role models, the dolly grips and first assistant directors who persevered.
The series features veterans and rookies of the industry as they talk about why they love their craft, and how they feel about the industry as women in their respective fields.
This is our first. We’re proud to present Annie Spiegelman, AD.
