More personal stories about what it’s like working with men (and women) in this crazy business, and the lessons studios can learn.
Do women sometimes hinder other women from advancing in the industry? What are the privileges that men have in the industry, regardless of race? What is the benefits for studios to hire women and/or people of color? These topics and more are part of this episode of the “Breaking the Glass” film series.
About the Series
“Breaking the Glass” is a short film docu-series from the filmmaking podcast “Radio Film School,” a production of Dare Dreamer FM (daredreamer.fm/breakingtheglass). We gathered a panel of women in film and television to discuss stories of gender, race, and what it takes to make it in the film and television industry.
