Naomi laments the complete lack of women represented in the directing, editing, and writing categories of this year’s Oscars and talks about why, despite 50% of film school graduates being women, that women only direct 18% of even micro-budget films. She explores the ways in which women themselves can work to improve that number.
Interview: Marilyn Chinitz, a lawyer at Blank Rome, who talks about the art of negotiation and gives Naomi tips about the ways in which artists, and particularly female artists, can learn to better fight for themselves.
Favorite Thing This Week: Manic Pixie Dream Wife – a hysterical web series by M Elizabeth Eller that addresses the question of what your life would actually become if you were to actually marry a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
As always, the work of this podcast is for Naomi to help you and herself crack the nut of how to have a life as an artist and entrepreneur, so if you have stories to share from your own life – successes, failures, times you learned something – or if you have a question you would like Naomi to answer or find the answer to or a person you would like her to interview – send them all her way.
