Interview: Naomi talks with Greta McAnany and Lauren Tracy, founders of Blue Fevr (Netflix for Millennial Women) about their exciting new start-up, the challenges/successes they’ve experienced so far, and why they think a whole new platform is necessary to create a better eco-system for female filmmakers. If you are a female filmmaker (or really any filmmaker), producer, or anyone who is thinking about how and why people are watching content, this interview is a must-listen.

Favorite Thing This Week: Jessica Chastain calling out the Cannes Film Festival about its poor representation of women while on the judge panel for the Cannes Film Festival. It’s one thing to talk about this issue in pre-designated “women in film” spaces and quite another to speak truth to power when you are the guest of that power. JC, you are an inspiration. Keep going for those dragons. You can read more and watch her statement HERE.
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.
