Cutters, Behind the Scenes, Commercial

Yet another photo from NYC

I know that I've already posted this photo... but goodstory films posted all the position of the women who worked on this commercial. 

Now here is where I'll talk about women filmmakers. There isn't a shortage of us - and the amount of women filmmakers does not reflect the industry. Here are some statistics:

  • Women accounted for 16% of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors. - Celluloid Ceiling 2013 Report
     
  • Women accounted for 10% of writers, 15% of executive producers, 17% of editors, 3% of cinematographers, and 25% of producers working on the top 250 domestic grossing films of 2013. - Celluloid Ceiling 2013 Report
     
  • Women comprised 6% of all directors working on the top 250 films of 2013. This represents a decrease of 3 percentage points from 2012 and 1998. - Celluloid Ceiling 2013 Report
     
  • A historical comparison of women’s employment on the top 250 films in 2013 and 2012 reveals that the percentages of women directors, writers, executive producers, and editors have declined. The percentage of women producers has remained the same. Celluloid Ceiling 2013 Report
     
  • In Academy Award history, four female filmmakers have been nominated for best director (Lina Wertmuller-1977, Jane Campion-1994, and Sofia Coppola-2004, Kathryn Bigelow - 2010), but only Kathryn has won.

  • Women support women. Films directed by women feature more women in all roles. There is a 21% increase in women working on a narrative film when there is a female director and a 24% of women working on documentaries. - Indiewire
     
  • Females direct more documentaries than narrative films – 34.5% vs 16.9%.  

Its some interesting statistics on their own. But here is the commercial that we all gathered together to create:
