I started 2018 re-entering the film business as a Cinematographer with no current content for a reel. I’m closing 2018 having shot 5 projects and prepping for another shoot January 6, 2019. Every single project came from people I met thru WIM.
Women in Media is a great group. Very active in creating change. I always come away from events they organize or co-organize having had a great experience.
I've met some of my greatest friends and closest collaborators at Women In Media events. I love the enthusiasm for our industry as well as the insistence that we can all do better - together.
So often in our industry, it's "who you know" that gets you opportunities, and Women in Media helps you grow a solid network of professionals that are interested in improving the gender gap in media production. It also provides opportunities to enter into festivals and network with some of the greatest. I'm really proud to be a part of Women in Media.
I would definitely recommend WIM for the full calendar of interesting industry events, networking, the hire these women focalizing which is excellent, for all the hard work Tema and her staff put in to promoting our visibility and hirability as female filmmakers, and definitely for the opportunity to take part in training courses such as this (DaVinci Resolve 15). Also the feeling of professional support is really valuable.
Out of many organizations that support female minority in the entertainment industry WIM is the one that really does things in the right way. It gathers the right kind of professionals, helps forming successful relationships among them and creates actual work opportunities for many women! I really feel like WIM is a place for me!!
I have never felt so highly "in demand" until I joined the WIM Crew List. It shifted my slow non-union career as a Freelance Producer/AD into the fast lane. It's great to have such an effective resource for work and fellowship. The WIM group has kept me informed and motivated with all of the events, news and success of its members.
I don't really care about a person's gender when I choose to work with them, but I come to Women In Media networking events because there are SO MANY talented passionate skilled people there.
Women in Media is an amazing resource for connecting and inspiring women while opening its arms to all genders. The organisation is driven and motivated to pull people together which I highly respect and will always support. WIM has fantastic events if you are an aspiring or seasoned filmmaker, actor, writer or director.
At the Women In Media mixer that I attended in the San Francisco Bay Area, I met some key people that enabled me to shoot the new pitch reel for my show. From these new connections, I met even more film professionals in their networks of all genders and ethnicities. It really is "who you know," and the events that Women In Media does have been essential to moving my projects forward!
I pledge to interview at parity with commitment to hire inclusively above and below the line.
I will actively seek out women to hire from outside my circle and other resources if necessary.
I will recommend women I respect to others in a position to hire.
I will pay equitably and create an atmosphere of respect for all cast and crew.
