My mum’s friends at work are having a baby and their last name is watts so they were trying work out a name for it, i suggested 60 and they both looked confused so i said maybe 20 would suit them better

Okay everyone here’s the deal. I have this film project for my major that has to go for 1-2 minutes and my idea for it is “Things I Wanted to Say But Never Did”. That’s where I need your help.

In order for it to work, I need confessions. Anonymously or not, send me things…

I saw your video on women in film and resented some of the comments made. Yes women may not be getting a fair go but it's also down to the fact that there just aren't enough women trying. Films made by men are going to be told through the eyes of a male protagonist because that's what the directors vision is and he can't help that. Just the same as films directed by women will feature strong women leads (Zero Dark Thirty) but I honestly think that women have never been stronger in films.

I’m sorry, this ask sounds like a certain conclusion in a certain episode of a certain youtube documentary. It is not that there aren’t enough women trying. There are SO MANY WOMEN TRYING. There are SO MANY WOMEN DOING AMAZING WORK. But they do not have the support or even the equal playing field of the working environment in which they are trying to operate. You just have to read the comments of the video to see that.

this. EXACTLY THIS. There are plenty of women trying, and of those that are ‘succeeding’ they’re not all making films with strong women leads - if you’re going to talk Zero Dark Thirty, you’re talking about Kathryn Bigelow who directed The Hurt Locker and Point Break. Not exactly films featuring the strong female lead trope.

Female stories shouldn’t be up to female creators, because they are human stories. 

On one hand, women are told that the opportunities are there if we really wanted them or if we really tried. On the other hand we are told that we are only allowed to tell one very narrow type of story, that is, stories of female triumph, and it doesn’t matter if we tell the greatest story of female triumph, because a film that tells that story makes no money anyway.

And those women who break the mold, those who tell stories that people wouldn’t expect to be told by a ‘female filmmaker’ - well no one even remembers that it was a film made by a woman.

Things like this piss me off. You are disrespecting the women who are working their ass off just to get a fraction of what men get for the same quality of work. You are also preventing anyone from being able to fix the problem, because you are trying to convince everyone around you that the problem literally does not exist.
