I joke around sometimes and say that the DP [director of photography] is like a shrink for the director, but there's some truth in there.
You can't expect everything to happen all at once when it's been such a male-dominated world for so long.
My advice for other female directors: don't think of your gender as a handicap. Don't think about it at all. Just tell the best story you can, and don't stop until you do.
Don’t get hung up on the female thing. The art is not about that.
Definitely the biggest misconception is that it is overly burdensome to be a woman and pursue this line of work. But being a woman gives me a unique perspective and style, which is probably why I get the work that I do.
If you push too much for somebody that everyone knows is your friend, and that you've worked with before, it can backfire.
It's really the best time to be a woman. And instead it can be an advantage. Think about what you can bring to the table that what you have to offer that makes you unique.
I want people to think about what and who they have in their lives and then run home to hug them and tell them how much they love them.
