Why did you decide to get into this indu

Why did you decide to get into this industry? Going way, way, way, way back to when I was a little girl, I told my parents I wanted to be a paleontologist. I was told a paleontologist needed to know a lot of math. My grades in math were not very good. So, I told my parents, “I want to be an actress!” And my parents said, “no, absolutely not. You will end up waiting tables. Do you want to wait tables?” I said, “no, I don’t want to wait tables. I will be a broadcast journalist and millions of people across the United States will see my face before they go to bed.” That was all well and good until I started pursuing journalism and realized I didn’t want to be put in a position where people were calling me up after the broadcast and telling me I should have worn a pink sweater, or, you need to cut your hair by two inches. It really wasn’t me. And, furthermore, working in local journalism wasn’t quite the Woodward and Bernstein investigative experience I thought it would be. I decided to go back to school and go to Chapman University to study Documentary filmmaking. But there wasn’t a graduate program for Documentary so I ended up in cinematography. And through the course of that I realized that I really wasn’t as passionate about documentary filmmaking as I had been at one point in my life. Really what I was watching were narrative films. So, it’s really been an ongoing evolution of what has led me to this place and pursuing what it is that I like to do with my free time and what I can do to get paid for it. #thereelwomen #girlboss #women #womenoflight #picoftheday #photooftheday #women #female #love #film #television #TV #media #art #FilmEquality #womeninfilm #femalefilmmakers #empoweringwomen #womenempower #betterhollywood #womendirect #girl #movies #movielover #create #me #happy #ladyboss #bosslady #girlgang http://ow.ly/i/hVpZJ
