Had the pleasure of working with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for their Academy Dialogues as their Videographer here in Vancouver. I had the amazing opportunity to film Laura Karpman during her discussion with Anita Hill, Geena Davis Alma Har’el and Karen Rupert Toliver. This is a fascinating talk about Gender Equality in Film and Television today and how much further we need to go. A must watch. For any of your zoom meetings and videography needs contact us for your next project. Here is some more info about the project.
Anita Hill (subject of “Anita: Speaking Truth to Power”), chair of the Hollywood Commission and professor at Brandeis University, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, moderates this conversation with Oscar-winning actor Geena Davis (“A League of Their Own”), award-winning filmmaker Alma Har’el (“Honey Boy”), Academy governor and composer Laura Karpman (“Lovecraft Country”), and EVP Creative for Sony Pictures Animation and Oscar-winning producer Karen Rupert Toliver (“Hair Love”) about their personal journey to becoming agents of change. In their discussion, they explore how women of all ages see themselves depicted in the far-reaching world of movies, and how to bring more role models on screen and behind the camera. This Academy Dialogue dives into what true equity and inclusion means, how it will inevitably lead to a safer work environment and how to normalize and amplify female leadership and empowerment.
