Because it has been so long since I have attempted this....things may look a little messed up for a bit. hopefully not too long

News-- a new project

Kimberly Peirce to direct The Brand

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Pictures and article about  2013 Women of Action summit at DGA (Mar 2 2013)  at the link below

The second panel, Making the Choice for Change, offered the thoughts of directors Valerie Faris (Ruby Sparks), Victoria Hochberg (Sex & The City), Mary Lambert (Mega Python vs. Gatoroid), Lynne Littman (Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years), Freida Mock (Anita), Jennifer Siebel Newsom (Miss Representation), and Kimberly Peirce (Carrie); Sundance Institute Executive Director Keri Putnam; and Mandalay Pictures President Cathy Schulman in a conversation that looked for solutions that might bring about needed changes in the industry. Director Penelope Spheeris (Five, “Cheyanne”) served as the moderator of this lively dialogue.
One subject discussed was the possibility of creating a change in attitudes by bringing to light some of the hidden aspects of hiring practices. “Right now we know that in the system jobs go around, but you never know what jobs are out there, or who’s on that list unless your agent tells you. But I bet you most of those lists don’t have women on them,” said Peirce. “Hiring practices are very insular in the agency system.  We’re not going to change anything overnight, but in terms of a paradigm shift, can’t we start making that stuff more public? At least give us a shot in the room. If we don’t get that job, we’re going to get another job. So I think the first thing is to open up the hiring practices and give us our shot.”

Release date - Carrie

This is exciting news. They have set a release date for Carrie. It will be March 15 2012. (Which happens to be the day before my birthday). But it is less than a year away, so that is good news. I am very much looking forward to this. And I guess I need to add a "Carrie" Section on the left side of my site. I hope I remember how to do that.
