• The women who produce the media: a podcast series

      Gross, Maxine K. (2019-05)
      In 2018, only 26% of the top 250 grossing films were produced by women. Still, there are statistically more women working as producers in the film industry than any other Above-the-Line position. Through a three part podcast series that includes interviews with six women working as Line Producers, Production Supervisors, and Executive Producers and a paper, The Women Who Produce the Media: A Podcast Series sheds light on the current state of the film industry in the wake of the #MeToo movement from the perspectives of women working in it. Organized through the lense of the past, present, and future of women in film. The Women Who Produce the Media: A Podcast series explores the intersection of the film industry and current women’s issues, along with setting out a solution for how to expand diversity among the film industry.
