Personal Quotes (2)

I'm new to sharing my comedic writing, so I've learned a lot with every script and video we've done so far. When you go from acting in other people's projects to producing your own from start to finish, you learn to let go of a lot of excess and tell the story in the most honest way.
We women know that we're more than the two dimensional, stereotypical female characters that are written into so much of the film and TV we see. Appealing to women means accepting the female viewpoint and not making it secondary, or cute, or angry, or naive, or purely sexual. Women observe the world with our eyes just as wide.
