From intimacy scenes to industry tips, our fun feminist film chat went down a treat at Latitude Festival’s The Listening Post in July 2021. We were ecstatic to be back on stage for the first time since March 2020!
First, Kerry chats to Anna about her directorial debut Topping Out and the short film’s unique depiction of male vulnerability. She further discusses the challenges of filming on scaffolding, explains the importance of the focus puller, and recalls working with director Jane Campion. They have an interesting discussion about the negatively gendered use of the word “difficult”. From Intimacy (2001) to Rare Beasts (2021), keep listening to hear more about Kerry’s acting experiences.
Next, our Assistant Producer and occasional Audio Producer Elliana joins Kerry and Anna on stage. She discusses being a young woman trying to break into the film and tv industries, and offers an insight into the inner workings of the Girls On Film podcast over the past year. Stay tuned for tips from both Elliana and Kerry on entering the industry.
