Get Chicks Making Flicks

It’s our tagline but what does it mean?

Gender inequality is a big issue present within the film industry and can be attributed to a few factors. Mainly the sexism that has ingrained itself within the industry but also box office numbers, funding and serious lack of advertising and appreciation. All of these need to be changed and one way we can start to do this is by watching more films directed by amazing women, telling others about them and giving support to our female crew counterparts wherever we can.

Which is why I started this blog.

The Women’s Direction is a blog focused on giving the support needed for women film directors to bridge the inequality gap within the industry. Our posts vary from reviewing female directed films, providing more information about how to get started in the industry, as well as showcasing the work of some up and coming female directors.

The Eye-Opening & Honest Account of Making My First Ever Short Film

Third year university. Our last opportunity to make a film before semester was over. Each student was given the task of writing a 5 minute script with less than 20 something lines of dialogue.

The Woman Behind The Women’s Direction

McKenzee has always been a creator. Never enjoying any time where she wasn’t writing, singing, acting, making a film or generally pulling a story out of nothing and bringing it to life. McKenzee’s ultimate goal is being able to create and share stories with the world, and after discovering behind the scenes footage from her favourite movies it was decided that this would be her preferred avenue for doing so.

Since then she has acquired a Bachelor of Media, made video promos for theatre company’s, started and abandoned a Youtube channel, designed soundscapes for stage productions, made one short film, has fought with a half finished novel and started a blog tailored to bringing awareness to the gender disparity present within the film industry.

With an aim to go into film directing herself one day McKenzee began writing The Women’s Direction to not only create awareness but to hopefully add to the empowerment of other female filmmakers so as to end the gender inequality and pave the way for any other aspiring women like herself.
