Flicka 3 // Women in Tech

An event to discuss what it's like to be a woman working in the tech departments of our industry. We know that of all features released last year in Aus, only 16% were directed by women. But how many were shot by women? (A: probably only a handful and probably only documentary)

For all women interested in working in camera, sound, lighting, but also post-prod male dominated areas: editors, animators, and VFX artists - join us for a good discussion on how we can change these stars and where it should start.

Joining us will be cinematographers Felicia Smith, Madison Pelzer, and Rebeka Arnot, who all work at Vision House and all have a range of experience DPing from short films to music videos to commercial work to television. Joining us as well will be Sky Davies, who has DP'd and camera op'd on plenty of features, both fiction and documentary, and is super passionate about encouraging women to move into tech fields. 

Let's talk about the myths that people believe ("men can carry heavier gear") to the downright ridiculous comments ("women are only good with lenses because they're more maternal**").

Bring drinks + snacks!
