MEDIA MOGUL IN TRAINING
CEO, JYNX PRODUCTIONS
What do you love about your work?
The thing I love most about my work is working with the great team at Jynx Productions. They firmly believe if we can imagine it, we can make it. And I am so on board with that spirit.
What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?
I’d like to see many more women wielding the purse strings and using that power to actively support more women in the industry.
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?
Women who own their power and know how to wield it will create a jet stream that will pull other women along. Find the women who wield the power in your own circles and support her! Raise her up, put her forward, introduce her to everyone. Listen to her speak, buy what she is selling… be loyal and she will lift you up with her. Then, when you rise, you will carry even more with you! It’s a chain reaction.
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
Speak loudly with your most confident voice. People will listen. If they don’t SPEAK LOUDER
Which women in the New England region inspire you?
Heroine du jour: Janet Mills, 75th Governor of Maine
What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?
Jane Campion – The Power of the Dog. It’s slated for release in 2021, but the longer the wait, the sweeter the fruit.
Attending any film festivals or events?
We are working on a labor of love documentary that we hope to see spinning in the festival circuit, and I’m making the content market rounds. We have a bouquet of shows we are pitching and we are all over it.
How can your fans find you!?
