Ep 607: Naomi McDougall Jones

Apr 03, 2020

[6 mins. 50 secs.] The actor, filmmaker and author of the newly published book "The Wrong Kind of Women: Inside Our Revolution to Dismantle the Gods of Hollywood", Naomi Jones McDougall is the guest. Informed by the journey of her own career; by interviews with others throughout the film industry; and by cold, hard data, Jones deconstructs the casual, commonplace sexism rampant in Hollywood that has kept women out of key roles for decades. Next, she shows us the growing women-driven revolution in filmmaking—sparked by streaming services, crumbling distribution models, direct-to-audience access via innovative online platforms, and outside advocacy groups—which has enabled women to build careers outside the traditional studio system. Finally, she makes a business case for financing and producing films by female filmmakers. Purchase a copy of Naomi's book here!here.
