This site started as a result of my creation of the Women Rocking Hollywood at SDCC, or Comic-Con International: San Diego. The origin was, "I've done panels before on subjects I know and want to shine a spotlight on, why not shine a light on women changing the status quo in Hollywood? With SDCC 2016, we will have introduced our inaugural Women Rocking Hollywood panel! (see "Comic-Con Panel" heading for more info, and be aware that the video of that panel will be shown on this site!)
It’s true that women and their position in the pecking order in Hollywood have been much in the news of late. It’s amazing to see the groundswell, the attention, and the realignment happening in the movie industry. Women representing 50 percent of the film directors and creatives, as well as women in front of the camera being paid equally for their work, talent, and star power will only enhance the body of work being left for film historians and movie lovers…shift happens, and it’s happening now. So many powerful, talented women are at the forefront of changing Hollywood from the inside. As creatives, directors, and producers, they are breaking box office records and showing Hollywood altering the status-quo just makes for better movies.
They are about working to bring equality to tinsel town, and I am about helping them any way I can. Here on Women Rocking Hollywood, I hope to highlight those doing good work in support of these changes, as well as those actually doing the craft. As Cinema Siren, and in my work with Animation Scoop, I'll be posting interviews and articles about women in film and animation, as well as putting links, articles, and anything else I can post that enlightens those looking to help create a better world for all artists working in cinema.
