Why don’t we have more DoPs in New Zealand?
Women make fantastic cinematographers and yet currently we only have 3 in NZ. Ginny Loane, Jac Fitzgerald and Mairi Gunn will talk about their experinces as DoPs, answer your questions and engage you in a discussion about women as DoPs and what challenges come with the profession.
We are looking forward to an energetic discussion, interesting tales and pearls of wisdom from our 3 guest speakers and we hope it might entice you to take on the challenge and consider a career as a DoP.
We would also like to explore what’s stopping women who currently work in the other camera jobs from progressing on to shoot ie: from Clapper Loader to Assist to operator to DOP seems to bring a big drop off in numbers.
Are the Camera assist jobs becoming more ‘techy’ and is this perception driving women away from even the starting crew positions?
