Today I met with Dale Corlett who is the Head of Talent Development at the New Zealand Film Commission in Wellington. Dale and I got to know each other a bit better and talked about the current projects I am working on as well as funding initiatives that may apply to myself as a professional as well as my up and coming project 'Kiwis Can Fly'. He gave me some great insight about the current state of the film industry and the lack of female directors and producers right now. It was really encouraging and insightful to talk to someone who has a very realistic advice about how to get to where I want to be. The team at the New Zealand Film Commission are truly amazing and I would definately recommend getting in touch with them if you are an aspiring director or producer.
