Sold Out - Waitlist Available

Hollywood is moving fast to include more womxn in front of and behind the camera, which gives writers a chance to be powerful agents of change. This year, 60% of TV mandates demand female-forward content, and 40% of blockbusters have a female lead. Writers should understand what it means to center female stories and be able to create dynamic female characters for both lead and supporting roles.

Entertainment shapes culture, so let's put our power to good use!

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Male/Female Gaze
  • Dynamic characterization 
  • Representation 
  • Live Q&A 

 

About Your Host

Misha Calvert is an award-winning show creator with projects spanning film, TV, theater, and digital. After being invited into the Tribeca Digital Creators Market, Misha was commissioned to create a new comedy series for BRIC TV entitled All Hail Beth which had its soundtrack debut at #25 on the iTunes Charts. A semi-finalist for the Sundance/YouTube New Voices Lab from 2016-2018 and current finalist for the 2021 Sundance Episodic Lab, Misha has screened at festivals around the world for her digital series Strut, Textual Intercourse, and Step Into My Office.

Her Off-Broadway writer/director credits include three Chekhovian satires set in a 1980’s high school, and the original comedy A Seagull is Born. Misha first achieved notoriety as an experimental performance artist, where she garnered a great deal of press for her media manipulation and public satires, most notably Re-Virginization, The Mister and Miss Williamsburg Pageant, and the Bob Ross-themed fundraiser Beat the Devil Out of It which raised money for inner city art students.
