Often I pretended to a cameraman to know less than I did. That way I got more cooperation.
Keeping a feminine approach is vital - men hate bossy females.
I'd love to see more women working as directors and producers.
Today it's almost impossible to do it unless you are an actress or writer with power... I wouldn't hesitate right this minute to hire a talented woman if the subject matter were right.
Any woman who wishes to smash into the world of men isn't very feminine.
