Take Two: Not Enough Women Calling the Shots

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Trista with @Large Films, Inc., a commercial production company here in Portland, Oregon. She wanted me to consider interviewing her boss on an upcoming Bread and Roses show, which airs Friday nights at 6pm on KBOO 90.7FM. I couldn't commit right away as I was scheduled to be in Las Vegas to manage a live event for a client; 300 person conference with stage production elements. What's funny though, is when I returned and had a day to run errands, I took a wrong turn and ended up in front of @Large Films' parking lot. I emailed Trista the next day and scheduled an appointment to meet with Juliana Lukasik, owner and executive producer of the company.

Juliana gave me the tour, introduced me to her staff and we proceeded to have a get to know you chat that led to a conversation about the disparity of women in the creative fields; communications and of course the film industry. More specifically, we talked about a paper Juliana wrote on her thoughts coming out of the Boards Summit, "...an annual event for creative agencies, production companies and media to network and learn about the industry from some of the top creative agencies of the world..." Given this paper and her interest in flushing out solutions to increase the number of women calling the shots, we decided to move forward and set a show date in June.
