Women in film production: Director/Writer/Producer Mira Nair

“I want to question what the outside is and who defines it. I often find those that are considered to be on the outside extremely inspiring. They are the people who see through the double standards…”

“…I know what it’s like to be in one place and dream of another. I also know what it’s like to feel that nostalgia is a fairly useless thing because it is stasis. It does not take you many places.”

“What is really important to me is a sense of humour and a mischief about life. Life is just too boring otherwise.”

“I am an independent film-maker first and foremost. I have always cut my own cloth.”

“I always like to reveal the fact that the emperor has no clothes. And children are best at that. They teach us how to see the world in that sense. They are without artifice; they see it for what it is. I am drawn to that ruthless honesty.”

“I like to be unabashed, which is an Indian trait, both emotionally and visually. It’s important to have a circus to play with.”

    Greetings~
    I am casting Samsung’s Ad Campaign for the new LCD3D Television release. Our Ad Agency is interested in utilizing authentic voices who are well versed in 3D technology to bring our product to the US market. We are planning to feature two experts (at least one female) who will be at the forefront of the Samsung LCD3D campaign and present this exciting 3D technology to the country.

    What we are looking for: A professional 3D expert, working in the 3D space whether it be in gaming, content or technology who is incredibly enthusiastic about their position. A woman who has an active role in creating and bringing breakthrough 3D experiences to the world. Someone who is a vibrant character with personality and charisma. Someone who will represent the Samsung brand by being optimistic, imaginative, and collaborative. Chosen personalities may be used to promote on a global scale.

    If this sounds like we are describing you please email me your contact information, tell me a little about yourself, and include a picture or link to any online sites we can view you at. Or if you would like to refer a woman that fits our description, please email me their contact information and I will be in touch.
