Cinematic Women

I created a new blog focused on women in hollywood. This is a topic which is of great interest to me and one which I thought warranted it's own blog. At Cinematic Women I write about not only actresses but the women behind the camera (directors, screenwriters, etc) and other issues concerning them. So check it out at Cinematic Women ! I've got a few posts up so far and quite a lot of ideas brewing at the moment. The blog's design is a bit wonky at the moment but I'm working on fixing it to my pleasing. Please let me know what you like/don't like about the blogs content... I'm always looking for improvement. I may continue to blog at The World Inside A Picture Frame from time to time too.

I'm Back... Sort Of....

Wow! I've been gone from blogging for a while now. And I got to say that I've missed it. A lot. So much has happened in the last few months; I switched schools, started contemplating what to major in (and I'm slowly narrowing it down), and started a new job.
But anyways, now I'm back, well, sort of. You see I've discovered a major love for films and an incredible annoyance with how females are making movies in Hollywood. It's a topic which really fires me up and makes me want to do something. Originally I wanted to be a journalist working for a fashion magazine, and while I still harbor that dream in someways, I want to do something more with my life. And film is where it's at. People consume so much media these days and it's simply awful how few women have a say over what's being created. In 2010 only 7% of the top 250 highest grossing films were directed by a women. And only 10% of the top highest grossing films were written by a women. Statistics like this make it all too apparent how little women are in control of the films which are released each year. So I'm still in the midst of mulling this over but I've been thinking of either turning this into a women and film blog or creating an completely new blog devoted to the subject. I just wanted to say hello though and give everyone a heads up. But for now, if you are interested in what I have to say about women and film check out my tumblr devoted to the subject! It's http://cinematicstyle.tumblr.com.
Lots of Love,
