To me, feminist media makes a statement. Feminist art makes a statement. Feminist media brings that into another creative spectrum.
I feel like feminist anything really equates to putting yourself out there. I think even feminist theory requires a personal look at yourself. You can’t produce true, good feminist media without caring about the issue. It is revealing, it is making a statement, it is forcing your audience to hear your statement.
Feminist media is taking the tools you have...whatever they may be...and using them in diverse ways in order to create something unique and impactful. The shots are deliberate, the editing is deliberate. It is being conscious of the story you are telling, and making the subject the most important thing...embodying the right persona. It is making sure the subject is also the director...the story is shared by the subject material and the director.
These are the lessons I have taken from feminist media thus far. I know that there are still lessons to learn, and hopefully I will have the opportunity to learn more in the future.
