36 – Specialist Subject 2: Stefanie Davis made a hot mess!


Getting a film made is a huge undertaking. And the vast majority of films are produced and directed by men. So when we heard that Stefanie Davis had written. directed and produced her own feature, we hunted her down and begged her to share her secrets!

Stefanie and Contrarah go into detail about the path to filmmaking, Stefanie’s championing of the ‘survival job’ and how her gender has both nothing and everything to do with how and why she made her movie.

In case you thought that we were criticising Stefanie’s work(!), the title of the movie is Hot Mess in a Wedding Dress.
