YES! It wasn't just a talkfest - our robust discussion a few months ago - Where are the Women Filmmakers? has hit home with our very own South Pacific Pictures CEO Kelly Martin.
Thanks to her South Pacific Pictures is implementing affirmative action - and it's not all mouth and no trousers.
Going forward there will be a 50% ratio of women to men in their trainee programme.
It's the first step by a major production company and its significant. Let's hope it leads others in the industry to be proactive as well by bringing talented women forward. We look forward to seeing others follow SPP's lead...
Congratulations SPP - best Xmas present ever!
