“I look forward to celebrating with all of you for a more inclusive future and for more hope for first time directors as well. Although we can’t compare the nature of pain and their social economical and legal implications. It has been a lot of progress in the past few years to highlight the difficulties of different groups such as the LGBTQ community such as a representation inclusion for black Asian and minority communities and deaf community and as we have seen in the latest Oscar which has been really rewarding thanks to the people who have come forward in the past revealing their truth that helped Me-too, Black Lives Matter, no to Asian hate and the latest Academy awards has proven the work has been fruitful in bringing more diversity including for the deaf community.
We wish to highlight about the boycott of the industry which blocks first timers from having a movie greenlit because of the difficulties for first time filmmakers to have the main cast locked so far. This is not just a personal issue, but it is an issue that affects a lot of filmmakers as first-time filmmakers trying to make it in Hollywood.
The same problem is also linked to a representation with an agent or the manager or the lawyer and entertainment do not wish to represent first time filmmakers and directors because if you have not done a movie yet, so nobody wants to represent you. In the same way if you have not done a movie no Studio no streamer wants to give any funding because you are a first time Director. This is a problem that is paralyzing for a lot of filmmakers who have ambition to make it in entertainment and not to make a movie with 500$. I hope to be able to use my voice to bring more inclusivity in every way.” Says Zhou
