A Tale of Two Scripts

I’ve been recalibrating a script – basically from the ground up – and thought it might be interesting for you guys to see the first page of each and how very different they are! So, BEHOLD. To the left, you have the old version. To the right, the new. Odds are pretty good that I’ll […]

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday – It’s Not Good Yet.

I grapple with how much to share on here – how much of the process to reveal, how much to show the sausage being made. My general inclination is to only show polished performances & work, which I adhere to completely when other people are involved. But what about things I’m writing or doing myself? […]

February 2019 Update!

I made two big changes last month — first, I totally revamped my website! Tada! This is it! I’ll be posting here instead of on Patreon, so make sure you’ve subscribed to the blog. I imported a list of Patreon subscribers so if you’re magically getting this email WITHOUT having signed up, that’s what happened. […]

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday – What roles are MANDATORY on set?

What are film roles you’ll never leave out on your future sets? Perhaps because you’ve had to work without them before, etc. (things like HMU, production design, AD, line producer, etc etc. Anything beyond director/producer/DP basically) – Bri  Thanks, Bri!!  Hey! First, big ol thanks to my Patrons over at patreon.com/katehackett for supporting me every […]

PATRON ONLY EXCLUSIVE #FemaleFilmmakerFriday – Stay in your lane!

As an artist, I really, really hate the “stay in your own lane” mantra that’s been floating around. I didn’t become an actor (or a writer) to exclusively perform in my wheelhouse. The argument for it is that there are fewer opportunities for <insert minority here> and I understand that. I respect that we want […]

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday – What’s Fi-Core?

Rounding out my union series… Let’s talk fi-core. Financial Core allows employees to work in a union environment without becoming full members. It is a federal law and SAG has to play ball with it. Actors go Fi-Core for a lot of reasons, but the bottom line becomes: they can legally work non-union jobs. They […]

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday – Union vs Non Union: why?

This is a big question for indie productions — not just howto go union (which I covered here) but also should wego union. My answer is yes. Always. For a few reasons: Your talent is stronger You’re protecting your cast by agreeing to adhere to union rules Your production is professional For short project agreements […]
