Filmmaker Jen McGowan found out she had been offered her first episodic directing gig on the way home from the interview. She knew the meeting had gone well. It felt like she had clicked with the producers, but she had nothing to compare it to. In fact, this was only the second interview she’d been called in for as a potential tv director.
It sounds simple – two interviews, one job. Currently, she has the satisfying feeling of finding herself on the shortlist of female filmmakers being floated around town. It feels to her like she’s become an overnight sensation.
In reality, this took 15 years.
