The reason I'm interested in alternative worlds and near-future settings is that it allows us to look at our own limitations in our worldviews. These settings allow me to explore how our world might evolve if we allow individualistic kinds of success to remain our primary value. I'm not trying to be overly bleak, and I don't feel bleak or sad about our world. I want empowered and educated people who understand a lot about the world's challenges to strive to be noble, rather than cynical. I think we still need more chamMore Jennifer Phang quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am committed to creating a vision of the world that reflects how I believe it is: diverse. It is not an effort to diversify media representation, but rather, it comes out of the world I have grown up in.More Jennifer Phang quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Female directors really do need to support each other. Too many times I've been led to believe that my direct competition was other women, as if there can be only a handful of successful female filmmakers a year. That conversation, that perception, needs to change. Women are the people who have helped me make films I love, and I want to be that kind of strength to other women.More Jennifer Phang quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you have your chance to make a film, don't focus on pleasing everyone. I think the goal is to live in that sweet spot where you focus on making a good film and you have fun with your collaborators, but you don't waste your energy chasing approval every which way. When you have a vision and a good story and you've managed to raise funding, it is your approval as a director that everyone should be seeking. It's very simple.More Jennifer Phang quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Women can be pressured to be perfect in many ways. And in our efforts to be "responsible" in every way, you might lose time and energy. If you truly want to direct [a film], you may have to let go of pleasing everyone on a consistent basis.More Jennifer Phang quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
