Even with the world of television viewing expanding through the creation of new online streaming services, finding directing jobs can be difficult. The search is even harder for women.
Vera Miao a 42-year-old actress from Guam looking to make the leap into directing found what looked to be a perfect opportunity in an online post for the new Warner Bros. Digital Networks’ Stage 13, which was looking for female directors. All it said was that a major studio was starting a digital enterprise and was interested to talking to women and/or people of color who are working in the genre space.
“So, of course, I responded, and, of course, thought nothing was going come of it,” Miao says.
She was wrong. The studio jumped at the idea for her “Two Sentence Horror Story.”
