I am writing my thesis, which is about female film directors in the silent era. My advisor suggested that I added a supplement of clips from these films, but I am going a step further and having some actresses tell the stories from the perspectives of the directors themselves. Some of the clips will be from Alice Guy and Lois Weber. Some of the featured directors will be Lillian Gish and Alice Terry.

Risks and challenges

The challenges will be finding the right actresses to portray the female directors. So far, there have been some great applications. Now, I only need to pay them and have the costumes made.
