When girls play Be the Director, they sit in a place few women are found in Hollywood -- the director’s chair. They make the choices about wardrobe, camera angles, script, sound design and even how the actors deliver their lines on a virtual film set.
At the end of the experience, girls can watch a movie customized by the decisions they have made and highlighting the choices shape every piece of media they consume -- delivering a hands-on lesson in media literacy.
