Right now is a pivotal moment in filmmaking, when women are finally getting to tell the stories they want to tell. (About time, right?) Take, for instance, Shatterbox — Refinery29's own award-winning, female-helmed short-film series. For this series, women produce films about the hard-hitting subjects they want to talk about: gender, sexuality, choice, and power. It's part of a larger shift that redefines what it means to be a filmmaker — and what you can do with that power.
But there’s a lot more that goes into filmmaking than meets the eye. To gain insight into the makings of a Shatterbox film, we’re teaming up with Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans for an exclusive BTS video. Press play to go behind the camera and sit down in the director's chair.
