Film sets are high pressure environments with brutally long hours and the traditionally hierarchical structure of a military campaign. In this episode, filmmaker and much sought-after editor Lesley Marshall tells us how she balances the needs of her young daughter with her work in the film industry, why she thinks we should demand on set childcare, and what employing anti-oppression based filmmaking and horizontal leadership structures would look like.
Lesley is an award-winning filmmaker whose films have screened in 40 festivals nationally and internationally, whose music videos have been featured on sites like Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Vice and Exclaim!, whose projection art has been performed at the National Art Centre, Montreal Jazz Fest, CentrePHI, and in galleries in NYC, the Netherlands and across Canada. Her production company MAVNetwork, has worked with Netflix, Vox Media, TD Bank, and MLB, among others.
