Women of color rarely get a seat in the director's chair. MADE IN HER IMAGE is going to change that.
OUR MOVEMENT WILL NOT BE TELEVISED
According to research from the USC Anneberg School for Communication and Journalism, of the 1,000 top grossing films from 2007 to 2016, only five were directed by women of color.
Women in general comprised just 5% of directors in the top 250 films in 201
In 2019, we have developed and started running one day Incubators with the Phoenix Art Museum and the Sundance Institute. These are short form programs garnered towards giving youth a crash course within film, media and technology. Youth leave having made a smaller 30 second PSA. We’re looking to expand the incubators through digital curriculum and programming with launches U.S wide and throughout the country.
Our camps are USUALLY 3-4 days apiece. Within these longer form workshops, we have more of an expansive program garnered towards educating and empowering young women to create a 3-5 minute film with industry mentors and leading technology. Youth take courses within cinematography, lighting, screen-writing, directing and acting. Each class is spear-headed by an industry educator and each group of girls are accompanied by industry mentors.
TOURS & workshops
Our youth have been able to participate within extensive tours such as Disney Animation Studios, Paramount and Universal. All of these have been amazing and so pivotoal to the success and exposure for the girls.
Do you want to learn more about directing? Acting? Do you have a child who wants to re-live the MIHI experience? Want to open a MIHI chapter in your area? Our online curriculum will help to facilitate any learning needs you, or your youth may have.
Founded in 2018, Made In Her Image is a non-profit movement striving towards social equity in the film, media and entertainment industry for girls & women of color.

We are dedicated to the advancement of young girls and women in film, media, and technology, and strive to create and shape the film pioneers and revolutionaries of tomorrow. Through comprehensive stem development, we're engaging and empowering the next generation of storytellers, above & below the line.
Our mission is to give girls and gender non-binary youths of color the opportunity to create their own vision within the realms of film through programming, camps, workshops and more.
