New Orleans Editor-Director @jjackson_12 talks about the struggles she had to overcome from within and without to make her latest short film, “Things With Feathers.
Read the full interview:
Jalea’s filmmaking journey has been one of facing fears, taking chances and overcoming obstacles in her way. It started as soon as she went to a university that didn’t have a full-fledged film school yet. She made the best of it anyway, taking away important lessons she picked up in theatre classes that she would later use in directing her actors.
Despite finding writing to be the most difficult part of the filmmaking process, she went ahead and, with the encouragement of writing friends, put together the script for her newest narrative short, Things With Feathers. This story of a young girl dealing with the internal trauma of being sexually assaulted only happened after some key advice from a major producer (who she still works for to this day) made her realize that she owed it to herself and the world to tell this story.
