Terry’s Picks: Big Difference, Pitch Perfect, Sound Women

Big Difference: ABC News shines a light on one of the age-old problems of film: pay inequity. They spoke with experts in both Hollywood and the field of economics to break down the disparity and see why there’s a $40 million difference between the highest paid actor and actress this year.

Pitch Perfect: Reed Morano talks to Filmmaker Magazine about pitching – and directing – Hulu’s harrowing and brilliant series The Handmaid’s Tale. 

Sound Women: The Atlantic digs into the significant gender disparity in the audio field, and how organizations like our friends at Sound Girls are working to close the gap.
