In Episode 93, Gen and Jette kick off their graphic novel book club with Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. This graphic novel memoirs chronicles Bechdel's complex relationship with her father, and she does it with nuance, honesty, and humour. It's a fantastic read and we nerd out a lot on literature, as well as the graphic novel form. Show Notes: Fun Home was adapted as a musical and won a Tony Award for Best Musical in 2015. After finishing Fun Home, we both immediately wanted to read Are You My Mother?, Bechdel's second graphic novel memoir that chronicles, you guessed it, her relationship with her mother. We go off on a few literary tangents (as you do) and ponder James Joyce, the Fitzgeralds, the Alcotts, and Thoreau, among others. You may recognize Bechdel's name from the famous Bechdel test, wherein a movie will pass the test so long as two female characters speak to each other about something other than a man.

After 25+ years in Film Acquisition at HBO, where she served as SVP of Film Programming and responsible for the HBO Latino programming model, Doris Casap made a leap of faith and launched MOTHER FILMS as Founder/CEO, an independent production, sales and advisory company based in NYC. In her first year, Casap executive produced and sold (to Amazon and Peacock) “A Most Beautiful Thing," a documentary depicting the journey of the country's first all-Black rowing team, a group of high schoolers from Chicago's West Side. Her short film, "F^¢K '€M R!GHT B@¢K" starring rapper Ddm Ddm, was accepted into Sundance and won Best Comedy Film at the Aspen Shortsfest. She was also a consulting producer and sales distributor on “Surge,” a documentary sold to Showtime about the surge of female candidates in the 2018 Midterms and the triumphant victory of now-Representative Lauren Underwood, the youngest Black woman ever in Congress, with Executive Producers Alyssa Milano and Katie Couric. Diving into the horror genre, she executive produced “Red Pill,” written and directed by Tony Award winning actress, Tonya Pinkins, a political horror movie which premiered during the 2021 Pan African Film Festival in Feb/Mar 2021 and was released on multiple platforms, including iTunes, Prime Video and Direct TV, after receiving glowing coverage in a growing number of publications and platforms, running the gamut from Forbes to Black Girl Nerds. Tonya's political horror film tells the story of a posse of progressives who ride into red country armed with idealism on the eve of the 2020 Election, when they should have brought heavy artillery. In addition to films, she oversaw the acquisition and commissioning of HBO Latino branded music programming. Awards for these programs include a Latin Grammy for Sony Music for music special “En Letra de Otro” with Pedro Capo, which led to a series of specials including “En Letra de Otro” with Farruko. Concerts included Carlos Santana, Gilberto Santa Rosa , Gente de Zona, Juanes, and many others. Along with being on the board of Almanack Screenwriters, Casap was most recently on the boards of the New York Urban League and El Museo del Barrio. Currently, she is an advisor to Second Act Women, Team TLC New York, and the upcoming Reading Rainbow Live. She has been an activist for the promotion of social justice and liberal causes, including the election of women, immigration and voting rights.  Looking at film as a throughline, she believes "comedy that moves culture through its humanity, and it's culture that's necessary to have been moved to make policy possible."

What makes Amelia nervous about auditions: Expectations for what good means What is your personal best? Rejection is constant That little voice still shows up "The biggest thing you have to sell is yourself." Humans are messy and flawed, and you have to remember as an actor you have to be that too. Prepping for an audition: First step: Script analysis Start to get a sense of what I'm wearing and hair Shoes can even help Read it and move around You have to think of an audition as your role for the time you are working on it “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever has.” Learn to apologize less. Tips for Newbie Actors: Pay attention You don't know everything Be interested and curious Want to learn and grow Choose to grow into the best version of yourself What is that? What does that look like? It's ok to be new and it's ok not to say anything. When in doubt leave it out. Listen and absorb.
