Female Entrepeneur

We Do That

We Do That

My partners and I tend be uncomfortable with the notion of self-promoting. We often assume most people know what we do from the occasional social media post. Therefore, we don’t spend a lot of time getting specific about what it is we do at FLOWSTATE Films outside of “appropriate” formats.   And, I have to be honest, I am sure this discomfort around self-promotion has something to do with gender (but that’s a blog post for another time).  But, clearly there is a line between unabashed self-promotion and simply letting people know what you do, especially something you deeply enjoy, so that you don't miss potential clients. 

Power of the Pump?

Power of the Pump?

I have been in the film/video production industry for 14 years.  As a woman in a male-dominated industry I have faced everything from chauvinism and overt bias to subconscious underestimation. It’s not everywhere and it's not everyone – but it is prevalent and I can’t imagine there is one woman in the industry who hasn’t faced some sort of discrimination or been impacted by this sometimes misogynous culture.

We were recently featured in the online magazine, Woman Around Town, about knowing when to venture out on your own, starting a business, navigating through a male dominated industry, and what's coming up next for FLOWSTATE!
