Naomi is a Writer/Actor/Producer and a Founder of The 51 Fund. She started writing plays as a way to create complex parts to play, but kept the writer identity to herself. Why do we do that?!
She is also a filmmaker who wrote, produced and starred in Imagine I’m Beautiful, and is currently in pre-production on her next film, Bite Me.
She is also an activist for gender parity in Hollywood and to that end has founded a VC fund for women driven films – The 51 Fund. And she has a brilliant Ted talk that you should watch here. And, she has a podcast that you can listen to here.
Did you know that in order to get people to trust you with their money you need to have a male producer? Lots of people told her that.
Spoiler: it’s not true.
And....um....my apologies in advance to any mediocre white men who may be listening. Although, we know that the men listening here are extraordinary.
