Hollywood, and the film industry in general, are part of a predominantly male-dominated field but things are beginning to change. The voices of women and minorities across the board are being given new opportunities to share their unique perspectives. Life as a Mermaid is a Validus Productions web series that I am proud and honoured to be a part of. Over the last couple of years this YouTube Channel has gained over 51 million views and become a favourite of imaginative young people worldwide. Recently Film Daily invited the women of LAAM to sit down and chat about our experiences with this wonderful family show.
