Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Nov 10, 2023

Jeanne Mailloux works on commercial sets as a union Electrician. (And spells out to me the difference between the Grips and Electricains.) She shares fascinating insights about her start in filmmaking meeting Nick Cage, working on "Birdman" and being a female Electrician in that male-dominated department. We delve into reflections on human suffering, ego, humility, and how Buddhism has shaped Jeanne's understanding of life and art. Her passion for mental health advocacy is clear. 

I never know where these conversations will go, but sure apprecate Jeanne's openess and sharing her journey. Check out her substack here
