Brenda Chapman


She’s an american writer, story artist and director. She became the first woman to direct an animated feature film for a major studio with the Prince of Egypt (Dreamworks) in 1998, and she was also the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature for Brave (Disney/Pixar) in 2012.

Due to my research for my dissertation about the representation of women I considered contacting some professionals in the industry to answer some questions based in their experience.

I found Brenda Chapman’s blog and had the feeling that she was approachable. She agreed to answer some questions because it’s “always good to have that subject discussed”. It’s very exciting when a professional finds the time to help a student [interview].
