Visual History with Victoria Hochberg

Interviewed by: Linda Feferman

Victoria Hochberg discusses her career directing episodic television (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Sex and the City), movies for television (Jacob Have I Loved, Sweet 15), and her involvement in the founding of the DGA’s Women’s Steering Committee.

Director Victoria Hochberg talks about how she creatively staged a scene with two characters in order to meet a time constraint while shooting an episode of Sex and the City.

Hochberg reveals how she and a group of fellow female DGA members, who would found the Women's Steering Committee, compiled and presented data about the lack of representation of women as directors in the film industry.

Hochberg discusses the issue of directors receiving late scripts in episodic television and how the creative rights committee, of which she was a member worked together to address the problem.
