About Elemental Women Productions

Welcome to the Elemental Women Productions Patreon page! 

We are a women focused production company based in NYC owned and run by Broghanne Jessamine (she/her/hers), Scottish immigrant, and actor. Elemental Women Productions produces theater, film and more all with the mission to amplify women’s voices and experiences through the arts.

Through a set of core values and operation requirements we are closing the gender gap in the entertainment industry and empowering women to share their stories. We require that at least 75% of all our casts, crews and creative teams are made up of women artists. Every project must be led by a woman and written by women. We are working to source all our production needs (props, costumes, set, and so on) from women owned businesses and we link our productions to the outside world by donating at least 20% of profits from all ticketed events to organizations that are on the ground furthering the subject matter we are speaking about.

The arts are an amazing way to spread awareness, provoke thought, teach empathy, and make change. We are a part of that and so are you. We need art, we need to tell stories that represent the world we want to see. Shining a light on the voices and experiences that are often overlooked or pushed aside.

Now why do we do this? Why should you care?

In 2019, Women and Hollywood analyzed the 100 top grossing films and found that only 34% of speaking or named roles were women. Only 19.4% of screenwriters were women, women composers made up 5.2% for these top 100 grossing films and from the 1,518 individuals that worked as writers, directors and producers on these films, only 22.3% of these top positions were filled by women. These statistics do not cover the even lower percentages for women of color or those in the LGBTQIA+ community. In 2020, women made up 40% of producers for the 100 top grossing films of the year, 38% of directors, 35% or the writers, 28% of editors and 16% of cinematographers. The percentage of key behind the scenes roles held by women was 34% in 2020.
Independent films employed almost twice as many men as women. When you consider that women make up approximately 51% of the United States of America population and 47% approximately of box office sales, the percentages do not add up.

Now, that was film, let us look at theater, according to Production Pro, in 2019 there were 365 titled characters on Broadway, 32% of them women. Of the shows on Broadway, 13% were directed by women, 24% had female choreographers, 13% had women writers. Women made up 47% of stage managers, 30% of set designers, 22% of lighting designers, only 13% of sound departments, 15% of electricians and 65% of wardrobe. These stats do not cover the entire landscape of the entertainment world, there are plenty of other aspects to theater, off-Broadway, off-off-Broadway, regional theater, community theater, the list goes on.

But that is where we come in. We are changing the culture from the bottom, making sure that the women entering this industry have opportunities to gain experience and change the future of these statistics.

You can be a part of this change. You have that power. By supporting companies, like us, and independent artists who are working to make this industry better, safer and telling more stories than ever before.
