Cate gets behind a female trio who plan to shake up film animation
The new purpose-built, female-led studio is being fronted by Sarah Smith, Elisabeth Murdoch and Julie Lockhart, pictured left to right. “I’m here because of the amazing women I’m supporting tonight,” Blanchett told The Londoner. “Julie and Sarah have been leading for so long and them linking up with the likes of Liz is not only exciting for audiences but the industry. It’s time we saw women in these positions.”
Who knows, we might be seeing Cate in one of Locksmith’s forthcoming movies. “I’m a huge fan,” she said. “I remember the first time I saw an animation by Disney it blew my mind.”
