Seeing the Little Sulley concepts in thesevideos makes me wonder how far they got into development before the plans changed. In the background of the top pic has what looks to me like Sulley’s parents.
For the bottom pic I’d also like to point out the time stamp is 9/26/11 (as seen in this post). And also, let’s not forget, BABY NANCY KIM. :3
I’d love to hear both of them [Robert Duncan McNeill and Roxann Dawson] talk about directing, especially Roxann. I’m pretty sure she was the only female director for the entirety of ENT. I’m not sure about VOY, but I’m sure there weren’t many, if any others.
Wow. You are correct about Enterprise. Here are how they all break down (assuming that traditionally male names (James, Mike, etc) are males. I checked all ambiguous names).

So. Interesting to note that Enterprise actually has the largest percentage of Episodes directed by a woman… because Roxann directed 10 of them. Also, Voyager has the most diversity with FOUR different women directing. But, these numbers are pretty pitiful.
I was able to find some info on all the women
Gabrielle Beaumont (born 7 April 1942; age 72) was born in London and is the first woman to direct on Star Trek. Other directorial credits include M*A*S*H, The Dukes of Hazzard, Miami Vice, Law & Order, and Beverly Hills, 90210.
Roxann Dawson (born 11 September 1958; age 56) is the actress best known for portraying Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres on Star Trek: Voyager (initially credited as Roxann Biggs-Dawson). She also directed two episodes of Star Trek: Voyager and ten episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise. In addition to her Voyager and Enterprise work, she has directed episodes of such programs as Crossing Jordan, The O.C., J.J. Abrams‘s Lost, Cold Case, Heroes starring Zachary Quinto,The Closer starring Raymond Cruz and Gina Ravarra, Lie to Me, The Good Wife, The Mentalist and The Cape.
Kim H. Friedman directed ten episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager from 1995 to1997. Friedman also directed episodes of Alice, Knots Landing, Dynasty, The Love Boat, Babylon 5, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Beverly Hills, 90210 and the L.A. Law episode “Handroll Express”, for which Friedman was nominated for the “Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series” Emmy Award.
Allison Liddi (born August 2, 1959) had previously directed for such television programs as The Secret World of Alex Mack, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Beverly Hills, 90210. Since directing “Collective” she has directed episodes of many hit shows, including Friday NIght LIghts, CSI, Roswell, Boston Legal, Monk, Bones, Scandal, and Parenthood.
Nancy Malone was born on March 19, 1935 in Queens Village, Long Island, New York, USA as Ann Maloney. She was an actress and director, known for Guiding Light (1952), Touched by an Angel (1994) and Naked City (1958). She died on May 8, 2014 in Duarte, California, USA.
Cheryl Gates McFadden (born 2 March 1949; age 65) has portrayed Beverly Crusher, MD, in most episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and in four Star Trek films. McFadden also directed the TNG episode “Genesis” and choreographed the dance routine in “Data’s Day”. In 2011, McFadden began a recurring role as judge Mallory Jacobs on the legal comedy television series Franklin and Bash having her working again with Malcolm McDowell. McFadden debuted in the first season finale “Go Tell it on the Mountain” where as Jacobs, presided over the trial of Macdowell’s character Stanton Infeld. McFadden returned in the second season, first in “For Those About to Rock” joining Geoffrey Blake, Peter Weller and Tom Wright and again in the season finale “650 to SLC” reuniting with Conundrum guest star Erich Anderson. Anderson himself has a recurring role on the series.
“Only 4.4 percent of the top 100 box-office domestic releases between 2002 and 2012 were directed by women.”
“In a recent study, the Guild established that minority men directed 17 percent of the prime time episodic television produced from 2013-14, while white women directed 12 percent and minority women directed 2 percent.”
So, as a concluding remark, Roxann the only woman director on Enterprise, she is the woman who directed the most episodes of Star Trek (12), and she is the only minority woman to direct on Star Trek.
