Get the scoop on how media publicity can benefit a career in cinematography. This diverse panel will reveal the ways publicists work with journalists to bring the stories behind a cinematographer’s imagery to life—as seen from various angles.
Expert participants will include independent publicist Meredith Emmanuel (Emmanuel Bates Communications), Jonathan Epstein, Strategy PR, and studio publicist Loraine Valverde (previously 20+ years with Warner Bros.) Joining them on the Zoom will be IndieWire’s Chris O’Falt, the Editor of American Cinematographer, and representatives of additional international trade publications to discuss how they turn behind-the-lens stories into articles. The panel will also feature Director of Photography Alan Jacobsen, and others for cinematographer’s candid points of view. The audience is encouraged to join in and ask questions during the Q&A.
