  • Success stories of local companies leveraging Film Commission work to expand their businesses, add jobs and bring revenue to the local economy.

She will cover….:
  • The challenges of being a local cheerleader versus asking hard questions about public money spent for movie-making efforts.
  • How to cover a movie being filmed without giving away too many spoilers.
  • How cell phone photos/videos and social media have changed the reporting process.
