I am filming a documentary. This is a first time endeavor but I am certain it will be successful with hard work, patience, collaboration and of course the right connections. Due to my documentary pursuit I created Land Sky Media productions, LLC. I have always wanted my own business, and hope that one day I can provide valuable services to those dedicated to the art that is documentary. I would love to become a full time documentary filmmaker, but I understand competition is fierce in New York City. A girl can dream right?
Being a few months in the film making process I find myself rather overwhelmed. I am in definite need of mentoring in relation to fundraising, sponsorship and social media marketing. I am willing to learn and appreciate any advice that can be provided. The only thing that I am certain of at this point is that my will and desire to complete this documentary overrides any obstacles or issues along the way, but like all people starting off, I need help.
I hosted an Emmy award-winning program called Transit Transit News Magazine where I learned how to interview individuals, work under pressure, and deal with a variety of personalities and people. In addition I interned at Bronx Net, assisting with live show productions that streamed into thousands of homes, managed the floor and audio board for a public access show at Bric Arts Media, made appearances as an actress for two films, and was 1 of 3 hosts for a documentary about incarceration.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Saint Johns University, a Masters in Business Administration from Long Island University, and certificates for Television Studio & Field Production from BRIC Arts Media.
I volunteer at the Jewish Braille institute, and recently finished audio narrating a book. I am also a member of New York Women in Film and Television.
Did I mention I work full time? :)
