9 a.m. Produce Beautiful Work (for Fun and Profit)
Today’s communicators face a lot of pressure to serve the overall objectives of their companies while also needing to continuously learn about new technologies and developments, the best of which must be leveraged effectively in their programs. “Produce Beautiful Work” is both a mantra and a detailed methodology crafted by the leaders of Thornberg & Forester to focus in on winning pitches and crafting content that honors client involvement inside a proven framework that consistently produces remarkable work. During the presentation, T&F principals will walk through a six-step process illuminating winning tips for maximizing each phase of client development, with real-world examples from recent high-profile case studies.
Speaker: Elizabeth Thornberg, Co-Founder, Thornberg & Forester (T&F)

10 a.m. Producing for Non-Profits
More and more, the non-profit world is turning to documentary-style video as a way to communicate their mission. “Producing for Non-Profits” will focus on identifying the common challenges in producing cause-based documentary content, creating effective pre-production workflow that hones client goals and vision, and strategies for achieving that vision in the field.
Speaker: Tessa Moran, Director, Eidolon Films
Speaker: Ben Crosbie, Director and Cinematographer, Eidolon Films

11 a.m. Lighting and Shooting Interviews
How do you make the right choices about camera placement and lighting when shooting interviews? And how do you do that consistently? This session will focus on best practices for lighting and shooting interviews. It will discuss and demonstrate certain “rules” or “agreements” that can be followed to help you consistently shoot great looking, great sounding and natural interviews. This 90-minute supersession will also include live demonstrations of various equipment and setups.
Speaker: Jem Schofield, Founder, theC47
