I vetted scripts for Intrinsic Value Films, a multiple award-winning narrative film production company: it’s been honored with numerous nominations, including the Sundance Special Grand Jury prize and five nominations each at both the Gotham and Independent Spirit awards. Eight films have premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, four at the Tribeca Film Festival, three at SXSW, and one each at Toronto, Venice, New York FF, New Directors/ New Films, and Berlin. I analyzed theme, character development, plot, and pacing for each submission under weekly quotas to determine production value. I took direction from the Head of Development.
I also led marketing initiatives for Red Palette Pictures, which has won Indie Fest Awards and New Filmmaker’s awards. I wrote marketing collateral including press kits, proposals, crowd-funding campaigns, and correspondence. I also edited projects in post-production and streamlined data storage protocol.
I was also an Assistant Freelance Video Editor for “On the Case with Paula Zahn” on Investigative Discovery Channel, which is the network’s highest rated show produced by Weinberger Media, recipient of three Emmy-awards.
