Q&A: Meet Breakout Session Leaders

As our conference dates approach, we spent our last Q&A talking with several of the breakout session leaders.  Jones was joined by Christian Schultz (Music Bed),  Cody Dulock (Film Supply), Ryan Rossman & Ryan Welch (AO Creative & Moetic Wedding Films),  Andrew Sorlie (Stature Films),  Elizabeth Allen (Copper Penny Films), and Taryn Pollock (Serendipity Cinema).

They each had great tips to share about curating your portfolio, same day edits for corporate and commercial clients, and  improving your business to make room for your family and personal life.  We’re so grateful that they took the time to share their own personal experiences with us, and we look forward to their breakout sessions at our conference gathering in Charleston (January 2015).

    Teams – Step by Step on How to Create and Manage

    Pollock will be presenting on the power of creating teams, and learning to develop a business, not work for the business. Since the inception of Serendipity in 2005, her company has always worked in teams. She now manages 6 teams of filmmakers that shoot over 100 weddings a year, and she doesn’t film a single one of them. Her weekends are available to be with her kids and family, and yet her business still makes money for her. Attendees to this presentation can expect to learn HOW to create teams in their studio not just why it is beneficial. Pollock will take them step by step through the process so they have an exact roadmap to immediately implement a “Team” strategy into their studio. We are excited to have Pollock share her knowledge of business development, sales, and management with our group of filmmakers.
