Discovery Channel and Old School, New School Producer

June 12, 2009

Received a sweet invite from the folks at CINE in Washington, DC. They’ve asked me to appear on a panel at Discovery Channel on July 15th. What an honor!

When I saw the list of who was going to be on the panel I nearly fell out of my chair. Check it out: Donald Thoms, CINE president and former VP of Talent Development for Discovery Studios; Rita Mullin VP of Production and Development at TLC; Rick Allen, CEO of SnagFilms. I’m excited just to hear these members talk! Should be a great night. If you’re in DC Wednesday, July 15 at 6.30pm stop on by! Topic of discussion is “What Makes a Winning Film”. Check CINE for specifics.

Thanks for the invite, Wendy! See you on the 15th.
