3) Generation Lockdown was the most important work I did in 2019. My brother is a lacrosse coach at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass in Parkland so I jumped at the opportunity to partner with MFOL. The producers at Hungry Man and I spent six months researching companies that would allow us to shoot our drill in their workspace…and while the awards and accolades are great the most important reward from that project is that it started so many conversations about what our children are learning every day at school.
4) Definitely getting a sense that there are more entertainment style jobs coming our way…which is a great and exciting challenge for the producers on my team. One of our deliverables for Super Bowl 2019 was a half hour documentary that ran on CBS Sports and the NFL Network – after doing so many digital executions it was fun to have the opportunity to do a feature length execution.
5) Across all of our Verizon production platforms we are consistently learning to be more ergonomic and nimble. This will continue into 2020 as we producers will continue to be charged with leading the ways to efficient production solutions to accommodate tighter timelines and budgets. My production team is continuously keeping up with trends and learning how to problem solve in real time so we can keep ambitious programs on track creatively and financially.
6) Every year I challenge myself to do something impossible. From running marathons, to a small part in a big movie, there always needs to be a goal personally and professionally. For 2020 we have a few big hills to conquer.
