Leading Directors
SHOOT profiles a cross-section of leading directors who share insights into recent work and collaborative relationships.  Our lineup includes:
--Jamie Babbit, a three-time Emmy nominee (Best Director and two Outstanding Comedy Series nods) for Silicon Valley, discusses her wide-ranging exploits spanning TV (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Russian Doll, Nora From Queens starring Awkwafina), features (the upcoming The Stand-In with Drew Barrymore) and commercials (including this year's Super Bowl spot for Olay produced by Independent Media).
--Nicole Kassell discusses Watchmen, the acclaimed HBO series for which she serves as a director and executive producer.  For the first episode of Watchmen, "It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice," Kassell won this year's DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Dramatic Series.
--Joseph Kosinski whose recent endeavors span such wide-ranging fare as the much-anticipated Top Gun: Maverick and  tongue-in-cheek cinematic style ad work for Taco Bell, the latter done via his spotmaking home, RESET Content.
--Anthony & Joe Russo--whose directorial achievements include the highest grossing film of all time, Avengers: Endgame--discuss their careers encompassing features, TV and short-form fare, the latter embodied in the exploits of their commercials/branded content studio, Bullitt.
--David Shane of production house O Positive discusses his latest Super Bowl spot, a tour de force comedy/visual effects effort for Rocket Mortgage starring Jason Momoa, as well as more sobering yet humorous public service Xmas-themed fare for the National Alliance of Mental Illness.
--Joe Talbot, a DGA Award nominee this year for Best First Feature on the strength of The Last Black Man in San Francisco--which also won him the best dramatic directing honor at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Talbot discusses his directorial debut feature as well as his short-form aspirations which entail joining m ss ng p eces for spots and branded content.
--Additional names to be announced.

Up-And-Coming Directors
As SHOOT prepares for the 18th Annual SHOOT New Directors Showcase Event, it's a pleasure to continue our tradition of introducing new talent. This year's spring collection includes:
--A director who scored a Grammy nomination this year for her music video work and recently landed at a prominent production house for branded content, commercials and music clips.
--A female filmmaker who is making inroads into a province not typically open to women--sheet metal, particularly groundbreaking truck advertising.
--A director whose work reflects an affinity for crafting stories chronicling global youth culture and marginalized communities--while recently diversifying with the first installment in a new series of Nike films, and a music video for the debut single of a performing artist best known as a producer for the likes of IDK, AlunaGeorge, Joey Bada$$ and Jay Rock.

A Sampling from SHOOT's April Coronavirus Impact & Contingencies Survey
SHOOT will be publishing the results of it's Coronavirus Impact & Contingencies Survey on on April 10th.  We'll publish select excerpts from that survey in this Issue.  Here's info on the Survey....“Going viral” has taken on a whole new deeper and foreboding meaning in the last month.  This special SHOOT survey is being conducted to shed light on how the industry is coping with the coronavirus pandemic. The survey is designed to exchange information and ideas to help us through this challenging period. Company owners and execs will share how their shops have been impacted and what they’re doing to adapt.  We hope that the responses generated by this survey will help others in the community see that they’re not alone, that collectively much can be done to positively address fear and adversity, and in the process inspire courses of action that aid in protecting people, their livelihoods and business in general.
