Join SHOOT and our 2016 Event Sponsors for an informative and entertaining afternoon of SHOOT Directors/Producers Forum panels and speakers, followed by a fun-filled evening including the debut screening of SHOOT's 14th Annual New Directors Showcase reel, panel introducing the new directors, and after-party.
 
Come Face to Face with New Connections and New Information from 1:30-9:30PM
Make your business calls in the morning, then unplug and spend the afternoon and evening with a cross-section of commercial & entertainment production and post executives from agencies, brands, companies, networks and studios as well as leading directors, and up-and-coming directors, cinematographers, editors and other production industry executives and artisans.   The daytime Forum will include several provocative & entertaining panels and speakers providing insights into where our industry is headed creatively and from a business standpoint.  Gain perspectives on and visions of what's in store so that you and your company can stay ahead of the curve, continuing to be relevant in an evolving marketplace.  During the evening New Directors Showcase agenda, you'll get a look-see at and meet some of the best up-and-coming directors who based on their initial work show promise to make positive contributions to advertising and/or entertainment in its traditional and hybrid forms. Having your finger on the talent pulse of the business is a perennial must to stay plugged into the present and future of our industry. Following the Showcase Screening, we'll hear from several of them about work to date and plans for gaining exposure in the marketplace --along with critiques/observations from several industry pros. And, the after-party affords attendees the opportunity to meet many of the new directors, mingle with industry friends and meet potential collaborators and clients.

We are thrilled to bring our audience this special interview session with such a multi-talented director. SHOOT editor, Bob Goldrich, will interview Alan about his film, television and branded content projects.
Alan has helmed helmed Terminator: Genisys, starring Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, which went on to gross $645 million worldwide.
These two blockbuster projects have come on the heels of an acclaimed body of television work. Taylor won an Emmy in 2007 for directing the “Kennedy and Heidi” episode of The Sopranos, and was nominated by the Television Academy two more times: outstanding drama for Game of Thrones (for which he served as a co-executive producer) and outstanding directing for Mad Men’s instant-classic pilot “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.” That pilot episode also earned him a DGA Award (he was nominated again the following year for directing season two’s “The Mountain King”).Taylor is now commencing work on Roadside Picnic, a television series based on the acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name.
Other celebrated series that Taylor has directed include Boardwalk Empire, Bored to Death, Nurse Jackie, In Treatment, Big Love, Rome, Deadwood, Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, The West Wing, Homicide: Life on the Street and Oz.
Alan is represented globally by Bullitt for brand-supported work, among them, recent projects for Game of War and Hearthstone.
