Community Gathering on Zoom - register with the bright red reservation box to receive the Zoom link. These gatherings are a service for the theater community and are offered free for TRU members; we ask that non-members help keep us running by making a donation or joining as a member.
In the room: Louis Guerra, first assistant director; Jim Bigwood, film and TV producer. We'll look at the unexpected production challenges of shutdown, and the need to acquire new skills, as well as how shutdown pushed streaming into the spotlight and helped it gain greater significance and stature so that it now competes with theatrically released films in the major awards. We'll also include comparisons with the theater industry, and the differences in their business models, job descriptions and hierarchies.
