Tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 19th, Magnet CEO Megan Cunningham will participate on The New Patrons: Earning a Living With Corporate Video Content panel hosted by the New York Women In Film and Television organization. Along with three others: Anita Allison, a Brooklyn-based independent film producer and Executive Producer at Bain & Co., Ina Burke, the Executive Producer of Branded Content at Digitas, and Elizabeth Gay, Executive Director of Production Services at JPMorgan Chase & Co. (and moderated by NYWIFT board member Esmée Einerson, the Digital Media and Content Producer for J.P. Morgan Asset Management), Megan will discuss her experience and answer questions about her leadership role and success in the corporate video space, specifically in regards to digital and self-publishing developments within the industry.
The event description summarizes the current corporate video climate as follows: “With audiences moving from traditional outlets to digital and social media, brands are increasingly playing the role of producers and publishers. Somewhat like the art patrons of the Renaissance, brands are utilizing the skills of creative talent to tell their story in compelling, innovative and creative ways. For creators, this shift opens new possibilities as they seek to obtain the funding necessary to realize an artistic vision.”
The event will be held at JP Morgan Chase One Chase Manhattan Plaza, 28th floor. Photo I.D. required for entry and you can register HERE.
