Filmmakers wear multiple hats, learn new skills under fire and juggle many jobs at once. We take these skills for granted as par for the course in getting a film made, but they also create a powerful arsenal of expertise that can lay foundation for other careers. The rise of independent film, TED Talks and reality TV have positioned story telling as a powerful skill. The ability to understand storytelling, being able to connect the dots between seemly disparate ideas, people or industries provide critical leverage for drawing audiences and influencing hearts, minds, opinions and behavior. In this session we'll talk with accomplished filmmakers from both the doc and narrative worlds who have successfully parlayed their skills into new and exciting jobs outside of the film industry.
