THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING THE INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN FILM CAREER DAY ON FRIDAY, OCT 26.
One Reel is proud to be producing this inaugural event on behalf of the City of Seattle’s Office of Film + Music and our goal is to insure the event delivers a rewarding experience for everyone attending.
The support of professionals, like yourself, are instrumental to our success. Together you represent the wide range of “film” careers waiting to be discovered. In fact, you are living proof that you can find success in a range of areas. From animation, digital content creation, commercial video, feature film, VR/AR/XR and network television – and I’m sure we are forgetting a few!
In other words, we may call it Film Career Day, but that doesn’t really do what you do justice. Which is why we are so thrilled to have you among our first group of guest speakers to share your story.
We are confident that yours will help to inspire others to dare to follow in your foot steps!
Hopefully, this packet will help to support you in this goal. If we have got it right, nearly all your initial questions should have been met with answers and any concerns we have should become clear when you’ve had the chance to submit your responses back to us.
To accomplish this, we are asking you take a moment to let us know what needs you may have for your panel,, or if we can add you to the head count for lunch. And everything in between we have to do to get us there!
It shouldn’t take long and once you have filled in the blanks, checked off the boxes and submitted your acceptance of the terms, along with a photo and short bio, we’ll have everything we need to insure your confirmed participation in Film Career Day has everyone buzzing with excitement.
Our goal is to receive responses back by Monday, October 15, 2018, but we realize that’s a pretty sharp turnaround! If you are able to accommodate this, we’d be grateful. And if you get in the weeds, no worries! We’ve all been there. Just shoot us an email to let us know when you think you can get it over to us and we’ll look for it then.
In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding your participation we haven’t addressed here, feel free to give us a call:
Each panel consists of three film professionals and a moderator who will provide a brief statement on the panel topic before introducing the panel of speakers, asking each to share their thoughts (3-5 minutes) on the panel topic.
This is generally followed with a series of questions from the moderator or introduced by the audience.
Additionally, moderators are responsible for keeping the conversation “on topic” to insure that no one person dominates the discussion.
We thank you for sharing your time and experience with the next generation of filmmakers!
As previously mentioned, our goal is to receive formal confirmations from everyone by Monday, Oct 15, along with a couple of additional items that are essential to promote your participation: Your bio & a photo..
Here’s an outline to help guide you through it:
STEP ONE: YOUR PROMO PROFILE
Please send us a current photo/headshot
Please send us a short bio about yourself (60-90 words)
If you need a frame of reference, with details and examples for creating your very own personal promo materials, simply, follow this link to view / download: ALL ABOUT YOU

Once you have your photo and bio ready to submit, please email these to:
STEP TWO: RESPONSE & CONSENT
