Video Capture of "FROM FILM TO HEADSET - AN INTERACTIVE PANEL"

Last night’s panel “From Film to Headset” that I organized and moderated Film Fatales Shorts and MINY Media Center by IFP was a hit. It turned out to be everything a hoped for, a truly immersive panel in that we had a open conversation with our audience. Of course it was all thanks to the amazing panelist, who so generously shared their experience and knowledge: 

Lilian Mehrel
Adrian Vásquez de Velasco
Catherine Rehwinkel
Javier Molina
Amelia Winger-Bearskin

For those of you who missed the panel “From Film to Headset”, Javier Molina’s friend captured it so well and I am glad that I can share it with you here:
