Join us for a conversation with filmmaker and artist Ja’Tovia Gary.
A filmmaker’s creativity is so unique to the individual and being able to create a vision that appeals to audiences and at the same time allows you to express that creativity while staying authentic to yourself can seem daunting and unattainable. However, it doesn’t have to be. You can have both an authentic vision that you don’t compromise and seek an audience that understands and celebrates your work.
Join us for a conversation with filmmaker and artist Ja’Tovia Gary who will speak about how she looks to create work that is authentic to her creative vision first and foremost and how you can appeal to audiences without sacrificing your artistic integrity. Attendees will walk away with the confidence to pursue their own authentic visual work and know that there are audiences out there ready and willing to view it.
