Workshop guest, ANNA LAUREN:

Do you need to be an influencer on social media with upwards of 10k followers to make it as an artist? Anna Lauren, of Refinery29, a leading global media company, will tell you what she believes engenders success as an artist. With experience producing alongside a company that has hosted Hillary Clinton, Fergie, Yara Shahidi, a box on the SAG awards red carpet, and many social media stars and influencers, Anna Lauren's perspective on publicizing yourself on social media in tangent with the developing of artistry is invaluable. Her short film was recently nominated for an Annie (top animation awards ceremony globally) alongside films like Coco, and her experience working with world class directors and fellow producers offers insight into what the top caliber of producers look for in young talent. She's also been in the room pitching content to some of the biggest hollywood studios and production companies, and knows what it takes to get people on board with creative content and talent.
