Realscreen has confirmed an A-list team of mentors who will be paired with a selected finalist to provide guidance and feedback to aid the mentees in their professional development. Mentors confirmed for the 2019 Pathways Mentorship Program are: Thom Beers, partner, BoBCat; Jenny Daly, president, T Group Productions; Stephanie Drachkovitch, president and co-founder, 44 Blue Productions; Sara Geater, chief operating officer, All3Media; and David Shadrack Smith, founder and president, Part2 Pictures.
“Talent is the lifeblood of our industry, so nurturing the development of promising documentary makers and non-fiction creatives is vital,” says Sara Geater, COO of All3Media and one of this year’s esteemed mentors. “Unscripted is a key part of the All3Media portfolio so I’m especially happy to be part of this mentorship program and I’m really looking forward to meeting and sharing experience with the mentees at the Realscreen Summit.”
“We were blown away by the caliber of applicants last year, and so grateful to the leaders who came forward as mentors,” adds Claire Macdonald, VP and publisher, realscreen. “This program was a great success out of the gate, and we are very pleased to partner with All3Media for the second year.
