VIDEO: The Event That Started It All…
Back in February, our founder, Brittany Rostron, partnered with Cutter Connections to host a “Getting Your Foot in the Door” entertainment summit.The multi-faceted event started out with networking over breakfast and was followed by a keynote discussion led by Brittany on how to approach and develop an artistic career like an entrepreneur.
Afterward, attendees learned tips and tools for creating the most effective resume` and cover letter geared toward the entertainment industry from career coach Kathleen Castro. After a snack break and more networking, Hillary Cutter of Cutter Productions led a Q&A session with industry all stars Aubrey Smyth, Ashley Van Buren, Tiffani Gray, Meghan Dineen, and Tara McHugh. The day ended with, of course, more snacks and networking!
All in all, over 45 women gathered, not as competitors, but as a support system for one another. And from the looks on the faces of the young attendees as they eagerly soaked in the wisdom imparted by the more experienced but equally passionate industry professionals, it was clear that kickass is indeed contagious.
And Brittany caught the fever. It was after this event that she decided to dedicate her life full time to founding a not-for-profit at helping women break into and develop their careers in entertainment. Thus began the journey of forming FACES.
