This panel is an ideal setting for current students and recent graduates to learn and ask questions about breaking into filmmaking and media careers.
Panelists: Kayla Gladney, Kelsey Harrison Ianuzzi, Anissa Latham
Moderator: Jessica Chriesman
Anissa Latham is an Emmy Award winning director and producer born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. She also produces documentary content for Red Clay Media. Her short, Missing Magic (2021) screened at many film festivals including AFI Docs, New Orleans Film Festival, Sidewalk Film Festival, and DOC NYC. Her work centers around the experiences of Black communities, and has been supported by Firelight Media, Reel South, and the Center for Asian American Media.
Kayla Gladney gets to work with and be inspired by purpose-driven companies and organizations every single day, and she helps them better articulate their “why” before translating it into compelling social media content and beautifully designed websites.
Kayla majored in Film Production in college and worked digital marketing jobs, which gave her the technical skills that make her work possible. But it was her minor in African American studies and her deep love for her community that perfectly positioned Kayla to tell the stories of black-owned businesses and organizations through her company DawnG Media.
Kelsey Ianuzzi is an Alabama based filmmaker who fell into her calling by synthesizing visual art and creative writing backgrounds. She’s produced, shot, and edited video content for international brands and independent projects alike. For the last 4 years, Kelsey has worked full time as a documentary producer for Alabama’s PBS affiliate station, where she co-produces the ongoing arts series Monograph.
