HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SPOTLIGHT ON FILMMAKERS LIVE!, IngleDodd Media‘s new event in their Behind the Slate Series, explored the talents behind the lens of some of the television and films that are shaping this year’s awards season at the iconic Hollywood Post 43 American Legion on Saturday, November 19th. Spotlight Live! featured artists and guild members who worked on “Bardo: False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths,” “Women Talking,” “Till,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” “Nope,” “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” “Stranger Things,” “Causeway,” “Hacks,” “Euphoria,” “Barry,” “Westworld,” “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,” Spirited,” “Bones and All,” “Thirteen Lives,” “Good Night Oppy,” “Welcome to Chippendales,” “Pam & Tommy,” “A Friend of the Family,” “Wednesday,” ” Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio,” and “P-Valley.”

The showcased panels highlighted their crafts, creative challenges, inspirations and interesting stories for awards hopefuls in film and television. The audience of over 350 were members of the various craft organizations who are awards voters.

“As longtime champions of filmmaking crafts and the labor groups behind them, IngleDodd Media created Spotlight Live! specifically to put focus on craftspeople ‘behind the slate’, many of which are feeling increasingly marginalized at big industry award shows. We created an elegant one-day event to allow these ‘unseen heroes’ across multiple disciplines to share the stage and discuss their creative processes,” said Dan Dodd, IDM Director of Sales & Marketing. “We’re absolutely thrilled with the support and solidarity these Guild and Society members showed for this inaugural event, and we are proud of our continued role in helping elevate their crafts.”

The all-day event spotlighted many of the numerous guilds that IDM represents including the Art Directors Guild, Cinema Audio Society, Costume Designers Guild, Locations Managers Guild International, Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild, Motion Picture Sound Editors, Production Sound & Video Guild, and the Society of Composers and Lyricists.  Members of American Cinema Editors, Casting Society of America, and Visual Effects Society were also featured.

Moderators included Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times contributor and film critic for ABC 7’s “Windy City Live”, Collider Senior Producer Perri Nemiroff, Next Best Picture’s Will Mavity, and Award-winning entertainment journalist Byron S. Burton.

The event included lunch hosted by HBO Max, and a “Martini Shot” cocktail reception hosted by STARZ. SPOTLIGHT LIVE! was also live streamed on Vimeo. You can watch here:
