Coordinated My First Content Shoot
I coordinated my first and second social media content shoots with the casts of Hamilton and Hadestown on Broadway. We partnered with content creators like Lea Motion and Erick Hercules to come to the theatre during a 4-hour window and capture content that would be released for the next two quarters.
I coordinated with stage management, company management, the wardrobe departments, and talent to create a schedule that included 4 stations that actors rotated through. Each station had a detailed schedule of exactly how long each person would be there and what would be captured. That list was then turned into a content calendar that outlined the roll-out of each video or photo based on key dates and the campaign strategy. Read more about it in my portfolio.
