During Covid-19 I found that many of my clients wanted to broadcast LIVE to continue to reach their followers and clients. Together, we broadcast LIVE events and presentations on YouTube, Facebook and Zoom. I worked with Jean-Michel Cousteau to create the Ocean Futures Society Virtual Film Festival on the Eventive festival platform. I created the Festival webpages, uploaded films from his library and planned LIVE events with Jean-Michel and his guests.

As the Festival director and LIVE event moderator, I enjoyed the opportunity to bring Jean-Michel and his filmmaker colleagues together to have discussions about the films. We learned so much about each film and at the end of each event the panelists answered questions from viewers. It was fascinating how this technology allowed people to take part from many different countries across the planet.
