The School of Communications, Webster University Communication Careers Week kicks off with special guest speaker Cady McClain. She is an Emmy award-winning actor, director, producer, and author. McClain will present “The Power of Audience Building Through Crowdfunding in the Digital Age.”
As media programming is distributed digitally, power is shifting toward media makers who can deliver their own audiences. McClain shares the exact process she used to raise $60 thousand in two months using over 600 unique contributions for her documentary film Seeing is Believing: Women Direct.
This event is open to students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the interested public.
McClain's new documentary, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct, on female film directors is being screened in the Saint Louis International Film Festival Sunday, Nov. 5, 7:15, at Plaza Frontenac Cinema.
Monday, November 6 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm
