Monday Night Info Session: Talk to A Freelancer

November 20, 2017 — November 20, 2017

Monday / 5:30-6:30 p.m.


Join Cinematographer Brett Roberts and Producer Lara Cuddy for a discussion on life as a freelancer in Portland’s film industry! The presenters will start by sharing some of their work and experiences and then open up the discussion to attendees.

Brett Roberts has worked as a DP, Camera Operator, Director and more on numerous documentary projects for Vice, Viceland, and Vice News Nightly. Many of his projects make the most out of a small budget, including the independent film All Hell Breaks Loose (Cinematographer), the recent Neil Stryker and the Tyrant of Time (Camera Operator) and more than 50 music videos.

Lara Cuddy works as a producer and designer in a broad range of media including film & video, broadcast, print, and interactive. Her credits includes producing, line producing, and production management as well as post-production, promotion, and marketing coordination on independent short and feature film projects, commercials, music videos, PSAs, branded content, and episodic. Notable projects include the indie features Deep Dark (official selection Fantaspoa Film Festival 2015), and Birds of Neptune (official selection Slamdance Film Festival 2015, Winner Best Narrative Feature Arizona Int’l Film Festival 2015), as well as Tuff TV’s first original scripted series, Combat Report, and most recently, the critically acclaimed Portland-based digital comedy series The Benefits of Gusbandry.


Monday Night Info Sessions are a casual series of talks and presentations geared toward Northwest Film Center students and community members interested in hearing how local filmmaking professionals got to where they are today. Topics and presentations will vary each session as we try to gather a variety of experiences because the path to becoming a filmmaker is rarely straightforward!

Free! But let us know you’re coming and RSVP to Matthew Hunsucker, Northwest Film Center Education Programs Work Study Assistant:
