Film and Media Careers – Barbarella Fokos

It could be a family trauma, or high fashion, or therapeutic gardening – whatever the theme, young filmmakers are tapping into their personal stories guided by my guest on this episode of Future Groove. Documentarian Barbarella Fokos nurtures aspiring creatives in high schools as they learn to create with confidence and consider careers in the entertainment industry. They’re telling stories visually by establishing a unique point of view and exploring narrative techniques, and then sharing their work with family and friends, all at Hollywood’s doorstep.
