- WORKSHOP WITH “BENEATH THE HARVEST SKY” FILMMAKERS ARON GAUDET & GITA PULLAPILLY
Friday, APRIL 25, 3-5 pm NESCOM, Kominsky Hall
Award-winning filmmakers Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly will share their experiences as Maine-based artists and their innovative process of successfully making documentary and narrative films in the state of Maine. Their new feature film, BENEATH THE HARVEST SKY, had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and its US premiere will be at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film was acquired for release by Tribeca Films. Gaudet and Pullapilly were also chosen for Variety’s “10 Directors to Watch” list and signed by the talent agency, UTA.
Gaudet and Pullapilly also made the Emmy-nominated documentary feature, THE WAY WE GET BY, on the Maine Troop Greeters of Bangor, Maine. The film won 18 festival awards, played in over 60 theaters across the country, and aired on the critically acclaimed PBS program POV in 2009 and 2010.
Gaudet and Pullapilly will share their experiences in the research and writing, pre-production, production, and post-production process as well as their strategies for marketing and releasing BENEATH THE HARVEST SKY nationwide. In the past, they have spoken on panels for Film Independent in Los Angeles, IFP in New York City, Silverdocs in Washington D.C., the Toronto International Film Festival, and traveled to Australia to be film mentors for the HIVE LABS.
Following the event, BENEATH THE HARVEST SKY will screen at the Bangor Mall Cinemas, for the Maine premiere, where there will be a live performance from film composer/musician Dustin Hamman and the filmmakers will take part in a Q&A following each of the evening screenings.

This interdisciplinary program includes courses in marketing, advertising, public relations, graphic design, social media, and market research. Elective courses consist of video production, web design, digital photography, search engine optimization and business. Practical preparation allows students to work with actual clients to develop promotional campaigns, logos, posters, and advertisements to promote goods and services.
