GalsnGear Interview 2


#GalsNGear is the brainchild of WIFV Advisory Board Member and Past President Amy DeLouise. “We wanted to bring visibility, tools and information to women behind the camera and in the edit room. With 90,000 attendees and vendors from every facet of production, NAB was a natural partner for our first outing of this venture to connect women working in the trenches of media production to the best creative tools for filmmaking.”
