In an era where kids and families have screens in every room and in their pockets too, providing children with engaging educational content has never been more important. Fortunately, our guest this week is here to provide insight on making quality content for a younger audience. From producing for Sesame Street and Nickelodeon, to helping launch into new development at Baby First TV Sprout, and Minno, and now running her own production boutique Pixel & Pebble, Livia Beasley has done it all. Regardless whether you’re an educator, writer, producer, or filmmaker, this talk will jumpstart your imagination and inspire you to write and produce engaging media for the little ones.
Screen Time is a bi-monthly(ish), hour-long online series that features guests from all across the screenwriting and filmmaking industry. If you have wi-fi, you can join us from anywhere in the world for presentations, discussions, and interviews with industry professionals. It’s free for annual members; pay-what-you-can donation for guests.
