Independent films are a product of vision and passion, but also a business endeavor that often comes with long hours and a lot of time on the road, residing in hotels as well as shooting in remote localities. Fire TV will bring the Cut’s popular column and event series “How I Get It Done” to O.P. Rockwell for a panel in which some of today’s female visionaries will share their perspectives on how to balance work and life, where they find inspiration in the workplace, what fuels their creativity, and more. Marking the Cut’s second live event at Sundance, the panel will be moderated by the Cut’s senior editor Kerensa Cadenas, and will include CNN Worldwide’s EVP of talent and content development Amy Entelis, HBO Max’s head of original programming Sarah Aubrey, writer and director Dee Rees, and actor Zazie Beetz.
