WCCDP 2020 Top Ten Finalists

On August 11th, 2020, we announced our top 25 Semi-Finalists for our inaugural Women of Color Commercial Directing Program (WCCDP).


Over the past week, we conducted one-on-one interviews with each of our candidates and offered constructive feedback on their pitches. We then gave our semi-finalists an opportunity to make adjustments to their materials and resubmit them for final consideration.


Narrowing down our 25 semi-finalists to 10 finalists was not an easy task and we are so grateful to every woman who submitted to the WCCDP. We were blown away by the amount of talent and hard work that went into each pitch deck and script and we are confident that many of these women will find success in the world of film and television.


After reviewing the updated materials, we are excited to announce our 10 finalists that will move onto the next part of the program where they will be reviewed by our incredible panel of Finalist Judges.


So without further ado, we are proud to announce the 2020 WCCDP Finalists:
