EP 27: "Relaunching in the Creative Arena" with LeeAnn Dance
In this episode, Carol speaks with LeeAnn Dance, co-producer/director of “My Dear Children,” a documentary about one woman’s quest to learn more about her father’s past in Eastern Europe following World War I. A former CNN producer, LeeAnn took a 10-year career break and returned to work as a documentary film producer. LeeAnn explains her journey back to work including how her former career provided a foundation for her relaunch, her initial fear of learning new recording and editing technologies, doing some non-paid work to build her portfolio and a following, and finding a career that meets her and her family’s needs. LeeAnn also explains how the career break itself provided much-needed experience and perspective.
