About the Event

 How is a quality major motion picture made in the new millennium? That’s what award-winning journalist Meredith Jordan wanted to understand. She set out to answer this and after being on the set of Last Vegas, she focuses not on the cast: Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline and Mary Steenburgen, but on the real people of the movie industry behind the scenes—the production designer, costume supervisor, camera operator, editor, props department, the artists and artisans, production assistants and accountants, the pop star who wrote the score, the musical director, the orchestra manager, the director at the helm—all of whom stopped to explain how things happen along the way. Meredith Jordan is an award-winning journalist who spent 25 years working full-time for east coast-based operations like Dow Jones Co, Cox Communication and National Geographic, amongst others.
