APRIL GRIER

Producer/Director

Educator

I am a driven and detail-oriented casting professional with experience working on both bi-coastal film productions and children's television programming. I have a talent for organization, communication, and video editing, which I have honed while casting for projects such as The Burden, Sesame Street in the Communities, Betty Boop, and Ella. 

 

In addition, I have experience in producing and directing video programming, as well as collaborating with public relations firms for social media promotion.  As Creative Director for the Newark Symphony Hall, I was responsible for casting and directing music talent, writing scripts, creating promo videos, and collaborating with PR firms to promote virtual programs. I also have experience in guest booking, copywriting, and project management.
