PRLog - Feb. 24, 2013 - ATLANTA -- They promised it would be an event not to be missed and last night, Women in Film & Television Atlanta (WIFTA) made good on that promise. WIFTA hosted its annual Kickoff celebration Thursday night at Aurum Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia. This year’s theme was the Real Deal On Reality TV and “inquiring minds definitely wanted to know” the real deal.

According to WIFTA Vice President of Membership Glenda Giles, approximately 150 guests attended. They heard first-hand accounts about what it is like to work in the Reality TV genre from six TV veterans who’ve made a career out of working in reality TV. WIFTA’s Real Deal On Reality TV panelists included Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta Executive Producer Jennifer Holbach, Jarrett Creative Head of Development Tracey Baker-Simmons, Project Runway Supervising & Story Producer Anna Pousho, Real Housewives of Atlanta Executive In Charge of Production Joye Chin, Being Bobby Brown Executive Producer Wanda Shelley and Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids Director / Field Producer Vanessa Butler. Salt Run Productions' Suzan Satterfield served as the guest moderator for the evening.

For Kickoff attendee Tiffany Blake, the panelist definitely provided some eye-opening information. “I had a great time tonight and it was very informative to me. Being an actress and wanting to go into the production side, I really learned a lot...It is really important to own your own stuff!” After learning what Blake said about the event and taking in comments directly from event guests, WIFTA President Cheryl Jenkins was all smiles. “Tonight was just the beginning,” Jenkins beamed. “We are on a mission to really educate people about the TV / film industry, especially in this market, so they’re able to create work opportunities for themselves and so they’re ready to take advantage of opportunities that are offered to them.”
