'Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché' Empowers at the 2019 Spring KCET Cinema Series

Support Provided By

Following a screening of "Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché," writer/director/producer Pamela B. Green attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond. This full-length documentary from executive producer Robert Redford is the long-overdue story of a true pioneer in early cinema and the world’s first female filmmaker, Alice Guy-Blaché. Born in Paris, she directed, wrote and produced over 1,000 films, experimented with synchronized sound, color tinting, interracial casting, special effects and founded one of the first film studios in America. Alice Guy-Blaché's accomplishments have been neglected for decades and even film historians have mistakenly attributed her films to others.

Pamela B. Green, originally from New York, lived most of her life in Europe and Israel and as a result, is fluent in English, French, Italian and Hebrew. In 2005 she founded PIC, an entertainment and motion design boutique based in Los Angeles, California. Green’s work ranges from feature film main titles, motion graphics, creative directing as well as directing and producing music videos and commercials. She is known in the industry for creating title sequences and story sequences using her knowledge of graphic design, animation, editorial and archival rare stock footage research.

Green recently founded Legwork Collective, whose “media detectives” find and obtain rights to unusual and rarely seen before footage, stills, audio and artifacts for use in feature films, documentaries, TV series, commercials and other industries outside of entertainment.

Nominated for an Emmy® for the documentary "Bhutto," Green has produced main titles, created and advised on internal story sequences and marketing campaigns for films such as the "Bourne" series, "Fast and Furious", "The Muppets" and several Marvel comic book franchises. She has also worked on films such as "The Cabin the Woods" and "The Kingdom." For television and streaming, she has created titles for "Supergirl," "The Flash" and "Quantico" among many others.

In addition, Green has creative directed and produced T.V. show and award show packages for, among others, the Academy® Awards, Billboard Awards, Critics Choice Awards and MTV Awards.
