Name: Susanne Pinedo
What is your current project?
I’m a publicist for the theatre and film industries, and am currently working on two projects. I’m doing the publicity for the documentary film, “And Scene…A Woman’s Journey to Walk Again,” produced by Casting Director and Indie Film Producer, Liz Ortiz-Mackes and her production company, I Ain’t Playin’ Films. Mrs. Ortiz-Mackes has also written a book about audition preparation for actors, “Ace Your Acting Audition, Second Edition: Using Iconic Specificity and Other Surefire Techniques” and I have the great honor of promoting it, as well.
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
One of my main focuses is to conduct as much advocacy and activism as I can through my work; social causes are very important to me. “And…Scene” is about actress and wheelchair dancer, Jamie Petrone and the narrative dives deeply into the themes of disability, diffusing stereotypes and pursuing what you love to do regardless of any obstacles. This film depicts and conveys so many important messages that are universal and I have made it my mission to help tell this story of courage and truth.
What’s next for you?
I have recently begun providing publicity consultations to voice over actors through Edge Studio, a leading training institution for the voice over industry. I’m very excited about this opportunity and look forward to this new journey.
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
My mom is a constant well of inspiration and so much of what I do is fueled by her. She came to this country as a single mom and not speaking the language and was fearless. Every day she tells me to do what I believe in and makes me happy. And I do:)
