In an effort to promote the website FreelanceArtProducer.com, we have started Freelance Friday. The purpose is to promoting the freelancers on the site so as to gain more attention for them and the others trying to get hired. So, from now on, when a freelancer on the site provides us with a blog post, we will promote it on a Friday.
Today, we are featuring Sheri Radel Rosenberg , an art producer, visual conspirator and writer. We love Sheri, not only because she writes for our blog, but because she always brings a sense of humor and friendship to everything she does. Oh yeah, and we love her dog Khan.
To learn more about Sheri, be sure to read on. And, if you think her post is interesting or the site is helpful, please do share it and let your art producer friends know about this new resource. And, if you do share it, let us know that you have done so. We have a little something for you to say thank you.
Where are you searching for photography or other content needs nowadays?
I look everywhere and anywhere- from my insomniac Instagram rabbit hole searches to photo blogs to promos I receive. Inspiration is everywhere, particularly if you can’t sleep. I look at design blogs, local art blogs, and a million other places to find the freshest content around.
What are you known for in the art buying/producing world?
I don’t think I’m known for anything. Maybe for my stealth production skills and my fashion sense, or my passion for creative discovery and my inability to say no.
Do you have a motto?
Never go with a hippie to a second location. That’s from an old episode of “30 Rock” and it’s so very true. Jack Donaghy knew what he was talking about.
How about a favorite place to produce a shoot?
I like going to random places I have no idea about, because after we are done I’m somewhat of an expert. I loved going to Mexico City and getting to explore it through our project- it’s fascinating to go to places you’ve never been to make great work. Oh and Tokyo does not suck.
If you decided not to art produce any longer, what would you choose to do?
Definitely a writer, or a fashion designer. or the new Peggy Guggenheim. I’d love to support the arts and throw wild parties at my villa in Venice. Come to think of it, I’d settle for Cobble Hill housewife/dog servant.
How do you describe your job to your mom or someone else not in the industry?
I don’t like to explain what I do to my mother, and to others I simply say I’m a producer to preserve the air of mystery.
What are some surprising facts about you that you would like to share?
I don’t like surprises.
What do you love about your job?
I love connecting great people with great projects. I love the creative process. I love a boozy wrap dinner. I love that I can wear jeans to work.
What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday?
Chillin’ like a villain in Brooklyn with my boo and my fur baby. This would include a barre class, a lot of coffee, and a long walk around the neighborhood. Later in the day, I like to read the New York Times (the print edition- I’m so retro) and cook a good dinner. I wish it was more exciting, but I’m a pretty low key lady.
