We are thrilled to welcome two new team members to Picture Motion! Please join us in welcoming our new Campaign Director in NYC, Julie Kohn, and DC’s new Campaign Coordinator, Charlie Crocker!
Julie Kohn – Campaign Director
Julie comes to Picture Motion with a strong background in engaging and activating audiences and driving social impact across film, television and corporate campaigns. Prior to joining Picture Motion, Julie was the Director of Business Development at branding and marketing firm DeSantis Breindel, where she used her expertise to help clients build and maintain corporate reputation and effectively communicate corporate stories, values and missions. Previously, she served as an Associate Producer on the documentary A Place At The Table, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and examined the hunger and obesity crises in America. After three years of working on the film side, Julie moved to documentary programming at the Tribeca Film Institute and coordinated screening events at A&E IndieFilms. Julie graduated from The George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs, where she received her B.A. in International Affairs and Geography. It is there that she honed her interest in public policy and social justice and worked on several political campaigns as well as at the United Nations.
Charlie Crocker – Campaign Coordinator
Charlie is the newest member of our growing Picture Motion team in DC. Prior to joining the team, Charlie spent time at The Raben Group, where he assisted the March on Washington Film Festival and produced marketing and campaign materials for the firm and clients, alike. During his time there, he was able to dive in his primary issue areas: gun control, LGBT rights and diversity in STEM. He also worked for the National Conference of Democratic Mayors, where he supported national coordination and outreach efforts, in addition to managing events for public and private partners. No stranger to campaigns, he worked on the research and communication teams for Greg Orman’s 2014 Independent US Senate Campaign in Kansas. Wherever he goes, Charlie commonly serves as resident nerd, as he also spent time working at Apple. While he calls DC home for now, he is an avid explorer. Originally from Canada, he grew up in Minnesota and developed his Midwestern charm, before studying in Italy for a year. Charlie graduated from Boston University with a degree in Political Science and spent two semesters interning and studying London, England and Washington, DC.
