In collaboration with the Association of Actors and Actresses of Galicia (AAAG).

The online projection of actors, actresses and communicators in general is increasingly important in the industry, as it sets a new way of reaching the public. But how relevant should the number of followers be when it comes to choosing a cast? Do actors and actresses know how to manage online their brand? Is having a powerful online profile a gateway to get to work in the audiovisual industry? We will discuss these topics with actresses who work (or not) their online image, with an actors’ representative, producers and also with a digital communication professional who works with influencers and brands.

Participants: Lucía Regueiro (actress and presenter), Amalia Mato (representative and producer), Román Camba (Ingenio Interactiva) and María Vázquez (actress). Moderator: Iria Sobrado, actress, on behalf of the AAAG.
