Caitlin Robinson is a creative producer and entertainment strategist. At Electric South, an incubator for African digital immersive content, she explores emerging technology’s influence on how stories can be told and how stories can reach audiences. Her work spans critically-acclaimed documentary films; investigative journalism for TV (BBC, Al Jazeera, and DStv); branded content (Spotify, Unilever and Pepsi); and new media. Her most recent project, WATERTIGHT (IDFA, 2017), is a documentary portrait series told through volumetrically-captured 3D prints. In addition, Caitlin has worked on the distribution of narrative film and documentaries at the Academy Award®-winning studios FilmNation and A24; directed grassroots marketing and distribution campaigns for indie films including CRONIES, executive-produced by Spike Lee; and led the distribution strategy for ZERO DAYS VR (Sundance, Tribeca 2017).
