Schindler’s List – Universal Pictures

schindlers1 Schindlers List   Universal Pictures

At Porter Novelli I worked alongside Holocaust survivors on the video release of Schindler’s List.

As well as the customary video reviews, we carried out an awareness campaign following Spielberg’s ‘witness’ theme which runs through the film. It achieved coverage in all nationals and on all daytime TV shows.

Two years later, working on a BBC drama thriller I made friends with Caroline Goodall, who through her role as Oskar’s wife in the film had forged a friendship with Emilie Schindler.

I worked on other CIC titles including Greedy, New Eden and Heart and Souls.
