Welcome! I’m Zoe Hewitt, an award-winning freelance reporter who also moderates live events. It’s nice to meet you!
My Variety article about productions filming in violent areas won first place at the 2019 National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards through the LA Press Club. It was in the feature story under 1,000 words category and is the only time that an individual article from the Artisans section has ever won. You may read it here.
My investigative article for Variety about social media influencers taking jobs from union set photographers is currently a finalist for the 2020 National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards in the same category I won last year. You can read that article here.
I also earned back-to-back finalist status at the 2019 and 2020 Southern California Journalism Awards.
Check out my awesome orange vest and hard hat! This photo is from an exclusive behind-the-scenes visit to Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge six weeks ahead of its opening; I wrote an article for Variety about the design process. You may read this or any of my other Variety stories here.
