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 Variety article about how productions utilize aerial cinematography won second place at the 2021 Southern California Journalism Awards through the LA Press Club.  It was the first time an Artisans article has ever made it this far in the competition.  You may read it here.  

My work has been recognized consistently since the first year I began writing professionally.  My investigative article for Variety about social media influencers taking jobs from union set photographers was a finalist at the 2020 National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards in the same category I won in 2019.  You can read that article here.  I also earned finalist status at the 2019 and 2020 Southern California Journalism Awards with the articles listed above.

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.
