Jacqueline Betancurt (Director of Media/PR)

Jacqueline has been working with Cool Hand Luke Productions for over a year now as head of their Media and PR department. She is of Dominican and Colombian descent and as ambitious as they come. Diversity is one of her top qualities, being able to adapt to any situation is what makes her such an asset to the film business as head of the Media and P.R. Department within Cool Hand Luke Productions. It has been exciting to say the least! We have traveled from coast to coast filming such wonderful, heart-felt stories.

The opportunity to shoot professionally was introduced to her some time ago and today she is a celebrity photographer. Her background in photography gave her the abilities to be able to move around the set and capture some of the most amazing moments in this historical monumental film.

She has met so many people in her short lifetime it seems as if she has lived 100 lifetimes! Coaching and mentoring interns and young people is something she has always done and loves. It fills Jacqueline with love knowing she is guiding the young new adults into the world of professional filmmaking. Her job as head of Media and P.R. at Cool Hand Luke Productions gives her a chance to give back while moving forward, while filling her heart with love and happiness in everything she does.

Whether she is coaching, mentoring, developing a business or photographing people, she always has the desire and ability to connect. Building relationships and networking has always been a focus for Jacqueline and because of that, it has allowed her to excel in business. She knows that long-term success requires long-term relationships.

If you love what you do so much it’s not work. It’s fulfillment, joy and happiness that make the days fly by! Makes you look back on your self saying “wow, where did all the time go”?
