A Day in the Life of Our Students

  

Recording Connection grad Connor Donald

Congrats to Recording Connection for Audio Engineering & Music Production graduate Connor Donald for getting hired at global event production company PSAV, where he’s working full-time as an audio/visual technician and he’s just 20 years old.   So far, the new job has enabled him to work shows with big talent including ZZ Top but that’s not all. Through his mentor, Connor was also able to play on the musical recordings for Miss America 2019.   Learn more in our interview with Connor.    

Nate Crockett and mentor Geno DiMaria framing shot for “Hindsight”

Congrats to Film Connection for Film Production & Editing graduate Nate Crockett (Charleston, SC) on getting hired on his dream crew! Nate recently told us all about it:   “I’m part of the crew on HBO’s new show called “The Righteous Gemstones,” which is Danny McBride’s new show…I finally got my foot in the door for what I’ve always wanted to do, which is be on a feature or TV show that’s narrative-based and with people that I’ve looked up to pretty much my whole life. John Goodman’s on the show. Being able to stand right next to him and help him with things, like get him water or food, just small things, but being able to do that is really surreal, and the fact that I’m getting paid for it is even more surreal, because I would definitely do this for free if I had to.”   And there’s more good news! The short film “Hindsight,” which Nate worked on alongside his mentor Geno DiMaria (Block One Studios), also a co-producer of the project just screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival!   Directed by Ian Kent, the film was shot on location in Charleston, South Carolina. It tells the story of what happens when a young, troubled white artist is forced to deliver Meals on Wheels for community service and forms an unexpected friendship of sorts with a blind, African American ex-Dobro guitar player.   Learn more about Film Connection for Film Production & Editing.    
Radio Connection student extern Lady Rocka Chi | Washington DC

Radio Connection grad Lady Rocka Chi

Recent Radio Connection for Radio Broadcasting graduate Lady Rocka Chi, who trained with Victor Akoko of VPS Media, has a zeal for learning and discovery that’s downright infectious. Turns out, that curiosity goes way back:   “This was a cool assignment. I reported the weather in sunny L.A and then in cold Boston…My mentor said I should smile [while] I’m reporting the weather and be friendly like I’m in conversation…   I always wondered how I would do at reporting the weather. As a child, I used to practice playing ‘weather girl’…I thought it was interesting on TV…Then, as I got older and wiser, I realized the actual process. They don’t even have that board in front of them. It must take some getting used to when it’s all green screen!”
