Apprentices in Action

A Day in the Life of Our Students

   Recording Connection graduate Emily Stamer aka Lucii is playing Thunderdome 2020!   Headlined by dubstep king Excision, she’ll be playing the 2 day music festival with Riot Ten, WOOLI, Trampa, Liquid Stranger, G-REX, YAKZ and more!   A graduate of Recording Connection for Advanced Ableton Production, Emily had the epiphany that led her to double-down on her music career while she was attending the Electric Daisy Carnival, watching Bassnectar perform:   “I saw Bassnectar’s performance and I literally just had a weird connection with it. I felt like I should be up there instead of watching…I really felt like I was destined to be performing.”     Learn more about her journey and experiences training with Recording Connection mentor Joey Paranoia in this issue of the newsletter.         Sending a big congrats to Film Connection for Film Production & Editing graduate Katz Carter (Los Angeles, CA) on the premiere of his suspense-thriller #FullMethod!

Getting from concept all the way through to completion has been nothing short of a life-changing experience for the director/screenwriter:   “It has been a long journey but on the 19th all the hard work is paid off with my 1st passion project. With my mentors Daniel & Bayou, the Dream Team directors, I was able to organize and polish my film to be seen in theaters.”     So what’s #FullMethod about?     “A key theme would be the depths to which one goes to attain fame/infamy. Matthew [the lead] has struggled as a working actor, and now that he’s landed a great gig, he’s eager to brag about his success to his old friends. He also sees the party as an opportunity to spark up a romance with his crush Liz…” but something else is afoot.
