June 4, 2020-- District students studying media and filmed received special instruction last week from a prolific guest speaker.
Jennifer Hellman met with more than 40 district students including many from High School East’s TRSTV studio to discuss her career and experience in the entertainment industry. Over the course of her 27-year career, Hellman has specialized in liaising between musicians and corporations, technicians and producers to create and execute a seamless show flow. She’s done seemingly everything from managing music producer Clive Davis’s annual Pre-Gammy gala; to the annual NYSE Christmas tree lighting; to the 9/11 Tribute in Light.
District staff and administrators including TRSTV’s Chip Phillips and Kyle Austin, as well as Supervisor of Educational Technology Tiffany Lucey joined students on the call to gain some insight.
