The Prime Time TV Club held its annual “Foot in the Door” night where five recent alums told students the inside story on how to land that all-important first job in film or TV.
The alums were:
- Molly Wilson, Asst. to the Executive VP, Warner Bros. Television
- Miles Leicher, Asst. to the Writers, Real Time With Bill Maher
- Melissa Brown, Assistant Editor, CSI
- Andrew Lewis, Development assistant to Jason Reitman
- Daniella Beintema, Producers and Director’s assistant on several Disney features
Advice not to miss:
- Always be learning, improving, adding new skills
- Every job and task is an audition, a chance to show you’ve got what it takes
- People skills are absolutely crucial
They had many other great tips and keys to success…but you’ll have to come to Chapman and attend our next Foot in the Door night to find those out!
