Behind the Scenes with TV Pros: Industry Networking Event for Aspiring Young TV Professionals

Presented in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment.

This event is for high school students seeking to learn more about television/film/media production here in New York, from the professionals who make it happen behind the scenes. Attendees have the opportunity to meet with TV professionals (line producers, assistant directors, script supervisors, production managers, art directors, production designers, grips and camerapersons, gaffers and electricians, wardrobe supervisors, set designers, prop masters, editors and post supervisors, sound mixers, animators, location managers, visual and special effects supervisors) in ten-minute group meeting sessions to learn more about possible careers in those fields. This workshop is free, but reservations are required.
