Roundtables in Media Innovation
Our “Roundtables in Media Innovation” are designed for experienced alumni to promote networking and collaborative learning. Held at locations around the U.S., the roundtables allow our alumni to share their work and challenges with each other, and for faculty to present their research to a more sophisticated audience.
In February 2011, the first event was held in Los Angeles on emerging trans-media platforms and genres. About a dozen experienced alumni shared their experiences with innovative projects such as shooting Avatar, creating an animated web series for Tom Hanks’s production company, and creating programming for the next generation of consumer audio and video devices.
Since then, we've had another event in LA on "rebooting" your career, one in Chicago on new models for leadership, one in Washington, DC on intellectual property, one in NYC on Adventures in Social Media, and a recent breakfast meeting in NYC this past December on how we consume media content.
Our next Roundtable will be in Los Angeles on the afternoon of Friday February 1, 2013 on "Screens: How We Watch Now". Professor Elisabeth Nonas will lead the discussions and alums will talk about their current initiatives in creating sports, entertainment, and promotional content on big and small screens. Seating is very limited to keep the conversation interactive and intimate. If you're interested, please register now.
At this event, we will also introduce Bob Regan, our new director of the Kesh Center, and Dean Diane Gayeski will share some exciting updates on the Park School.
