The most amazing opportunity I’ve received in my studies was the chance to work at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness for two summers in New York City. Working under three of the top commercial producers in the country taught me an incredible amount about the business of television, and the business of working with people.
Small Things is an example of work I was tasked with doing for the 2016 Small Things Big Impact company-wide campaign.
At the beginning semester, my Advanced Television Studio class decided to create a channel full of various and exciting types of video content. Each student was responsible for producing at least one video project for the channel, as well as taking on different roles in a studio environment.
I’ve been lucky enough to take on many different roles within the studio production. I was the co-head of social media, as well as the primary editor of video content. Here are some highlights:

For my Television Studio Production class, our assignment was to find and interviewer and subject to interview, then compose questions and organize all aspects of production for the three camera shoot. I directed the shoot, and though the quality of the video is poor due to it being recorded on a tape, then digitized, Ms. Tychostup is a fascinating person I was lucky to film.
