Media, digital film program at Bronx Community College making way, preparing students for TV world
Look out Hollywood! The future of production is being molded at Bronx Community College in the Bronx.
Students who are part of the Media and Digital Film Production Program on campus receive a hands-on experience on everything, including television and film, to prepare for a career with the big leagues.
Former student Ingvar Denis is now a product of the program's success. Denis got to intern at Silvercup Studios, which is one of the largest film and television production facilities in New York City. Now, Denis serves as an adjunct college lab technician and hopes to inspire students to keep chasing their dreams.
"I was lost, and this program has steered me into a path that made me more of an adult by giving me a purpose and in that purpose, it's branched off into my personal life and made it better," said Denis.
The school will be hosting a film festival on campus on Oct. 26 as a way for students to showcase their creation to the community.
