And…ACTION! Hopkins in L.A.

It’s every aspiring filmmaker’s dream—to be in Hollywood networking with producers, directors, screenwriters, and others in the industry.

For 10 Krieger School seniors, that dream came true in January. Every year during Intersession, a group of undergraduate students from the Program in Film and Media Studies travels to Los Angeles for five long but exciting days meeting with studio executives, television writers, agents, and other professionals. This year the group met with executives from Warner, Disney, DreamWorks, CBS Studio Center, and Sony. They also visited JHU alumni working at AppleTV, HartBeat, Netflix, and other production companies. Linda DeLibero, special advocate for alumni and outreach, explains that the trip enables students to make valuable contacts and learn about the industry.
