Building an Entertainment Empire in New York City


Elizabeth’s life went to new heights as she left her small hometown in Georgia for the Big Apple this summer. She joined Emporia Entertainment, a production company that does everything from photoshoots to commercials to radio and more. Elizabeth was a video production intern with a focus in physical production, which includes cameras and lighting. She was able to gain a hands-on experience with being on video shoots for product reels, events, and their television show, Top Model Latina. Elizabeth took skills she learned at Mount Holyoke to navigate a new city and face a variety of challenges and responsibilities. Eventually, she was able to lead her own projects to create original content for the company as well as direct and film her own commercial. Elizabeth’s summer was an unforgettable experience, not only because of her immersive internship, but also because of the diverse group of people she met along the way.
