A Summer of 25 Concerts and a Great Deal of Experience Gained


Aren’t you supposed to have fun in the summer? This summer I did exactly that. I worked for BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn, a summer-long music festival run by a non-profit in Brooklyn, New York, as a lighting production intern. One of my favorite parts of my day included running the follow spot during shows to light up Grammy winners and musicians from all over the world. I learned about how much work goes into putting on concerts and the amount of hard work required to make the shows look and sound incredible. I am a double major in Film Studies and Studio Art and want to work in the film industry after graduation. I used my art skills during my daily tasks and then realized that most of the work I did this summer directly relates to the technical portions of filmmaking.
