For many years, CCLA has been working to build a strong Cornell in Hollywood (CIH) community to rival other Ivy networks such as Harvardwood and Yale in Hollywood. Now, with the support of our Board of Advisers, composed of prominent alumni in Hollywood, and the support of Cornell's Western Regional Office staff and numerous individuals and departments on campus, we believe we are well on our way to achieving our goals:
1) to educate Cornell students who want to build a Hollywood career
2) to help students and recent graduates find internship and other career-building opportunities
3) to provide life-long educational and networking opportunities to Cornell graduates working at all levels in Hollywood.
CiH had a full house for its Film Finance Panel
Film Finance Panelists (l-r) Lawrence Antoine (moderator), Rob Fried, Alex Gartner, Michael Jaffe, Andrew Ruf, Brent Stone
Below is a list of what we are in the midst of accomplishing:
On-going series of seminars and panel discussions.
Summer Internships for Current Students. The Summer 2013 internships are now being coordinated. Applications are closed. Check back in the fall for information about the Summer 2014 program. For news about former interns now happily employed in Hollywood, click here: http://www.cornellclubla.com/article.html?aid=1025
Breakfast or Dinner Roundtables. Successful alumni offer guidance in their area of expertise to recent graduates and alumni interested in changing careers.
Campus Visits. Some Hollywood veteran alumni are eager to return to campus to show their completed projects and interact with students. We help with the arrangements.
Videoconference or Teleconference with a Cornell Class or Group of Students. An adjunct to existing courses on campus, this approach enables classroom participation by those alumni who cannot travel to Ithaca.
