"When your student Teresa Bryant came to me wanting to be a Location Manager I knew I could help," explains Tyrone Dixon of Dixon/Caine Productions in Los Angeles.

"After only 6 months in the program, Mark Nelson has been doing Digitizing and Editing for our feature film that is currently in post production," reports Jim Andre of Film Branch in Chicago. "The training and knowledge he gained with us could have never been matched in an ordinary film school environment. We look forward to working with Entertainment Connection again in the near future!"

Bryan Hickox, president of Bryan Hickox Pictures in Jacksonville, Florida notes: "I have hired my second Entertainment Connection student, Pam Wiselogel, to do our in-house Digital Editing on an Avid. The first was Mark, who works for us as a Producer. I still would like to know what screening process you use to obtain your trainees, but whatever it is, keep it up! I look forward to receiving your next candidate."

 

"The apprenticeship (externship) I had at Dawsons Creek and the training I received have landed me a full-time position," reports Amy Gill, a Entertainment Connection student from Wilmington, NC. "Thank you!"
