Happy International Women’s Day! Make sure to follow these OHIO accounts and engage with IWD hashtags on social media! Here’s a quote about OHIO’s Women in Media Industry organization from Marie Simpson:

“WIMI is an organization dedicated to inspiring, empowering, and connecting women and non-binary students. We have cultivated a community that treats everyday like International Women’s Day where we celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of those who are breaking barriers. We hope that everyone uses this day to listen to their favorite female artists, donate to women-run organizations/non-profits, and read about the gender inequalities women face in the music industry”

Meet Rebecca Popp! Rebecca is a third year animation student and the president of the OU Animation Club (OUAC). She developed a passion for the field from a combination of her grandmother teaching her to draw when she was young and the magic of storytelling.

At OHIO, Rebecca has had an internship with RADProductions and got an Honorable Mention with OUAC at last year's 48-Hour Shootout by leading the team to make their animation, "Ratatwoille." (That's a 4 minute animation done entirely in 48 hours!!)

Rebecca is looking forward to all that she will learn during her future career and watching the changes the field will go through!

Meet our student spotlight this week! ✨ Hunter is a senior Integrated Media major from Woodstock, Connecticut. He was the Director of the short Far Too Young for the OHIO-in-LA program in the fall 2020. During the program, he was a production and editing intern for Big Reel Media in Cumberland, RI. He also had the opportunity to work on a Hallmark film One Royal Holiday as a Production Assistant and Black Entertainment Network’s (BET) film Soul Santa as an Art Department Production Assistant. Hunter is currently working on writing a feature length screenplay adaptation of a book that he had presented as his final pitch project at the end of the OHIO-in-LA program.

“The MDIA school helped me get to where I am. They provided me with equipment and resources I needed to advance my filmmaking skills. In addition, Roger Cooper’s Business of Media course was also important as it allowed me to craft a proper media resume and cover letter which were instrumental in me being accepted to many of the opportunities that came my way.” #mdiastudents
