Tomorrow starting at 9 AM PCT, I will be taking over the Oscars’ snapchat in honor of the Academy Gold Program’s graduation ceremony. Along with being elected as the student speaker, I will be giving an inside view of the closing today for this revolutionary program. Make sure to add the Academy’s Snapchat: Theacademy to see the full story.
The ceremony will include recognizing interns from across 20 of the most successful companies in entertainment like Disney, HBO, FremantleMedia, Fotokem, Technicolor, Warner Bros., and many more. The Academy will also announce the mentor pairings for the Gold interns. Each of the 68 Gold interns will receive a mentor.
Mentors are Academy members, many Oscar winners, who have volunteered to offer their time and expertise about breaking into Hollywood. Along with having mentors, the soon to be alumni will be invited to continue to attend Academy screenings. For those interested in fellowships and contests, the Academy will waive the fee for former Gold interns to enter contests.
Tomorrow is sure to be an amazing ceremony, and I hope you can follow along. The Academy’s Snapchat is theacademy .
