So You Want to Work in Late Night

September 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Friday, September 25th at 4pm ET/1pm PT
Join us for the first installment of the So You Want To… series, a webinar series featuring recent Emerson alumni who are making their mark in the industries of your dreams. Up first: Late Night TV.
Millions of people tune in nightly to hear what Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, or their favorite Jimmy has to say about the state of the world. Late night programs simultaneously entertain and inform their viewers – blending together so many technical skills and areas of passions – from television production and politics to journalism and comedy. It practically speaks for itself why so many Emersonians pursue competitive summer internships and have post-grad dreams the size of The Daily Show desk.
And better yet, Emerson alumni work in all facets of what keeps these programs running every weeknight – from producing segments and writing cold opens, to overseeing graphics and manning cameras, to even being the person behind the desk, interviewing guests, with their name in lights.
Maybe you’re next!
Join us for a conversation with 4 recent alumni whose day jobs keep everyone up at night, as they answer your questions about the industry, their careers, and more.
In order to attend you MUST register through this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/so-you-want-to-work-in-late-night-registration-120538077635

Bright Lights Film Series: ‘Bedlam’

October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Through intimate stories of patients, families, and medical providers, Bedlam is a feature-length documentary that immerses us in the national crisis surrounding care of the severely mentally ill. Filmed over five years, it brings us inside one of America’s busiest psychiatric emergency rooms, into jails where psychiatric patients are warehoused, and to the homes — and homeless encampments — of mentally ill members of our communities, where silence and shame often compound personal suffering.

Directed by Kenneth Paul Rosenberg; documentary; English; 86 minutes, USA, 2019. A discussion with Rosenberg and producer Peter Miller to follow. D, POC, SJ

Presented as part of the Roxbury International Film Festival, with Boston Jewish Film, the Independent Film Festival Boston, and Reelabilities Boston.

October 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Based on the bestselling book by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of non-speaking autistic people from around the world.

It opens a window into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe.

Directed by Jerry Rothwell; documentary; English and Krio, with English subtitles; 88 minutes, USA and UK, 2020. A discussion with the film’s producer and subjects to follow. I, POC, D, SJ

When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened with losing his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms.
