I have recently learned about so many amazing gigs that our students have booked that I decided to dedicate a post to it! Check out all of the cool things that your peers are doing:
Alexander is going to make his television debut this fall! In addition to his amazing abilities as a performer, he is also a very skilled chef and now the whole world will know. Alexander has made it to the Top 24 young chefs debuting in the new MASTERCHEF JUNIOR airing this fall on FOX. We don’t know how far he makes it, but we are all crossing our fingers! Check out the show’s FB page (featuring clips and photos of our very own, Alexander) and don’t forget to watch the premiere on Friday September 27 at 8pm on FOX!

Jackson Hill has a few projects coming up this fall. He was cast as a lead in the new independent short film, FOURTEEN SEEDS, coming out soon! He also just played the lead, Young Justin Henry, in an episode of CELEBRITY GHOST STORIES – THE JUSTIN HENRY STORY airing on the Biography channel in October as well as shot two Columbia student films–THE GREAT KEVINI and THE BAPTIZM OF JOSHUA COHEN.
The short film, MASK, starring Max Plush, was just chosen as a Top 20 Finalist in the Canon Project Imagination Contest. They are now waiting to see if the film makes it to the Top 5 finalists, which we hope it does! Good luck, Max! He also just received some great reviews for another short film that he starred in.
