Track Nine

By: Emalia Hinden The last day! Today we went to ABC and learned about The Bachelor, which was interesting and terrifying (there are kiosks in the mall that can “see” your gender) and then I went to meet Justin by myself. It was so wonderful to talk to him and to learn about his life—he’s…

Track Eight

By: Emalia Hinden Today we went to ICM partners and met with Bryan Diperstein. I am meeting one of my family friends on Friday, Justin Lader, and he is represented by two agents at ICM. He told me to say “hello” to them if I could, but I did not see them. Bryan apparently is…

In Hindsight

By: Shayla Sales I wish it didn’t have to end! Hofstra in L.A. was everything I imagined it would be and more! I developed so many connections with such little time in L.A. There was always something to do, people to see, and places to be; there was not one dull moment. When I learned…

That’s a Wrap!

By: Sophie Kabel Our last day in L.A. was just as amazing as the first. We were able to meet with Jill Gershman who is the SVP of marketing creative at ABC Entertainment. Jill and her team showed us a great presentation on how they market shows like The Bachelor. We then went to the…

Just Another L.A. Devotee

By: Brittany McGowan As I write this sitting in an office with the outside feeling like -6 degrees, I think back to the beautiful 70-degree weather that we left on Saturday. Visiting Los Angeles for the first time with a mix of learning and networking (and a hint of touring) was an experience I’m never…

Hofstra in N.Y., for Now…

By: Sam Thor Our last day in L.A. was probably one of the most eventful. We started at ABC, where they gave us a rundown of their shows (through a very exciting sizzle reel) and showed us how the advertisements for shows like The Bachelor are created. It’s always exciting to see the ways technology…

Back to East Coast Cuisine

By: Kristen Kruspki It is the last full day in L.A. and you know what that means: the last food blog! Friday we were lucky enough to have lunch on the Walt Disney Studios lot following a meeting with alum Jill Gershman, SVP of marketing creative. We headed over to the Burbank Cafe and it…

Everyone is Watching

By: Mackenzie Carroll We kicked off our final day with a meeting at ABC Studios to speak with the SVP Entertainment Marketing Creative Jill Gershman and her marketing team. Together they walked us through their advertising campaign for the latest season of The Bachelor. Although it was very interesting, it was also a little scary…

Comedians in Cars Getting Canceled

By: Leah Lane Today was the “official” final day of our trip. I say “official” because our flight has been canceled due to the impending storm. Tomorrow might be another unofficial day.  Today we were able to meet with ABC and the people behind the marketing of some of our favorite shows. We learned about each of the various…
