The Undergraduate Media & Entertainment Club (UME) and AKPsi (AKPsi) is bringing back Media and Entertainment Week to Penn, a five-day series of events that will not be ruined by an impending hurrication. Although the list of fun events has not yet been revealed, Allison Shearmur, the former President of Production and Development at Lionsgate, will be giving the keynote speech.
¿What does this mean to you? Well, besides the fact that she initiated and oversaw the production of the movie The Hunger Games, a tragic tale of a young girl being called “Catnip,” she also worked for Universal, Paramount Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, and Columbia Pictures, among other Pictures. Not only will you learn the ropes of movie production, but you’ll also get a better sense of why Commons is important to society. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on November 12th at Huntsman Hall, room G06.
