Melanie Trup

AAS - Film 

Melanie was recently selected to be a Camera Operator for the entire Miss Amazing show. Miss Amazing is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to build confidence and self-esteem in a supportive environment. Melanie contributed a lot of support throughout the show, since it was just her and staff member, Brittany Baustista, who volunteered to film the event here in Chicago. Melanie also had the opportunity to meet the Executive Director/Founder of Miss Amazing, Jordan Somer.  
 
Congratulations Melanie! Job well done!

ALUMNI HIGHLIGHTS

Justin Wagner

Animation & VFX 

 

Justin is a 2016 Animation & VFX graduate who is currently an Associate Artist at NetherRealm Studios (WB Games). We asked Justin a few questions and here's what he had to say! 

 

What do you like most about working at NetherRealm Studios?

The thing I love most about working at NetherRealm is the freedom to bring my creativity to life and to have the opportunity to work with all of the super talented artists that work here.

 

What piece of advice do you have for TFC candidates currently job searching?

Job searching is very overwhelming, but I would say the best tactic to use during the job search is to try to talk to as many people as possible. Submitting a resume can only get you so far. Send emails and even phone calls. Connect with recruiters on LinkedIn and maybe send a quick "Hello" message. You are trying to show your ambition and stand out to your future employers.
