Fifth Annual Hall of Fame: Day Two Preview

Industry Leaders, VIPs & Celebrity Guests at Full Sail Hall of Fame

We’re right in the middle of Full Sail’s Fifth Annual Hall of Fame Week, but things are just getting started. Tomorrow there will be more than a dozen on-campus panels featuring industry experts, current and past Hall of Fame inductees, faculty members, and other special guests, covering topics that will appeal to students from across all degree programs. And of course, our Hall of Fame Music Festival continues with more great performances on our Backlot. Check out some of the Day 2 highlights:

  • Actor, director, and producer Rob Schneider will discuss his career and his new independent series, “Real Rob,” which will begin filming this spring at various locations, including right here on Full Sail’s soundstages.
  • “Film Festivals 101,” an inside look at the business of getting your films showcased to a festival audience featuring a panel of Film faculty members as well as Robin Cowie (Indaba Media Capital, LLC) and Dan Springen (Orlando Film Festival).
  • “Getting the Gig: Creating a Powerful Portfolio,” featuring 2013 Hall of Fame Inductee Kim Alpert as well as Hall of Fame grads Culley Bunker and Jayson Whitmore.
  • “A Conversation with Robert Margouleff,” the man who helped design and construct the TONTO synthesizer, an instrument that was prominently featured on Stevie Wonder’s groundbreaking ’70s albums.
  • “Mad Pad Mashers: Maximizing Your Beatmaking Tools in the Studio and Onstage,” a discussion/demo with electronic music innovators Jeremy Ellis (producer/recording artist) and Recording Arts grad Glen ‘DiViNCi’ Valencia, Jr. (Solillaquists of Sound, Ms. Lauryn Hill).
  • “The Greatest Console Generation?,” an in-depth discussion between game industry veterans (including Hall of Fame inductees Jameson Durall, Chance Glasco, and Cordy Rierson) about the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U consoles.
  • Meet and Greets on the Backlot featuring several current and previous Hall of Fame Inductees, including Culley Bunker, Susan Rose, and more.

NOTE: Students should line up for each of the panels via the Backlot, not through the EB Lobby.
