Point Park University is hosting its semi-annual High School Media Day on Friday, March, 15, 2019.
It’s a day filled with hands on workshops, Point Park faculty and speakers from the media industry.
Our Keynote speaker this year is Chris Preksta. He is the writer/director of “Echo Torch”. He most recently directed the short film, Street Light Stories. Before that he created the online sci-fi series “The Mercury Men,” which premiered ont the Syfy/NBC Universal digital network. Chris is also the co-writer/director of the popular online sitcom “Pittsburgh Dad,” which has amassed over 72 million views. Chris directed the final season of the award-winning online sitcom “The Guild,” starring Felicia Day.
We think that the students will enjoy hearing about his career and his is also a Point Park alumni so he can speak to the education and opportunities that Point Park University has to offer.
