GREAT NEWS! Ben Illies, MN Grad, landed a gig working for the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board through a lead from Tim Anderson. He’ll be running live sound for a huge number of bands in Minneapolis, working up to 30 hours a week. It’s a great opportunity for him to earn some money while getting to meet a ton of new people every time he works. MMI ON THE TOWN….. On April 19th MMI instructors Nella Citino, Robert Gee and Tim Mickleburgh joined Hanah Jon Taylor in the Chula Vista Resort to act as judges in the 2012 SkillsUSA contest. They judged high school students competing in the categories TV and Video Production, Advertising Production and 3D Animation, and were impressed by the high standards of the winning entries. Hanah Jon Taylor was on hand to inform interested students of the opportunities available at MMI. VERY COOL! James Davis (JD) Minneapolis faculty, recently signed on to consult for the Major League Baseball team Washington Nationals; on a concert they are doing with mult-iplatinum country singer Dierks Bentley. It's June 2nd. OH AND DID YOU KNOW……. Chris Taylor, Gary Paul, Hanah Taylor and Stev Briggs visited River Grove H.S. for a career fair. We talked with students and gathered leads. Steve demonstrated IP control (over IPad and IPhone) of a networked media player that that can store hundreds of movies and play them across a local area network. We talked about all of our programs at Madison Media Institute and had a very enjoyable day. We make great things happen EVERY DAY!
