The Maine Media Alumni Network is an extraordinary network made up of 35,000 people living worldwide. Our alumni are leading lives of purpose as photographers, filmmakers, book artists, writers, professionals and enthusiasts.
Through the Alumni Network, new opportunities to connect will revive the excitement that’s found on our Rockport Campus. This will be a space for new learning, old friendships, and fresh artistic ideas, sustaining the tradition of Maine Media long after your workshop, certificate, or degree program ends. The good news is that this Alumni Network will live on when we’re able to gather together again! We’ll continue to bring you content, networking opportunities, and (let’s be honest) parties well into the future.
Here you’ll discover news about events, lectures, classes and get updates on programs and presentations to keep you meaningfully engaged.
“Directing Commercials with Empathy“
With Jon Weiman
Thursday April 15th, 1pm ET
Commercial Director Jon Weiman talks about how he uses the soft-skills he learned from his therapist parents to guide his creative process. From the pitch, through prep, casting, directing on set, collaborating with the crew and editing, Jon will discuss the importance of empathy, collaboration, open mindedness and asking the right questions.
All Lectures are scheduled in Eastern Time
Most of our Virtual Lectures are recorded via screen capture, so if you couldn’t make it to the live event you can still watch past lectures here! All Alumni as well as past and current staff (Year-round + Summer) may retrieve their password to view this content by emailing [email protected].
