This month we check in on some of our alumni and learn more about what our education department is doing in the classroom.
First up is Tribeca All Access® alumni Paola Mendoza who in the midst of building a successful career in acting and directing can now put author on her resume. She sat with us to talk about her debut novel, The One’s Who Don’t Stay, which is loosely based on her own life which we saw glimpses of in her acclaimed film Entre Nos.
Also a TAA alum, Ryan Koo (13:35) comes by to give us an update on his film feature film Manchild and the success he’s had releasing the prequel short film Amateur. He also gives some tips on how your work can find attention on the web.
And to close out this episode we chat with the very entertaining Philip Swift (28:21), who is one of our education department’s teaching artists. He gives us a glimpse at what he’s doing through the Tribeca Teaches® program as well as his own work.
