Talk: From Lex to Hollywood
Speaker: Kelton Buchanan (’13) and Matt LaMotte (’00)
Friday 1 May, 3:00-4:00 pm in Northen Auditorium in Leyburn Library
This panel will consist of two W&L alums currently working in the entertainment industry: Kelton Buchanan ’13 and Matt LaMotte ’00. Kelton works as Community Manager at Fahlo, which is a unique, next-generation fan engagement platform that allows fans to get closer to the celebrities and brands they love most. Matt is the Marketing Director at Interscope Records.
This panel will provide students a look into a creative industry and will provide students with a look into how liberal arts skills can translate in the entertainment industry. Kelton and Matt will also discuss how to turn an internship into a job and use the resources you have around you to gain experience.
The goal is for students to come away with resources on how to reach out to alumni with questions and insight into two stories of how to go from Lex to Hollywood.
