Dreams do come true. That’s the news coming out of San Bernardino Valley College.
Six current and former Film, Television, and Media (FTVM) students have been hired to work as production assistants on the popular MTV show, “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out”.
Noah Donnelly, Leo Ritualo and Cage Hensley, and alumni Tachi Mitchell, Michael Contreras and Stephen Prater will all work as production assistants or “go-betweens” for the different areas of the set.
Lucas Cuny, co-chair and assistant professor of the FTVM program at the college, said these students have worked hard in the program and are ready for this opportunity.
“So much of our program and what the faculty and I teach has to do with giving our students practicum that gets them ready,” he said. “We don’t hold their hands; our students must get productions done as part of their grades. They thus face the real stress and challenge of a production. That practicum gives our students the confidence to go after these types of gigs.”
According to Cuny, San Bernardino Valley College is the only publicly-funded college in the state with an established career services person working specifically with media arts students.
