CSU Bakersfield Professor Selected for Television Academy Foundation’s 2018 Faculty Seminar Program

Jeremy B. Warner, assistant professor of digital media at California State University, Bakersfield has been selected to participate in the Television Academy Foundation’s 2018 Faculty Seminar Program. Members of the Television Academy selected 25 professors from colleges and universities nationwide to participate in the prestigious program.

“I consider it a great honor to be selected for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Faculty Fellows Seminar,” said Jeremy Warner. “My goal upon my hire this Fall was to start giving students access to the entertainment and tech industries, which are the industries where I previously worked.  I believe this is not only an opportunity for me but opens the door for CSUB students to networking and securing positions in the entertainment industry.  I know Bakersfield has attracted a great deal of film and television production, and I hope this leads to Kern County securing jobs in the field and bringing more of the film and television industry here.” 

The faculty fellows will gain the latest information on the television and content development industries from top entertainment professionals during a weeklong Southern California seminar from Nov. 5 through Nov. 9.

"Since 1987, the Television Academy Foundation has provided professors from U.S. academic institutions the opportunity to learn from working television professionals in Los Angeles,” said Executive Director of the Television Academy Foundation Jodi Delaney. “The Faculty Seminar provides an immersive experience that is designed to create and sustain unique ties between media and teaching communities, which enriches students, educators, and the industry alike."

The seminar will include panel discussions with broadcast and cable networks’ programming and scheduling executives, legal experts and cutting-edge content creators. Private studio tours and trips to top Hollywood production facilities to meet with producers, observe production, and get first-hand updates on the latest in television technologies are also part of the program.

First launched in 1987, the Foundation’s annual seminar offers faculty a comprehensive program designed to enhance knowledge and in turn enrich learning environments.
