Round table welcomes creative industry leaders

Brock’s Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film and the Development and Donor Relations office will jointly host a round table discussion March 22 at 5 p.m. in the Sankey Chambers.

The theme is: What do you need to know to break into the creative industries?

Participants include:

  • Casey Rovinelli: director of Digital Marketing, National Hockey League Players’ Association and online marketer whose clients include ETRADE, eBay, PayPal and Virgin Mobile
  • Brian Simpson: CEO, Keyframe Digital Production, producer of visual effects for numerous film and television productions, and animation including Pinky Dinky Doo, co-produced with Sesame Street
  • Ralph Mellanby: executive producer of Hockey Night in Canada who made numerous innovations in the sports media field, not the least of which was to release Don Cherry on an unsuspecting nation. He also was a producer of several Olympic games.

“These three immensely successful creative industry leaders will engage with students hoping to become the creative practitioners of the future and community members seeking ways to expand Niagara’s creative industry sector,” said organizer Jackie Botterill, associate professor of Communication, Popular Culture and Film.

Everyone is welcome. For more information, email jbotterill@brocku.ca.
