Submitted By Ryan Pun
Jasmin Denoga, a Union City resident attending SF State University student has landed an internship with Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences internship program is an extremely prestigious program, and has been hailed for more than a decade as one of the top ten internships in the country. Three of the 38 recent winners are from the Bay Area.
Denoga had the opportunity to work in CBS's production management in Los Angeles. At the network's digital remastering department, she converted classic shows such as Kojak, I Love Lucy, Twin Peaks and Hawaii Five-O into audio formats fit for Blu-Ray release.
She gave a lot of credit to SF State for helping her develop the necessary skills to maneuver in the industry and finding opportunities to use those skills.
After working at CBS through the summer, Denoga worked for KGO-Channel 7, and recently won the Bay Area Star Internship Award for her outstanding performance at the station. Aside from working for some of the biggest networks in the country, Denoga is also an active participant of SF State's own productions and other projects in the community. The radio and television major was the host of the variety show Under San Francisco last semester and is the producer of a student team creating an advertisement for YMCA San Francisco.
Denoga's professor, Miriam Smith, is confident that her star pupil will lead a successful career in the industry. "You look at our school's Hall of Fame; a lot of them come from the Broadcast and Electronic Arts (BECA) Department," she says. "I am sure that we will see Jasmin's picture up there real soon."
As for Denoga, she has also set up a future goal for herself. "I would love to work as a producer behind the scenes on the show Modern Family." Denoga would also like to encourage all the other students pursuing a career in television. "Don't be scared," she says. "The people you meet are the people that will help you in the future, so network, network and network!"
The history of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences dates to the earliest days of the television industry itself. When Syd Cassyd, its founder, first conceived of the organization, he envisioned a serious forum where all aspects and concerns of the fledgling medium could be discussed.
The College of Creative Arts at San Francisco State University offers diverse, world-class artistic education unmatched by any Northern California academic institution. An internationally acclaimed faculty teaches more than 4,500 undergraduate and graduate students from around the world in renowned programs in Art, Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts, Cinema, Dance, Design and Industry, Music and Theatre Arts.
