WEOS-WHWS Alum Works On MIB3

Hobart alum Marlon Small's career has already started to take off in ways he never imagined. Recently, he was hired as a production assistant on the film, "Men in Black 3." In this role, he manages numerous behind-the-scenes logistics and organizes the actors' schedules through hair, makeup, wardrobes and on the set. He is also responsible for ensuring that random noises or lights do not interfere with the quality of the filming of the movie.


"All of my previous internships and work experiences have provided me with valuable opportunities, but I have never experienced anything like working for MIB3, a $300 million Will Smith production," says Small. "I have learned even more."

After graduation, Small landed two internships in the film industry. He worked with Grant Wilfley Casting, a major casting company on the east coast, and as a production intern on the film "Violet and Daisy," starring Alexis Bledel, Saoirse Ronan and James Gandolfini. Small also worked on a pilot for NBC/USA called "EDEN," as well as season four of "Damages."
"I received these internships through the help of a 2009 William Smith alum, so the connections I formed at HWS were crucial in pursuing my career," he explains.
Small's interest in the film industry leans more toward the creative side. With a passion for comedy, he hopes to become involved in writing, producing and development in the future.

"Working in production, I am able to read scripts before they are shot, so in a very ‘before and after' manner, I get to see what works and what doesn't, and why some things work and other things don't. It's been very helpful in my own writing," he says.

Small earned his B.A. in English and Media and Society. While a student, he was an employee at the Cellar Pub and also participated in intramural basketball.  Marlon also worked at WEOS and WHWS!!

Great job Marlon!

Wells '12 Published!

This summer, William Smith senior Lauren Wells had a poem published in Burner Magazine, a digital pop art magazine. The publication chose Wells' poem, "Mr. Barnard's Sanity Clinic for Fucked Up Individuals," for their Revolutionaries issue.                                        
Wells, an English major with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in media and society, was inspired to submit her work to the magazine because she admires the way in which they combine the visual arts with the written word.

"I had seen a lot of their past issues and thought it was definitely the type of magazine I would like to write for," says Wells.
Wells explains the inspiration and story behind her poetry is derived from her experience in Assistant Professor of English Karl Parker's Advanced Poetry Workshop last semester.

"Professor Parker had us writing in our journals every day, so this came from his class and his inspirational work with us," she says.

On campus Wells writes for Thel, the Colleges' literary magazine and The Herald, while also working for WHWS-FM as a host for her own radio show. She is also involved in the music scene around campus and in the Geneva community, planning concert events and booking shows.
Wells spent her sophomore spring semester abroad in London pursuing her writing interests. She will spend next semester in Perth, Australia.
