Jennifer Zeidan ’09: From Al Jazeera to Lucasfilm

“After five years as a production engineer at Cisco TV and two years as a broadcast engineer establishing Al Jazeera's newest digital venture “AJ+," it was time to move from television to film. I am now a media systems engineer for Industrial Light and Magic, the visual effects division of Lucasfilm (Yes, we’re working on Star Wars!).  I also freelance as a broadcast technician for MLB Network and MLB.com. This past October, I spoke on a panel at the annual Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers Technical Conference and Exhibition regarding increasing diversity in entertainment technology and our paper was published in the latest SMPTE journal.”
