ENDORSEMENT: Emmy® Winning Producer, Michelle Fitzgerald

As a 20 year veteran of the entertainment industry and a three-time Emmy® Award winner, it excites me to be a part of the next wave of media production — that of transmedia. Through the University of Houston’s Transmedia Initiative, youth and adults can be trained in transmedia production and within the accelerator program, a selected group will also be given the opportunity to craft educational and family-centered entertainment so that they can stay in this region and build out their creative studios. It is time to see the media community thrive in Houston. That time is now.
