Newhouse LA Student Spotlight: May Babcock

I have wanted to participate in the SULA program since I heard about it my freshman year, so I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to attend this summer! I’ve never spent an extended period of time on the west coast before, so I have absolutely loved immersing myself in the lifestyle of Los Angeles while learning from incredibly knowledgeable industry professionals in my classes. In addition, my internship at Vibrant Penguin has been incredibly rewarding! As a production/post production intern, I get to participate in a wide range of projects. Day to day, I spend most of my time editing Tik Tok videos and other promotional content for Vibrant Penguin’s social media pages. I have also had the opportunity to be on set at the Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica to see how filming a project works in the real world! Overall, this experience has made me feel immensely more prepared both going into my senior year and entering the industry beyond.

May Babcock is a senior in the television, radio and film program at the Newhouse School.
