Just one week after graduation with a BA in Theatre Arts and English Writing, Hannah Dhue ’15 made the leap for her dreams in Hollywood. Since moving to Los Angeles, Hannah has worked with Deluxe Entertainment Services, as well as Media Predict, based in New York City. Recently, she accepted a new position with Sony Pictures Entertainment on their studio lot. There, she coordinates Sony’s television mastering projects, managing their assets for distribution worldwide. She cannot stress enough how important it is to connect with professors, alumni and fellow classmates, as her adventures in La La Land simply wouldn’t be possible without those wonderful people. Not to mention parents, family and alumni donors who sacrificed to help send her to IWU. As she continues to grow her career, she hopes to have the chance to pay it forward in the future.
