Media Arts alum breaks into national commercials, films and television shows

Michelle Caruso (2010) started as a Set PA (Production Assistant) on commercials, films, and TV shows, including Lifetime's “Drop Dead Diva” and Lionsgate's “What to Expect When You're Expecting.”  As much as she enjoyed set, she was more drawn to the Art Department.  Through networking she landed the job of an Art PA on Paramount Pictures' "Flight" starring Denzel Washington.  Upon gaining more experience working in the Art Department, she was able to join the film Union, IATSE 479.  She now works as an Art Department Coordinator and is also currently developing her own scripted projects.  Congratulations Michelle!
