Shannon Siegel

Working in the production industry for over ten years, I have partnered alongside various creative directors and editors who help bring shows to life. I initially graduated from Saddleback College, pursuing three Associates Degrees: Computer Graphics, Entertainment & Technical Theater, and Film Production, focusing on Post Production. I am now attending CalArts, pursuing my BFA in Experience Design and Production, focusing on media design.I thrive in collaborative environments, developing new skills surrounded by other artists and mentors who want to learn just as much as I do. Having a career where I have worked on projects as small as a local TV spot to nighttime spectaculars in China has been a blessing. You can find me involved in different roles, from production assistant to video editor, from a stagehand to a stage manager, learning new skills that help me understand the jobs of the people I collaborate with on other projects.The world is rapidly evolving, continuously giving us new stories and ways to tell them with ever-changing technologies. I want to learn how to hone my skills and bring parade floats, firework shows, concerts, and even an Olympic opening ceremony alive. Performance art is constantly on my mind, whether choreographing dance numbers to songs on the radio or staring at the booth at a show. I can not wait for the day that I get to stand in front of a room full of colleagues and say, “Let’s tell a story together.”
