Visiting Writer Offers Tips

Mr. Steven Taub, of Steven Taub Productions, visited Smithtown High School East classes on November 24th to discuss his background and experience in producing, directing, and writing for television. He has done video work for PBS, Verizon Communications, Great South Bay Music Festival, Embracing Our Differences Program, and other venues that can be found on his website

He is a published writer, and spoke to our students about the importance of presentation, persistence, and politeness with regard to securing a job in this field. Ms. Shanian's Digital Media Arts class and Studio in Art class asked Mr. Taub pertinent questions regarding his career path, and the type of responsibilities involved in his work. Some students revealed that they hope to get involved in this creative field as well.
