Ringling’s Next Step Career Conference

Jerry Chambless, Illum’s Animation & Creative Director, has been asked to speak at Ringling College of Art & Design’s Next Step Career Conference.  The conference is held every two years & gives the students an opportunity to meet industry professionals & discuss with them the rigors of working in various artistic industries & what they need to prepare themselves for their future careers.

Being alumni of Ringling, Jerry was excited to take part in the weekends’ events.  He will be speaking on an Alumni Panel, discussing his career & various projects he has worked on.  Jerry will also be a guest critic on the Portfolio Review Board where students get to have their work critiqued & discuss ways to enhance their presentations.

On the last day, Jerry will team up with cinematographer & director, Mark Parry to discuss “The Versatility of Film” in a series of Round Table discussions designed to enlighten the students to the intricacies of the industry & enhance their perception of the career they are working towards.

Jerry states, “I am pleased to be a part of this conference & share with the students’ experiences I have had & skills I have learned while in this industry.  Furthermore it helps me give back to my college; my experience there was phenomenal & I met many great artists who share the same passions that I have.”
