Summer Blog Entry: Jen Matichuk Hollyyywoooodd

Hello Everyone!

Me and my friends Chloe and bridget in front of the house they film modern family!

Hope the summer is starting off well. Mine has been pretty eventful so far! Directly following the end of exams I stayed busy and worked on the Commencement musical, Hair, as the Head Rigger. The show went up for a successful four runs on commencement weekend so I was lucky enough to see all of the seniors on the last days, which was great, but also very sad. And made me realize I’m now a senior! AH! How did that happen??

job basically I read scripts and write coverage, answer phones, create concept boards, help put together film pitches, and general office stuff. It’s really chill and my bosses are a ton of fun. We play with nerf guns a lot. My other job is at Hutch Parker Entertainment in Santa Monica about a block from the beach. Very similar duties to the Hasbro job and super chill as well. And the gym I joined is across the street and it’s the best thing in the world. I have a new love of Yoga. I’m obsessed. And I’ve been catching some rays so I have a little color!

I’m looking forward to the rest of the summer – turning more and more into a
