September 8, 2021 -- Santa Monica College's (SMC) Business & Entrepreneurship Series this month will offer a behind-the-scenes look at television production and explore how companies shape their work environment.

Both presentations in the series are free and will be held online as live virtual events via Zoom and include a Q&A session.

On Tuesday, September 21, at 7 p.m. the series presents "Women in Entertainment" with TV Editor Allison Anastasio and Post Production Coordinator Parneille Walker.

"SMC Professor Tim Conley will lead a discussion about their careers working behind the scenes on popular TV shows," event organizers said.

Anastasio has worked on shows for VH1, HBO, NBC, MTV, Wetpaint, and TBS network, and was nominated for an Emmy Award in Outstanding Picture Editing for her work on "Below Deck: Steamy Vibes," a Bravo and 51 Minds Entertainment production.

Walker has worked on shows for Fox, CW, Warner Bros., NBC, MTV, ABC, and Disney, and most recently joined the ABC Studios television series "Grown-ish" as a Post Production Coordinator.

On Friday, November 5, at 2 p.m., the series presents "Know Your Worth: Compensation Conversations with Tristan Orford."

Orford -- who is senior director of Global Compensation at Electronic Arts (EA) — will share his experience managing compensation initiatives at large companies.

"His interactive presentation is an introduction to the world of total rewards: how organizations think about the experience they create for the people who work there and the contracting they do with them, organizers said.

"The presentation will explore total rewards concepts, then transition to applied frameworks that can be used to better understand this essential part of the job hunt process, and to help navigate personal career opportunities.

Both events are sponsored by the SMC Associates and the school's Business Department, Communication & Media Studies Department and Design Technology Department.

A Zoom link to each talk will be available with the listing on the event date on the SMC Events calendar at
