Hall of Fame 2011 Induction Ceremony Intro
This year's Hall of Fame Week was a great success, as we celebrated the careers of six Full Sail graduates and honored the achievements of these select alumni who have excelled in their career field. In addition to the induction ceremony in Full Sail Live and the unveiling of the new Hall of Fame installations (a mixed media wall featuring video, audio clips, pictures, and industry credits showcasing highlights from throughout the inductees' careers), we also hosted a variety of events on campus, including concerts, panel discussions, guest speakers, and more. Hall of Fame Week 2011 may be over, but we'll always have the memories...and these links:
Day One kicked off the festivities with a bang, with a red carpet event leading into the induction ceremony at Full Sail Live, several discussion panels and guest speaker events featuring Hall of Fame inductees past and present, and a concert from singer/songwriter Marc Broussard to end the night.
Day Two kept the ball rolling, with more special events across campus – including an outdoor performance by electronic musician Jeremy Ellis, a conversation with Full Sail Film grad Chase Heavener about the making of his documentary, Tim Tebow: Everything in Between, and several Hall of Famers taking the time to talk to students about their careers in the entertainment industry.
One might think that things would start winding down on the final day of the celebration, but Day Three kept up with the days that preceded it, offering students more panels and discussions on the gaming industry, the future of the music business, reality television, live sound, brand marketing, studio mixing techniques, sound design, and more.
A select group of students also got to participate in some exclusive GPS events, getting facetime and personal interaction with some of the Hall of Fame inductees during three separate sessions.
