Molly Machacek has been teaching film for over six years, beginning her adjunct teaching career immediately after graduation at NYU. She fondly remembers Les Moonces, the president of CBS, speaking at one of her classes calling it, “a pretty exciting day.” At the same time, Machacek also worked as an associate producer at Court TV and Turner Entertainment. This balancing act truly benefitted her industry expertise; an experience that she now uses to help her students.  “I love helping to give students a clearer picture of what they want to do after school,” she says.  “My most amazing teachers were also incredible mentors, and I strive to be that for my students”

Machacek is presently studying Entertainment Law in the hope of embarking on a future career as an entertainment lawyer.
