“Hollywood East” Opens at Montclair State

Montclair University held a ribbon cutting ceremony on the 26th in celebration of their brand new, state of the art multimedia School of Communications and Media building. MSU alumni, University board members, state legislators, staff, and students alike all got to tour the impressive new building post-ceremony.

According to Montclair State University’s President, Susan A. Cole, ‘impressive’ could possibly be an understatement as it may be “the most technologically advanced media and production facility of any university in North America and…is, in fact, more advanced than many professional facilities.”

The facility will provide students a wealth of opportunity for education and growth within the industry they’ve chosen to study, and as special guest New Jersey State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg expressed, there is hope for students to utilize the new facility as they “go out and change the world.”

The building was made possible through a strategic partnership between MSU and Sony Electronics’ Professional Solutions Americas. Some of the tools and resources include 4K and HD studios and control rooms, multimedia labs, and an advanced studio production center.

The building has been dubbed “Hollywood East” and it’s sure to make a great difference in the education of students at MSU!

Tyler Wisler on Interior Design

Tyler Wisler, New Jersey interior designer, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss making a space “speak” to his clients.

Wisler’s first job was at a small boutique design firm in New York City. There, he learned that so much of design is how you work with people. “We’re like a therapist trying to figure out how to navigate a space and make it a signature of that person,” he says.

He states that some clients know exactly what they want, but others love bringing on someone with a visionary mind. “We love those clients,” Wisler says. He always tries to incorporate a person’s personality into their space.

Amanda Amato on Interior Design

Amanda Amato, Interior Designer of AMA Designs and Interiors, LLC, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss her unique approach to designing for each customer.

“I believe that your home should reflect your personality,” Amato says. When she does designs, they are the projection of the person she is working with.

“If a person is playful, I can tell that we can put some pattern and color into their space. If a person is calm, subdued colors would work better in their space,” she says. “I really pull from the vibe of the person.”
