Brianna Cillessen

Public Access (DOM TV Station) Work-Study

My name is Brianna and I am a studio access intern. I am currently a Junior in the BFA Film program at the University of Colorado at Denver. I am a bit flamboyant and excitable sometimes but I believe that caused by my Brazilian heritage and talking with my family in Brazil so often, but hey that means I am always pretty happy! I absolutely love film but I also am great with technology, IT, and troubleshooting so if you have a question about the equipment, computers, or studios feel free to ask! I also have a lot of knowledge about subjects outside of film since it took me so long to find my passion. I hope to some day travel the world and make documentaries to bring outside cultural knowledge to those who cannot travel or who cannot afford traditional education.

Having moved recently from Brooklyn, New York Whitney is keeping busy by exploring and enjoying all of the beautiful hiking opportunities Colorado has to offer.

Vinson Powell

Studio Access Intern

Vinson Powell is the new Studio Access intern at Denver Open Media. After moving to Denver with his family in the late fifties, Vinson soon began playing the flute, and with the help of his father, had the opportunity at a very young age to play with some of Denver's finer musicians. By the mid 1970's Vinson was traveling and collaborating with various bands and started being featured in multiple recordings and even radio jingles. Spending time in the studio since the age of 19 has allowed Vinson to gain a tremendous amount of insight to the world of production, and professional audio. He wishes to continue that knowledge here at OMF, learning to collaborate and expand on his years of musical industry experience. Having traveled to so many different cities, and towns, has allowed Vinson to really appreciate great talent. After working within the field of education for over 30 years, Vinson is now retired and looking to continue his respect and education of audio and production.
