Film Graduate Spotlight - Jimmy Dempsey - F.I.R.S.T. Institute

Meet Jimmy Dempsey, a graduate of the F.I.R.S.T. Institute Film and Video program. He’s currently working on the third season of the reality TV show Treehouse Masters. He manages the camera gear, some shooting, and digital imaging technician tasks, also called DIT work. Because it’s a traveling show, meaning it’s at a different location each production, he’s in charge of shipping of the gear from one location to the next, as well as downloading content to prepare it for posting.


Recent F.I.R.S.T. Institute graduates Christina Carmona and Nando Luis Torres have not only been paving the way for future and fellow graduates but they’ve also created their own lane in the film and entertainment industry. From providing opportunities for those who share the same passion to debuting future films on some of the most privileged. I recently caught up with the two trailblazers to discuss the past, present and future of Bad Kitty Films!
