First Mondays: Ricky Staub
On February 3, our guest is APU alum Ricky Staub, writer/director from Philadelphia and founder of Neighborhood, a unique production company that offers paid apprenticeships and career development to adults returning home from incarceration.
Ricky ('06), one of our cinema and theater alumni, has just wrapped directing his first feature starring Idris Elba. After graduating, Ricky navigated to his first feature film after working for producer Sam Mercer (produces for M. Night Shyamalan), then starting his own production company creating content for companies like Google, Coca Cola, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Global Game Jam 2020
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
