Filmmaker Todd Thompson speaks to CCI students.Todd Thompson, a well-known producer and filmmaker, spoke to Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) Marketing and Audio/Video classes at the Douglas County College and Career Institute on March 8.

CCI marketing teacher Savannah Ray said Thompson talked to students about his journey as a filmmaker and about how his past experiences have made him successful in the film industry.

Ray said Thompson’s visit was a great way to wrap up CTAE Month and celebrate Women’s History Month. She noted that Thompson is currently working to release “Women in Motion,” a documentary about Nichelle Nichols, who recruited and supported the first African American, Asian and Latino women and men to fly in space.

“The students really enjoyed getting to meet such an admired professional and gained more knowledge about how to pursue a career in the entertainment industry,” Ray said. “Mr. Thompson hosted a Q&A after his presentation and students took the opportunity to ask many impressive questions. Three of them even won ‘Women in Motion’ posters. We loved having Todd Thompson visit our school and share his experiences with us!”
