MAGNIFYING, No. 17: Ana Breton

February 01 2019

For this episode of MAGNIFYING we spoke with Department of Film & Media Arts alumn and Digital Producer Ana Breton. Our creative community here at the College of Fine Arts is diverse and wide spread. With the goal of gaining a deeper knowledge and awareness of the people within our community, we bring you MAGNIFYING, a series dedicated to showcasing the talent of our students, faculty, and staff.

Tell us about yourself?
I was born in Mexico City. I grew up in Utah and now live in New York. I'm currently a digital producer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. I've always been interested in video and have been involved in making documentaries, TV shows and movies.

What has surprised you the most in your life?
Being nominated for an Emmy two years in a row. It still feels like a dream. (We lost, but that's ok)

What do you wish you had known/been told?
If you continue to work toward your dream, you'll eventually get there. I know this sounds insane and probably too simple, but I've learned that there are enough people who quit along that way, that if you just keep working on the path you're on, you'll eventually get there. Don't give up.
