BrandStar Donates LED Volume Wall to Lynn University in Boca Raton 

Lynn University’s Boca Raton campus has named its TV studio “BrandStar Studios at Lynn University” after BrandStar donated and installed an LED Volume Wall to give students unparalleled access to the latest virtual production technology. Students using the studio can gain experience in real-time compositing, which combines multiple images to form a single, cohesive image using the Unreal Engine. It also caters to aspiring developers, artists, designers, gamers, journalists, content creators and storytellers by enhancing their virtual production skills.

“Students who are looking to dive into the production industry will get a one-of-a-kind opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment,” Andrea Kott says, Vice President of BrandStar Studios, who is also responsible for the overall studio operations at BrandStar.

BrandStar, a fully horizontally and vertically integrated production company, will also provide a Streaming, Screening and Idea Lab at Lynn, mentorship and career development opportunities for students.

“We are delighted to have established such a broad collaboration with Lynn University,” Mark Alfieri says, CEO of BrandStar. “By helping to augment the school’s offerings, we are going to fast-track their student’s skills, specifically within the rapidly evolving world of virtual and mixed reality.”

Graduates of Lynn’s Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn College of Communication and Design typically seek positions in the TV, film and production industry. BrandStar’s contributions will enhance the tools, mentorships and guidance to support students’ learning at Lynn.

“The partnership with BrandStar is the perfect alliance for us to further innovate our students’ education, with cutting-edge technology and hands-on experience,” Cesar Santalo says, College of Communication and Design Dean. “Lynn’s communication and design programs are on the forefront of technology and our connections with well-respected, professional organizations help us prepare our students for an ever-changing industry.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
