ALUMNI HIGHLIGHT – The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion
Mikki Bennet and Brock Humphrey were inaugural members of the CAPS Filmmaking class graduating in 2011. They are both living in Los Angeles where their professional paths recently crossed with their work on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion. The special was taped on September 10th to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the series, which aired on that date in 1990. Mikki has enjoyed the chance to reconnect with Brock saying, “CAPS really kickstarted our learnings and careers. And it’s so fun to be living our dreams in the entertainment industry while looking back on where we started.”
