Documentary filmmaker Jeremy Newberger, of Emmy-nominated Ironbound Films, visited with the students of the Bellmore-Merrick Broadcasting program on April 12.  

Newberger spent the morning discussing the world of documentary filmmaking, along with the many career opportunities and paths available in the world of broadcasting with the students.  
“He used his real world experience producing documentaries screened at both the Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals to offer advice for the students as they create their own documentaries on life in an American high school,” said teacher Stuart Stein.

Newberger is currently touring the country promoting his most recent project Heading Home, the tale of team Israel at last year’s World Baseball Classic. The film will be in select theaters this summer.
