Alum, Joseph Izzo presents, Scared Shrekless

Media Studies Alumni and DreamWorker, Joseph Izzo acted as Production Supervisor for the upcoming NBC special “Scared Shreckless” airing later this month.  Izzo managed three departments for this project:  the story (all things script and story-board related), layout (all things camera related) and editorial (all things production related).

“Scared Shrekless” features the lovable ogre, Shrek, and all of his friends from Dreamworks Animation‘s blockbuster feature film franchise, which has generated nearly $3 billion in worldwide box office. 

Halloween is Shrek’s favorite holiday, and this year he’s planning a night of frights – all done ogre-style. Instead of the usual tricks or treats, Shrek challenges Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots and the other fairy tale characters to spend the night in Lord Farquaad’s haunted castle telling scary stories. The last one to be scared “Shrekless” will win.
The Halloween-themed television special is scheduled to air on NBC on Thursday, October 28 from 8:00 to 8:30 p.m. ET.
