Benny Jet Interviews Eric and Lisa 2017
Lisa Hagopian spent many hours as a child watching movies on TV after school. What an education in film history - from 1930s gangster flicks, to Gentlemen’s Agreement to musicals and every other genre imaginable. Her mother often took Lisa to the Fisher Theater in Detroit to see the latest Broadway play. Her junior high school would screen films like The Red Bal-loon and Night and Fog every year and it was during this time that she joined the school’s film club. This all led Lisa to a life-long love of film, theater and photography. She really caught the photography bug when she took photojournalism classes at Michigan State University. Video production and film appreciation classes came later. After polishing her skills, Lisa & Eric Harabadian produced a public access TV series called "The Arts Uncovered"
Eric Harabadian has been a writer for nearly 30 years having been published in Downbeat, Music Connection, & Metro Times and Big City Rhythm & Blues just to name a few. He is also an accomplished songwriter/ vocalist/ guitarist and has been the vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the bands Chain Reaction. Eric started his filmmaking ventures as a pre teen making animated and super 8mm short films for his family and school projects. Shortly thereafter he learned guitar and was off and running with music. In addition to the series “The Arts Uncovered”, Eric volunteered for the Michigan Television Network. Besides music, writing and filmmaking, Eric is also a public relations consultant with Media Stew Public Relations.
