Film Faculty

You don’t learn moviemaking from behind a desk. You learn it from spending time on-set acting, directing, and shooting. It stands to reason that you should have a professor who is committed to hands-on learning for his students and for himself. Our film faculty is made up of talented industry professionals; directors, producers, screenwriters, and more. They not only allow their students to explore the film world with their own two hands, but continuously learn from their own film endeavors, bringing current industry knowledge to the classroom everyday.
