Our students are on the cutting edge of new short films. Ifilm has two of our students’ films in the top ten nationally. Last year, our students won four out of the five top awards at the CSU Media Arts Festival. Many of our students have gone on to become successful in Hollywood. John Dykstra won an Oscar for Special Effects for "Star Wars." Mark Steven Johnson was the writer and director for "Daredevil." Stu Rosen has won ten Emmy’s mainly for his work in children’s television. Guy Bee was the Director of Photography for "ER," before he directed several episodes. Ron Simonson is a noted director of photography with many film credits. Jonathan Lawton wrote "Pretty Woman." David Twohy wrote "Terminal Velocity" and "The Fugitive" and wrote and directed "Pitch Black" and "The Chronicles of Riddick." And, of course, Steven Spielberg has more credits than we can list here.
