In their words
hear from a faculty member & student
"I came to California as a naïve kid out of college, an Arkansan and a Christian, with little money and no connections. A long line stood ahead of me, hungry to claw their way into the competitive entertainment industry. All I had with me was my work ethic, a calling to care for others, and the ability to think clearly and creatively. My English degree equipped me with the rules to write correctly – which can’t be underestimated – but more importantly built me into an effective communicator who is able to listen and learn. In this industry and any other, there are simply not enough of us."
2002 English graduate and line producer for Lex and Otis Animation. He has produced animated projects for Warner Brothers, the NFL and Marvel.
