Lecture: Five Lessons from a 10-year Film School
Sunday, April 24: 7 – 9pm
Noble Lounge

Jake reviews his work and discusses practical lessons learned from 3 features and a dozen shorts.

self-produced, micro-budget shorts and features were made single-handedly, featuring untrained actors in rural settings. His films have screened in international venues such as Sundance, Venice (Orizzonti Best Film Award), and SXSW (Grand Jury Prize).

He founded two new filmmaking programs at two universities as an Associate Professor of Film and Art in the United States and currently coordinates the Screen Production program at Auckland University in New Zealand.
