Liberty University Film School
Katie Lynn Daniels at Christianfilmmakers.org talks about the new film program launching at Liberty University.
(EXCERPT) Liberty University is launching a new Center for Cinematic Arts to positively influence American and the world with the assistance of famous screen writer and film maker Dan Gordon. The Center for the Cinematic Arts is scheduled to open in the 2011-2012 school year and will offer Liberty’s students an education on how they can bring a positive spin to the silver screen and train the next generation of entertainment industry leaders in how to positively portray traditional values in the media.
The announcement of the new center was highlighted by the visit and future collaboration of filmmaker, Dan Gordon, who publically offered his support to help create Liberty’s new center. Gordon is the co-founder of the Zaki Gordon Institute (ZGI) for Independent Filmmaking at Yavapai Community College in Sedona, Ariz. The Institute is dedicated to creating a new generation of filmmakers by offering a “full immersion” educational experience under the direction of mentors who are not just academically qualified, but professionals in their field. Liberty’s program will expand the ZGI model to become the first such program at a four year institution.
