The goal is to connect Chapman film students “to the living, breathing industry,” says Stephen Galloway, dean of the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.
What better way than to bring to campus the creators of Hollywood’s most invigorating work? The latest lineup of Dodge master classes certainly fulfilled that vision, featuring inspiration from a host of groundbreaking filmmakers, including Oscar winners and nominees.
- The storytelling was compelling, from Brendan Fraser (Best Actor, “The Whale”) and Michelle Yeoh (Best Actress, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”).
- From Austin Butler (nominee for Best Actor, “Elvis”) and Todd Field (nominee for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, “Tár”).
- From one of The Daniels – writer-director Daniel Scheinert (Oscar winner for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”) – and the guy who co-created The Dude – four-time Oscar winner Joel Coen (“The Big Lebowski,” “Fargo,” “No Country for Old Men”).
Here are images and insights from a truly masterful season.
