There were 10 major motion films made in Cincinnati in 2016, and our students were right in the middle of the action. Over fifteen students interned on the film “Killing of a Scared Deer,” a film by award winning filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos, starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell. Recent graduates of the program served in numerous paid positions on the set.
“I have never worked in a city that had so many set opportunities for film students. The head of the film commission, Kristen Schlotman, is a powerhouse who deserves applause for the incredible job she has done of turning this city into one of the nation’s top destinations for film production. We have freshmen students in our program who are already working on their second feature, and they have only been in school for ten weeks. This is unprecedented.” ~Kristyn Jo Benedyk, DMC Faculty
DMC students interned not only on the set in these films, but also in the production office, the art department, the costume department, the camera department, and because of the program’s unique interdisciplinary nature, even computer science students worked as interns on a science fiction film!
“I cannot say enough positive things about my experience working with students at the University of Cincinnati. The interns that worked on our production had a direct impact on our film and that’s something that you just cannot replicate in every city you shoot in.” Will Greenfield, Producer (Loving, Killing of a Sacred Deer, Chef)
Of course we also offer opportunities outside of Cincinnati, including an internship in Los Angeles, study abroad trips to London, Paris, and other locations, and more! For more information, click here.
