Student filmmakers at the Lewis Center for the Arts

Sept. 5, 2017 noon

In this video, three members of Princeton's Class of 2017 talk about their senior film projects and working with visual arts faculty. Above, second from right, Chanyoung Park is seen on the set of her senior thesis film, "Madame Citron."

A dramatic film inspired by true events in Haiti. A screenplay about the name “Eve.” A comic film about multicultural identities.

Alex Ford, Emma Michalak and Chanyoung Park — all members of the Class of 2017 — created these artistic projects as senior theses at Princeton, and the works represent just a sampling of ways that film studies is pursued at the University. Ford earned a certificate in visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts, Michalek earned a certificate in creative writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts, and Park majored in art and archaeology, focusing on visual arts and film.

In this video, the students describe their creative projects, their faculty mentors, the experiences on and beyond campus that shaped their work, and how they plan to pursue work in film now that they have graduated.
