One of the reason’s UVU’s Digital Cinema Production major is the best film school experience in Utah is the opportunity to learn filmmaking from people actually making them. From big blockbusters to micro-budget indies to award-winning documentaries, at CineSkype we hear from them all. Once a month UVU’s Digital Cinema Production program hosts a movie then does a digital Question & Answer session with the filmmaker.

Past participants have included Barry Sonnenfeld (director of the Men in Black and Addams Family movies - as well as Get Shorty), Bruce Cohen (Academy Award winning producer of such films as American Beauty, Milk, Big Fish, Bleed for This and others), Guinevere Turner (screenwriter of American Psycho and other films) and Brigham Taylor (producer of The Jungle Book), Academy Award nominated writer and director Jeff Nichols (Loving, Mud, and Take Shelter), indie darling David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon and A Ghost Story), etc.
