I have discussed before the unique opportunities that Biola has to offer their students. I wanted to take this time to tell you all how Biola has helped propel my film career. I also mentioned how I am studying Communication here: this is true, but I am utilizing that wonderful major to bolster my film-making abilities. Biola has access to some of the finest film-making equipment and production center in which students can create. Students are allowed to access these resources as early as their freshmen year. The school does this to give them chances to explore and to fail so by the time their final years at school roll around they will be that much better.



Besides the wonderful equipment, and a community built on collaboration, Biola has a wonderful location where students have access to participate on film sets. I have had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of sets for television shows, music videos, and commercials which wouldn't be possible without Biola’s location: students are able to be where all the hubbub of film-making is happening. Students have internships at different locations all around Hollywood and other places. I myself have an internship at a management office for someone who represents a variety of different writers, producers, and directors. Besides the location, Biolans are also irrefutable in their filming capabilities.

The last thing I wanted to talk about is the name Biola has made for itself in film. We always mention that famous alumni—like Scott Derrickson who directed “Doctor Strange”—graduated from here. But beyond him, other alumnae have been successful in the industry. One alum even helped get me jobs on different sets and for that I am so grateful. The famous Variety magazine even ranked Biola as one of the top film schools!

I have heard many stories of students saying that they got specific jobs because the employer knew what kind of students Biola has to offer. I believe that it has to do with how we integrate Christ into our film-making, hard work, and dedication. I love how our school looks at film. It has been a wonderful experience here and I owe so much of my success in the film-making industry to Biola.
