A graduate of Dodge College’s Summer Film Academy, Dylan is most passionate about telling stories through 1 and 24 frames.

From his Chapman experience, Dylan hopes to take away a future ready education that will prepare him for a career in the film industry. He aspires to be a director of photography for feature films and television, and to someday be a member of the American Society of Cinematographers. This summer, Dylan plans on going to concerts and driving around the Western United States with his best friends to see new sights and create endless memories before they all go their separate ways.

If you could meet anyone in history (alive or dead) who would it be and why?
I’d meet Emmanuel Lubezki, my favorite cinematographer. I’d ask him copious amounts of questions about how he shot certain scenes in the films he’s done.
