I was hired in September 2012 to help pilot City University for City On A Hill Productions. City on a Hill Productions and Christian Academy Louisville (CAL) are partnering together to create a new curriculum on the Art and Craft of Filmmaking beginning in the Fall of 2013. After the program is piloted, we will launch the curriculum nationwide for high schools and homeschoolers. I am very excited to be a part of this work that I strongly believe that God has begun.
