Realizing the need to internationalize and digitally transform educational systems, I developed University Filmworks with the support of Edward E. Vaughan to provide film and production services and opportunities to schools, colleges and universities.

In order to appeal to students globally, our innovations in video and cinematic techniques include new production styles aimed at stimulating imagination, intellectual curiosity, and interest in timely education opportunities.
