From Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Austin Pope is a recent MFA Graduate student from the Savannah College of Art & Design.
"I learned the logistics behind productions, including how to create set budgets and establishing a culture with intentions to have a productive environment. The importance of being open-minded and flexible to on-set changes were also significant in my understanding of productions.
I've also learned how to inform and communicate with my actors what their characters' motivations are, in order to get emotions and intended scene actions, as a director".
Having experience in working on music videos and narratives, Austin plans to continue working on projects that provide escapism yet holds social relevance in today's day and age.
