Posted By Administration, Monday, August 15, 2016


Question: What's the first summer blockbuster movie you can remember seeing? 

Shaun O'Banion 

Co-producer,

The Automatic Hate

In ‘81, my parents took me to see Raiders of the Lost Ark. I was scared, thrilled and on the edge of my seat. By the end, I’m not sure I understood everything I’d just seen, but movies had already become the thing I wanted to be a part of. I knew at age 7 that I’d be a filmmaker. Twenty years later, I named my company Ravenwood Films after Karen Allen’s character in Raiders.


Lauren Ellis

VFX producer,

Queen Sugar

Independence Day and I remember it vividly! My brothers and I were mesmerized, and it was the coolest thing I had ever seen in a movie theater. Will Smith was on top of the world at that time and I wondered, "How in the world did they make this?”


Brian McLaughlin

Producer,

Good Boy

A week later, I went back to see it again
