Major: English
Minor: Visual Art
Storyboard Artist, Art Director’s Guild

“I am a storyboard artist for films and commercials. It is my job to create a series of illustrations that serve as a guide for shooting or animating the project.

Film is one of the ultimate liberal arts jobs — to be a good designer and storyteller, you have to have a massive library of references in your head to pull from, or to know where to go to look. You have to understand classic storytelling. To run a production, you need strong organizational and financial skills. Visual effects simulations require artistic skills, but also computer science and mathemati work done as a religion major proved a firm foundation for marketing, public relations, and other communications work.”
