Mark worked closely with Steve Spielberg on the set of TinTin – How did that happen?

Mark DiCristofaro, a distinguished alum of CGS’06 [e.g., honored with the Leila Saad Award, the Scarlet Key of all BU Scarlet Keys,] talked with prospective filmakers at CGS and COM, faculty (e.g. Prof McKnight, Prof Masters, and Dr Foley-Reese), and prospective students and parents from the April Open House about his experiences in LA breaking into the movie business.He talked in a genuine, eloquent, and granular way about the details of getting a position on the set of Spielberg’s new film, TinTin.  He said he had been in the right place at the right time, but it was clear how actively he worked over years to put himself in the right place/right time.

This talk was sponsored by CGS Alumni and Development, Student Services, and FLAPS.
