EDLT Student's Film Selected by Jamie Foxx in Competition


Oscar GuzmanDoctor of Education in Learning Technologies (EDLT) student Oscar Guzman’s short film, "At Your Door," was selected as the winning submission for Jamie Foxx’s Canon Project Imaginat10n acting challenge. Foxx released five lines of dialogue and contestants were asked to create a 20-second film that showed them delivering one of the lines. 

“I was unaware of the competition until my brother asked me to help him and some friends with their own submission, and he encouraged me to submit my own,” Guzman said. “My brother is the one that inspired my love for film as a young child. He's my biggest fan, critic, and greatest teacher.”

As a first year EDLT student, Guzman feels that the recognition solidifies his purpose here at GSEP.

“I knew that I wanted to put my focus in entertainment as a medium for education,” Guzman said.  “This award confirms that I am on the right path to combining my love for film and education.”
