BPA Welcomes Summer Interns Will Ford-Conway and Tony Pilusio

28 June 2012 ~ 0 Comments

While our Drexel Spring intern Scott Hyde spends his summer in Los Angeles interning with Teri’s old Hemdale Film Corporation colleague Tom Ortenberg’s production company Open Road Films, BPA welcomes its summer interns Will Ford-Conway (USC Film School) and Tony Pilusio (Temple University) who will spend most of their time supporting our 6 week summer film program REELFilms at Arise Academy Charter High School plus helping on some in-house projects.  Arise Academy Charter High School is the only public high school in the U.S. serving foster youth exclusively.  Youth at Arise will learn about filmmaking script-to-screen with Big Picture Alliance’s media instructors and curriculum that will also provide them with 1 academic credit in Humanities.

Will’s films have already graced Sundance as well as many other film fests – see more about Will at http://www.wafcstudios.com/WAFC_Studios_Website/WAFC_Studios.html.  Tony is currently working on his own documentary plus has worked as a contracted videographer for such clients as Bucks County Federal Credit Union as well as other media companies.  He was also an extra in the Dark Knight Rises.  Welcome Will and Tony we are so fortunate to have you on our BPA-Arise REELFilms Team!
