Variety’s 2016 Mentor of the Year: Pepperdine Professor Craig Detweiler

27 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Students who attend classes taught by Craig Detweiler — Variety’s 2016 Mentor of the Year — are getting more than just an education in film.

Detweiler, professor of communication at Pepperdine U. and creative director of the school’s Institute for Entertainment, Media and Culture, provides a path through what he calls “the angst that is endemic to the (entertainment) industry” by encouraging his students to view the industry from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

“I’m trying to inspire long-term, sustainable creativity,” which can be achieved through an adherence to story, the ability to adapt to the “madness that we know as Hollywood,” and an understanding of all sides of the industry as a means of controlling one’s creative career.

That multi-disciplinary approach is at the heart of the institute, which prepares its students for the 21st-century media marketplace through an array of disciplines — arts and humanities, law, psychology, business — and collaboration »
