Generations of UCLA students will salute Howard Suber for his 50 years of teaching on Friday in an event that the legendary film professor likens to the scene from “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” where the title character witnesses his own funeral.
“It’s one of my favorite episodes in fiction,” said Suber. “Where Tom and Huck are believed to have drowned in the Mississippi and they watch as the pastor gets up and everyone says these glowing things that no one said when they thought they were alive. I get to hear these eulogies while I’m still around too.”
At an age when many of his contemporaries have given up work for golf or other hobbies, Suber is still at it, teaching two courses this semester on film structure and strategic career planning. It’s been a remarkable run for a man who says he never intended to be a college professor. »

If you can’t beat ’em, as the saying goes, join ’em. And while the Sundance Institute won’t be dropping its efforts to foster the best in independent filmmakers anytime soon, the huge migration of indie film talent to TV series led the org to launch its first Episodic Story Lab.
“We’ve been hearing from our theater, feature film and festival alums that it would be great to have a program to support them making the transition from writing feature scripts to multi-episode storytelling,” says Sundance Institute feature film program founding director Michelle Satter.

It’s already produced results: all 10 writers who participated in the Sept. 27-Oct. 2 Park City lab now have representation (only »
