Created the ASU Film Festival Initiative: 15 INTO 50

Inspired by the excellent work of his Capstone film students, Collis created this program in which each student receives private consultations with an esteemed film festival consultant such as Megan O’Neill of Forefront Films and formerly Head of Acquisitions at Networks and Thomas Ethan Harris, founder of the Los Angeles Film Festival and former Director Of Programming at several major international film festivals including the prestigious Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films.  The consultants give each filmmaker feedback on their films as well as a custom film festival strategy for their film.

The goal of this initiative to get 15 ASU student films accepted into 50 major film festivals.  And we’ve already had success!  For details, pleases read:
