Strategy: Spotlight success of School of Filmmaking alumni in the industry.
Excerpt: For seven months out of the last year, cinematographer Zoë White effectively lived in Gilead, the country inhabited by many of the characters of Hulu’s hit show “The Handmaid’s Tale.” White, who earned a B.F.A. with a concentration in Cinematography from the School of Filmmaking in 2004, was Director of Photography for half of the show’s second season.
Gilead (or Toronto, where the show is filmed) joins the list of cities where White has lived and worked as a filmmaker since graduation: Sydney, Los Angeles and New York. She was named as one of Variety’s 10 Cinematographers to Watch in 2018 and her list of credits is extensive, with music videos, commercials, indie features and plenty of UNCSA connections.
