ASU Film Spark is an unprecedented program at the intersection of the entertainment industry and academia with three primary goals:

1) CAREER ACCELERATOR to help ASU students and alumni in entertainment.
2) INNOVATION HUB to create a better industry, culture and society.
3) SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA OUTREACH ARM to deepen ASU connections with the alumni, prospective students, entertainment companies and others in the region.

Film Spark, started by ASU film professor Adam Collis, began as a simple video-conference with a filmmaker that grew into a mission to connect ASU with the best filmmakers and executives in the world. Since then Professor Collis has connected ASU students with four Oscar-winners, five Oscar-nominees, three studio chiefs, the presidents of the Academy and the Directors Guild, as well as numerous blockbuster producers and award-winning directors. Film Spark’s Feature Film Internship Initiative also gave eighty-five ASU students and fifteen recent alumni the chance to learn filmmaking on an actual feature film set with an Oscar-winning cast and crew.

Recognizing the extraordinary value being delivered to ASU students, President Crow worked with Dean Steven Tepper of the Herberger Institute for Arts and Design to establish Film Spark as a formal program, which fully launched in January of this year out of ASU’s California Center in Santa Monica.

If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
