Andrew Hunt, IPR’s newest screenwriting and video production teacher, set out to write a simple short film with very little dialogue and very few locations. Clean Cut – originally produced as an entry for Z Fest – did just that. The short film is set in a one-room studio, the dialogue consists of a few grunts and two or three lines – and the leading role belongs to a robotic vacuum cleaner.
In the meantime, you can find Andrew in the halls at IPR, on his way to his advanced screenwriting class; or in the studio at our satellite campus, teaching production to the DVMP‘s second-year students. An enthusiastic instructor with a natural teaching ability and contagious energy, Andrew is just a couple weeks into his first term as an instructor at IPR, although he has served as a guest speaker in the past.
Andrew made his debut to the nation in 2007 as a contestant on the a contest-style reality show from Fox called On the Lot. The show accepted 12,000 submissions from around the world, all from up-and-coming filmmakers. Fifty of those filmmakers, including Andrew, where named by producer Steven Spielberg as semi-finalists on the show. In the end, Andrew was among the final six contestants to survive. Since 2007, Andrew has been working in television drama and commercially at places like Augsburg Fortress and Shop NBC.
