IPR College of Creative Arts instructor, Andrew Hunt directs Miles Between Us, a new family-friendly feature film from independent production company ii FILMS, LLC that will open locally and in select AMC theaters nationwide beginning May 12th – 18th.
In 2007, Andrew was selected by Steven Spielberg to be a contestant on the Fox Reality series, On The Lot. He placed top six out of 12,000 filmmakers. Next, Andrew jumped into the world of television, where he became a showrunner on a variety of documentary dramas.
In August 2015, Andrew wrapped production on his directorial debut, Miles Between Us, and is in development on his second feature, entitled Deadmen. Finally, Andrew’s 10-part Web series, Gods@Play, debuted in 2015.
“We are so fortunate to have Andy as an instructor at IPR. He brings relevant industry experience to the classroom and provides students with opportunities to work on professional projects, along-side industry professionals,” says Stacy Severson, campus director for IPR.
Andrew teaches production and screenwriting classes in both the AAS and BFA degree programs and mentors students in the development and production of their culminating video projects.
“While I’m continuously impressed by the level of talent of our faculty at IPR, to have one of our own honored in such a fashion is pretty incredible,” says Jeanne, chief executive officer for Broadview Education Consortium. “Andy’s brilliance in filmmaking and passion for teaching students creates an atmosphere ripe for leading students to future success in film.”
