The Film Industry: Worked with Christian Slater

In summer 2011, I worked with production companies based in California and Chicago on two feature films: "Freaky Deaky" and "Cass."

I ended up working on three feature films as a production assistant. I landed a role as Michael Jai White's ("Spawn," "Blood and Bone," "Undisputed") stunt double in "Freaky Deaky" which was a movie about 1960 bomb-making radicals who wanted to become capitalists. I worked with Christian Slater, Billy Burke, Sabina Gadecki, Bill Dukes, Andy Dick and Crispin Glover all in that one movie. Then, once the summer ended, I decided to direct a little and shot two martial arts shorts: "Wrong Place, Right Time" was shot in November and "The Raid" was shot in January.

Graduate School

I am now attending grad school at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan working on an MA in Public Relations and Organizational Communication.

Teaching and Coaching

I am working at a middle school where I am implementing an interactive media course to teach sixth, seventh, and eighth graders television radio broadcasting and film production. I also coach basketball at the school and football at a police athletic league called Think Detroit PAL. In addition to this, I am coaching high school football now.

I just acquired an LLC, A-LAND Media Productions, which is a company that provides youth with visual and performing arts talent with a way to showcase their skills to colleges and universities....kind of like a Max Preps for the visual and performing arts students from ninth to twelfth grade.

Music

I have a band called KASC; we have been playing a lot of gigs--mainly in the Midwest. In February 2012, we went on tour and spent the entire month of February in Canada playing different shows and building a great fan base over there. We headlined our first show in March 2012 here in the States, which was really good! You can check out our website at http://www.wix.com/cameroncullers/kascmusicgroup . We are making arrangements to cut a CD soon.

  • Start Your Major Freshman Year

    Like Elementary Education major Brittany Cooper ’12, you start your major as soon as you walk in the door, so you will have four years of knowledge and experience in your field.You can even change your mind about your major and still graduate on time with lots of experience.

    Core and the major work in harmony to develop the cognitive skills requisite for success in a competitive, global society. Students better understand the forces that shape the future by exploring the past. They discuss contemporary events; analyze the impact of science on our understanding of humanity and the universe; and investigate diverse cultures and world civilizations. 

  • Mentorship

    Small colleges offer you personal attention; SJC professors, such as Communication Professors Fred and Sally Berger, do more for you—they serve as mentors. Studies show that having a mentor leads to success in your field. Alumni often tell us how their professors not only played a major role in their success, but also became lifelong friends.  If you are undecided about what to major in, we help you decide.

  • High Quality Academics

    In the Core Program, you will be inspired to debate, analyze, and solve problems. Discussion of culture and society, the modern world, and Christian Humanism are just a few highlights of the Program. New perspectives will be gained, your worldview will expand, and you will graduate from SJC as a well rounded, highly marketable person.

  • Leadership

    You get more deeply involved at SJC, so you get more meaningful experiences that prepare you for career and life. LaMichelle Sanders ’14, for example, has spent two summers helping Chinese study abroad students adapt to life in the U.S. and at SJC. If you want to start a club or activity that doesn’t exist, we encourage you to start one. At SJC, prepare yourself for what you want to do in life.

  • Real-life Skills

    Because of the skills you develop by having the Core Program interact with your major for four years in addition to internships, job shadowing, and service learning, you get hands-on experience in preparation for your career or graduate school. Students Hanna Kane ’14, Emily Baird ’15, and Alyssa Guarnaccia ’14 collect food in the SJC hoophouse to be distributed on campus. You will also get four years of analytical, writing, and speaking skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life.
