DePaul’s bringing a little Hollywood to its students by naming Steven A. Jones, producer of several movie cult classics, as producer-in-residence for the university’s Digital Cinema program.

 

 

From the Chicago Tribune:

 

 

“Jones says juggling his production duties and advising masters candidates helps give his students ‘some insights into what is going on’ in the industry.

“Mostly, Jones said, his job is to ‘demystify’ producing for students.

“‘I tell them every movie has its own dynamic, its own DNA and its own flaws. So the flaws are the things you look for the next time out,’ he said.”

 

 

Steven’s most recent production was 2008’s “The Promotion,” starring DePaul Theatre School alumnus John C. Reilly and Seann William Scott. He also produced “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and “Wild Things.”
