Quinnipiac University’s School of Communications might just have a hit on their hands. Scott Rosenfelt, a film producer and director whose past work includes such pop culture hits as Home Alone, Teen Wolf, and Mystic Pizza has just joined the administration as a mentor for students in the program.
As a professional-in-residence in film, video and interactive studies for the 2011-12 academic year, Rosenfelt will give guest lectures and help provide valuable critique to students’ projects. He will also launch a weekend workshop for aspiring producers, in hopes of helping senior students land internships in the industry in New York and Los Angeles. Quinnipiac University is located in Hamden, Connecticut.
Mentoring is not an uncommon practice for communications and related programs. Emerson College has long called upon some of their famous alumni to assist their up and coming students by taking them under their wing and helping them to network within the industry.
Rosenfelt currently has a number of his own projects in the pipeline for this year, including a comedy called American Girls, and a psychological thriller called Bed and Breakfast, both of which are slated for release in 2011.
