ALC’s Film and Video Production students visited BYU’s Fine Arts Center last Friday. They were able to tour the film classes, set construction workshops, editing labs, animation labs, theaters, and prop and costume collections.

They were also lucky enough to attend a poetry reading by Robert Pinsky, three-time U.S. Poet Laureate. After his reading, Robert spoke about the creative process and life as a working artist and scholar. What a fantastic experience these students had!
