Featured Grad: Lighting Supervisor For Frozen II

UMAHS grad Amol Sathe has worked at the Walt Disney Animation Studios since 2008. As one of the lighting supervisors on Frozen 2, he guided a team of artists through the lighting and rendering of six sequences in the film.  Lighting is the craft of using color, light, and shadow to add mood, appeal, and realism to the imagery onscreen.  After graduating Upper Merion, he went on to receive a BS & MS in Digital Media from Drexel University. We asked him to describe his experience at UMAHS:
"Upper Merion was a fantastic school.  The teachers encouraged us to think critically, be creative, and collaborate with our peers.  I think those are vital skills in any career.  I was also lucky to take some great elective classes, like Mrs. Ebersole’s “Film & TV History,” which fueled my lifelong love for the movies and how they’re made."
Congratulations Amol! Once A Viking Always A Viking!
