Glen Ellyn native competes in prestigious Sprite Films program
GLEN ELLYN – During a recent trip to CinemaCon as part of the Sprite Films program, Glen Ellyn native Sam Bengtson talked to director Oliver Stone for 30 minutes. At the end of their conversation, Stone looked Bengtson in the eye and said, “I’ll see you at the Academy.”
“That was definitely a highlight of the trip,” Bengtson said.
Bengtson, a senior studying arts, entertainment and media management at Columbia College in Chicago, was chosen as a finalist in the Sprite Films program, along with his filmmaking partner, Sean Grasse. Together with a crew of about 30 to 40 people, they are in the midst of creating a 60-second spot for Sprite.
