Past Recipients Student Testimonials  

Moving to Los Angeles to attend film school was the last thing on Bethe’s mind while growing up on the east end of Long Island. A serious student in the sciences, she received her Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Barnard College at Columbia University in 2002.

Despite having PhDs, MDs and JDs in her family, she realized that the straight academic path would not suit her anymore after she completed her first computer animated short, The Wink, in 2002. In 2005 she ended her two and a half year career as a computer consultant to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Southern California. She has never imagined being so in love and dedicated to such an exciting and new career.

Her USC thesis film, “Child Invisible,” currently in post-production, has won both the FujiFilm Thesis Award as well as a finishing fund grant from the Caucus Foundation.
