THE LEGENDARY GEORGE A. ROMERO
The legendary director of Night of the Living Dead has joined Douglas Education Center (DEC). George A. Romero, the western Pennsylvania native who made his mark in the movie industry by bringing zombies to “life” on the silver screen a half century ago, is now developing the next generation of filmmakers as the signator of the new George A. Romero’s Filmmaking Program.

 

Romero’s success began in 1968 when he wrote and directed the most famous movie about zombies rising from the grave.  The low budget film became a hit and secured Romero as a trailblazer of the horror movie genre.  Since the release of the black-and-white cult classic, Romero has written and directed several sequels, including Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, and Land of the Dead.  Flesh-eating zombies aren’t the only subjects of his films.  Romero has also directed hit horror movies such as Monkey Shines, Creepshow, and The Dark Half, the latter two based on the works of author Stephen King.

FACULTY
ROBERT TINNELL, Director

“The Factory is a film studio. Sure, it’s a school – but it is also very much a film studio. You can walk in with nothing but an idea and walk out with a finished movie. We give our students the freedom and opportunity to do just that.” – Robert Tinnell

 

Robert Tinnell knows a thing or two about telling stories. A masterful writer, director, and producer, Tinnell’s claim to fame is for his work on feature films, including Kids of the Round Table, Frankenstein and Me, and Believe, as well as upcoming productions of Sacrifice, The Living and the Dead, and The Mothman Chronicles. Outside of the film industry, Tinnell is a well-respected graphic novelist, known for such works as The Black Forest, The Wicked West, Flesh and Blood, and the Eisner Award-Nominated Feast of the Seven Fishes.
