MFA Student Honored at ASC Awards in Los Angeles

By  | 

Still from American University student Steven Holloway's award-winning film "The Defeat X3."

American University Film and Electronic Media MFA student Steven Holloway was among three young directors of photography honored at the American Society of Cinematographers’ Gordon Willis Student Heritage Awards. Holloway won the national award for his film, "The Defeat X3."

The ASC Awards are designed to showcase the next generation of filmmakers. The winners were announced at ASC’s clubhouse in Hollywood and highlighted in American Cinematography magazine.

Holloway's film plays the same scenario three times, in three different styles: German Expressionism, French New Wave, and Film Noir. Holloway takes sole authorship of "The Defeat X3" and shot the film in a single day.
