Paul Hatfield
TV Station (Public Access) Intern
I am a recent gradate of UCCS with a bachelors in digital filmmaking and media arts. I am an aspiring writing and obsessed with the shared experiences created in the field of production. I seek new ways to refine my abilities as a storyteller and new personas to craft into them. Growing up in a small town in southern Colorado, T.V. and Film were my window to the world and I am excited to contribute to its creation. 
Also, I plan on taking over the world. 
Chandler Toffa
Production/Editing Intern

My name is Chandler Toffa and I plan on enrolling in University of Southern California's Film and Television Production program in the fall of 2015. I've always had an interest in people and how different individuals relate to one another. I find that through the creative medium of film, I am able to capture that beauty in the form of a story. I am also fascinated by language and am bilingual in French and English, fluent in Spanish, and am currently learning Mandarin. Though I'm not quite sure as to where eclectic curiosity will lead me in the future, I hope to be an international filmmaker one day!

Allie Scheu
Public Relations Intern

Hi! My name is Allie Scheu and I will be a senior at the University of Denver this fall. I am majoring in Strategic Communications, with minors in Leadership, Sustainability, Spanish and the Denver restaurant industry (not a real minor - I just love food). My ultimate goal in life is to help make the world a more sustainable place, hence my love for the outdoors and animals. I truly believe in the power of media as a communicator, and want to share the message of sustainability throughout the world via the media. I also hope to someday be the owner of a food truck that sells the best sweet potato fries in town and is solar powered.

Nic Turner
Production/Editing Intern

I was born in Denver, Colorado.  I studied film at the University of Colorado in Boulder, graduating in 2010.  I have lived in Denver, Madrid, and Los Angeles, and visited over 10 different countries.  The more that I experience and learn, the more I realize how little I've seen and how little I know.  Sometimes I can't believe how good God is to me; the rest of the time, I'm just not paying attention.  Here is a great quote from my favorite director, Darren Aronofsky, about being a filmmaker:  "The bottom line is: what we do is tell stories. If you want to be a filmmaker, the best thing you can bring to the world is your own story."
