Meet Our Liaisons

Miranda Gontz ’16

Film Studies and Philosophy Double Major

South Pasadena, California

Academic Interests: Anything and everything Film, but primarily audience/film relations, Classical Hollywood, and the French New Wave. Also Creative Writing and Philosophy.

Hobbies: Knitting, sipping tea, looking at cat pictures, watching movies, looking at my surroundings and imagining shooting a film there, outlining/writing/making/pretending to make films. I also am on the board of WMHC and work with Media Resources as a Videography Fellow!

Favorite Classes: All of the classes are wonderful, but I especially loved Philosophy of Film Theory taught by Tom Wartenberg and Women’s Experimental Cinema with Robin Blaetz. Both classes really helped me become aware of my perspective of film and helped me alter that perspective so that I could become a better student, film analyst, and filmmaker.

Advice for first years: Don’t be afraid to branch out! Take classes on subjects you know nothing about and acquire new interests. This is a safe place for you to discover yourself, so don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. And your professors are always here to help… always go to office hours! They are an invaluable resource and are never short on time to help you out.
