Alum Jason Zavaleta Wants to Launch 'Cinematic Movement Focusing on Micro Stories'

Tuesday, August 06, 2019

THRIVE GLOBAL -- During his time at San Francisco State University (B.A., Cinema, 2012), Jason completed more than eight short films, documentaries and music videos. Many of his shorts received international awards at Ideas United’s Campus Moviefest, the world’s largest student film festival, including Best Drama and nominations for Best Director and Best Picture.

“I’d like to see a cinematic movement focusing on micro stories,” Zavaleta said. “Tales deeply personal to people reflecting a singular event, emotion or moment in time. We all have the same emotions, how we experience them is what makes us unique. I’d call it: momentism.”
