Ciocirlan has worked for PBS for several years as a video editor and motion graphic artist in the promotions department. He was tasked with designing a branding campaign named Eight Delivers, in which he created an array of 30-second promotional videos, including graphic elements and animation. Ciocirlan says that the promos were very powerful and emotional, which actually caused one of his coworkers to repeatedly watch them and tear up. Two of the campaign promos were nominated for the coveted television prize; Ciocirlan took the award for editing.
Ciocirlan also is an entrepreneur, winning grants and even office space at ASU SkySong. He started two businesses, Kromatic Entertainment and Blimee.

Lanly Le is pursuing a BA in theatre with a film and media production concentration. Le headed a group of ASU film students who won the AT&T Golden Mobile Award in the national Campus MovieFest competition in Las Vegas during the summer of 2010. Le wrote and directed the short film, Candid, which starred ASU students Kristine Lin and Hugh Chung and was shot on and around ASU’s Tempe campus. The AT&T Golden Mobile Award was presented to the filmmaker who best creatively used a Samsung phone in his or her story. Le had the chance to meet many inspirational student filmmakers, as well as industry professionals such as director Donald Petrie (Miss Congeniality), and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour). Le feels the coolest part was meeting her favorite film composer, Michael Giacchino (Up, The Incredibles, Lost), as well as many amazing screenwriters. Le says she learned so much and encourages any filmmaker to join the Campus MovieFest competition.
