WSIU Radio's Jennifer Fuller talks with filmmaker and SIUC alumnus James Chressanthis, who originally trained as an artist and graduated in 1977 with an M.F.A. from the School of Art & Design. Chressanthis visited the Carbondale campus in January 2011 to talk with students about his career and to share insights about the film industry. The talented filmmaker's cinematography earned two Emmy nominations – one for the film Four Minutes, which documented Roger Bannister's quest to break the four-minute mile barrier, and a second for the mini-series Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows. Chressanthis also shot critical additional 1st Unit photography on the Oscar®-winning film Chicago and has worked on the film Urban Legend, the mini-series The Reagans, “3” (The Dale Earnhardt Story), The Music Man, Eloise at the Plaza and Eloise at Christmastime, Judas Kiss, and Brian's Song. In addition to his film credits, Chressanthis works as a sculptor, painter, mixed media artist, and still photographer.
