Film and media studies grad named to Forbes 30 Under 30 List
Film and media studies graduate Herman Phillips was recognized on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for co-founding Cinapse, a film and television production management app that cuts paper out of the production process.
“It was a big surprise and a huge honor to be on that list,” Phillips said. “It feels a little out of place to be on it, especially with some of the other people who are on the list; there’s someone on the list who is revitalizing the drive-in movie experience; [actress] Miranda Cosgrove is on the list. I’m a very behind-the-scenes person, so getting on the list was kind of jarring in that way. But being recognized for the value we are bringing to the industry was a validating moment for our company.”
