|PRODUCER / DESIGNER:||"Flight From Shadow". Wheel of Time inspired Film.||This film’s screenplay by Blake Casselman is based on an early chapter from The Eye of the World, first in the epic Wheel of Time book series by Robert Jordan. BYU’s Professor of Literature and renowned author Brandon Sanderson finished the book series after Jordan’s death. The Wheel of 9 Production company was formed with executive producer Hraefn Wulfson and producer Jennifer McGrew overseeing the film’s extensive preproduction. Our shops designed and crafted the costumes, sets, props, miniatures and practical effects. McGrews donated the workspace as well as funding to purchase the needed fabrics, leathers and costume materials plus lumber and hardware for set and prop construction. Staff, interns and friends in our creative community donated many hours to build the film’s physical assets. Dedicated, Utah-based filmmakers, actors and technical crew generously gave their time, expertise and equipment to this entire project! You can see the complete cast and crew credits on the film’s IMDB page here.|

How I’ve Developed My Writing Courses:
NYU’s teacher training was profound. As grad students under the tutelage of the nonpareil Pat Hoy, we learned how to think about our thinking. We learned ways to unpack our ideas about what we wanted our students to learn and practice, and then to pair our ideas with techniques for teaching them not only how to do it but also how to talk (to themselves and to each other) about how they were doing it. The experiences in that program and with my students were so energizing that they compelled me to teach writing for more than a decade.
In both my beginning and intermediate classes, I’ve asked students to find, read and incorporate peer-reviewed authors and articles (related to their majors or to their hobbies) so they can acclimate to some of the issues, styles and purposes of writing within different professional fields. This does not have to be boring at all! Additionally, I hate that most professors do their students a disservice by postponing these responsibilities. Students aren’t infants and it is wrong to treat them as such. Morally, we owe students the opportunity to see samples that they will be asked to emulate. They need to practice evaluating and writing about these samples, so the expectations aren’t a mystery and students don’t struggle to produce work only to have it ravaged by capricious and arbitrary professors who don’t actually tell students what’s expected from their papers (I urge students to always ask to see sample papers in any major or class).
In my introductory and intermediate classes, I’ve required that we all learn and practice using MLA style citations, with an eye toward learning other styles that may be relevant to different majors and careers.
I assign students to research and give class presentations on rhetorical fallacies,to introduce one other to some of the strategies and pitfalls of discourse. This has always been an empowering and popular assignment.
Finally, my courses have always included assignment progressions which lead to completed film essays. I’m so grateful to Alfie Guy at NYU for this idea. The film essay assignments have always been popular and have resulted in some of the most engaging, thoughtful and muscular writing my students achieve during our time together. In a series of writing projects I ask them to incorporate some film glossary terms using active language while describing how films (whichever each student chooses to write about) presents its subject matter, theme or characters.
I also ask them to find and read a few professional film reviewers to analyze their audiences and strategies, plus to read a professional or technical paper or two about a topic or problem presented in the film. The goals and results of this writing progression underscore that writers can be professional and poetic at the same time. It’s my favorite teaching series, ever, because it asks students for such a great blend of scholarly acknowledgement of other’s views along with their personal reflection about meaning and value related to how films present what they present. Many students have told me it’s been their favorite essay assignment, too.
Education 1105: University Orientation
FYE is the First Year Experience Course- for early enrollment students, historically underrepresented and nontraditional students. Its core curriculum includes skills development and review in reading, test-taking, time management, diversity awareness and student resources.

Through my shop’s relationship with the Fashion Institute at Salt Lake Community College, we’ve been able to give students challenging patternmaking and fabrication projects that require all their training and innovative abilities. Our long association with the Fashion Institute directly enhances the creative services that McGrew Studios can offer our public.
Other individuals self-select in finding their way to us. We’ve overhired or subcontracted numerous artists, stitchers and costume technicians from this pool.
Occasionally, and upon referral, we have accepted students who were not officially seeking internship credits through their school program.
