Movie executive visits Flagler College

Paul Cohen

Paul Cohen, an independent motion picture executive, spoke Wednesday to students at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla.
Cohen is director of Florida State University's Torchlight Program, which teaches students about the business side of the motion picture industry.


A one-page ad like this one in the New York Times can cost more than $180,000, Cohen said. He talked about more affordable ways to promote movies.

Cohen also showed examples of student film work, including Rundown, an award-winning psychological thriller. The movie "tells the harrowing tale of a television news reporter who must cover the story of the hit-and-run crime she committed while driving to her debut as an anchorwoman," this FSU article says.

The movie, which lasts less than 15 minutes, won a Student Academy Award in 2007.
