UT goes hollywood with Burnt Orange Productions
Austin's film scene has been gradually developing a repuation for independent
filmmaking over the last decade. The latest addition to the city's film
scene is UT's Burnt Orange Productions.
"Burnt Orange was created to fulfill what we saw as a gap in the existing program," said Schatz. "That's this idea to create an independent production company that would produce low-budget independent feature films and give the students a chance to learn while doing."
Carolyn Pfeieffer, who has been a part of many independent films in Hollywood, came to Austin to head up the UT production company because she likes the passion she found here.
"Our dreams are big," Pfeiffer said. "We'll have to prove ourself and we'll become identified with our tastes from the pictures that we make and the filmmakers that we work with."
