Miguel Brañas knows that being a filmmaker is tough, but as a Film & Television major he’s had the opportunity to find success—through hard work and connecting with the right faculty mentors. He recently received grant funding for his documentary project, “The Man Upstairs,” and has been motivated along the way by CU Denver faculty, Jessica McGaugh. He describes her support as monumental because not only did she push him artistically, but also mentored him through navigating the financial and fundraising side of the filmmaking process.
Miguel likes to take chances in film and views all of his CU Denver Film & Television Department experiences as an opportunity to learn something new and connect with industry professionals to grow as an artist and filmmaker.
“The CU Denver Film & Television faculty show a passion that inspires me to create and be heard." ––Miguel Brañas
