  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Brian Dzyak, ’91, cameraman advises students to focus, enjoy experience

“Titanic,” “We Are Marshall,” “American Reunion,” “The Bourne Legacy” and “Fast & Furious 6” are just a few films listed on Brian Dzyak’s resume, and his IMDB page.

“I shoot stuff they’ll use to promote the movie before release,” said Dzyak, a 1991 alumnus who graduated with a bachelor’s in Radio, Television and Film.

After Dzyak graduated, he knew he wanted to be in the movie business, but not many people knew how to do that in Ohio.

So he packed up and moved to Los Angeles. Once he was there, he slowly met people and learned how to be a cameraman, he said.

The skills Dzyak learned while at the University helped him in his career, he said.

“A lot of what I do has to be done quickly and efficiently, I was taught that workflow by people at Channel 27,” he said.

He always tried to be efficient while at the University because he wanted to spend as much time working on producing films as he could, he said.

Once, he had two papers to do and he knew there was “no way to do both,” so he managed to get the same topic for both and wrote one paper.

“I got an A on one and an A- on the other,” he said. “It worked out okay, that’s the kind of lesson that I try to use in the real world and in other things I do to be as efficient as possible without cutting corners.”

During his career, a few words from a coworker at WBGU stuck with Dzyak.

“[He] said ‘maximize your location,’” he said.

This was a valuable lesson for Dzyak, he also had some advice for students.

“Enjoy the college experience because life is short and it really does speed up after you leave,” he said. “College is really setting you up for everything you’re going to do afterwards so you have to focus to some extent and really focus on what it is you want to do.”
