Franz Castillo

Franz’s love for storytelling and creating content inspired him to join the FVP program, where he has since been able to express himself in a more creative way. Growing up, he realized how much he loved to take pictures and videos, and he found it impressive how one can tell so much story within a still image, or a motion picture. His experience here at SAIT has made him realize how much he loves the work associated with making movies. And although he tends to gravitate more towards office work and the Camera Department, he has since gained a passion for stills photography. With plans to pursue photojournalism after he graduates, his main goal is to become an on-set photographer in the future.


His favourite movie is A Brighter Summer Day (1991). With some of his favourite directors being Hiromasa Yonebayashi, Edward Yang and Bong Joon-Ho.
