Q&A With First-Year Film Student: Josue Hilario  

Film student Josue Hilario is from Green Bay, WI., and finished his first year of college. Before coming to PUC, he had never visited the west coast and wanted a new experience. Since Josue enjoys making videos and loves exploring creativity through film, he knew pursuing a film major was the perfect fit for him. Believing PUC has the best film program among all the SDA universities, Josue decided to attend PUC. He loves the diversity of the Pioneer’s family and having the guidance to create and achieve personal goals.

What do you like about PUC’s film program? 

I love the freedom of being able to create whatever I want. The Film department is good at giving us the resources to create whatever we want.

What class have you enjoyed the most, and why?

Short scriptwriting because it allowed me to explore a new avenue that I never expected to like. 

What are some important things you’ve learned from the film department? 

I have learned to be more organized throughout my creative processes.

Why would you recommend this program? 

The film program at PUC is not cookie cutter. They help you achieve your personal goals.

What advice do you have for high school students interested in pursuing your major? What should they expect or prepare for? 

My advice would be to find opportunities to create outside of class. Being successful in the film industry is a lot of work, and it requires determination and skills. The only way to get better at your craft is to never stop creating and exploring your creative side.

What activities or events does your program throw during the school year? 

The film department is planning to take us to the sonscreen film festival.
