HOW SEAN COUSINS FINDS HUMAN TRUTH IN FILMMAKING

If there's one thing that's for sure about the Head of Collarts' new course in Screen & Media, it's that Sean Cousins is passionate. Over 20 years of filmmaking, Sean has lived in India, filmed bears in Alaska, seen the effects of pollution on national parks and more, but he's not one to spin anecdotes; instead, he's an inspiring advocate for telling human stories through the screen.
