Student of the Semester - Fall 2021 Meet Gabriel S.!

Name: Gabriel

Age: 18

Location: VA

Chosen for: Lights, Camera, Action!


Gabriel enjoys classic rock music of the 70’s. He has golfed for about ten years and works seasonally as an assistant greenskeeper for a local country club. Worst part of the job: having to be on the golf course at 6:00 am. Best part of the job: FREE GOLF! Recently, Gabriel has discovered a passion for films; he especially enjoys watching and studying the movies of the New Hollywood era (circa 1964-1980). 

What Jonathan has to say about Gabriel:

While this has been the first time Gabe has been my student at OTA, I have to say that he has made quite the impression in our LCA course. His vast knowledge of the topic (not just trivia or tropes, but real knowledge of what goes into crafting a great film) and appreciation for the mavericks of American cinema, really has contributed to the overall experience taking place in our classroom sessions, and it shows as well in his assignments.

In other words: “A real Cinderella story… outta nowhere, a former greenskeeper about to become the Masters champion…” Keep on keeping on, Gabe… and watch out for those pesky gophers!

Jonathan Meola, OTA
