Montini Catholic Senior Accepted into One of the

Top Cinematic Arts Schools in the Country

Montini Catholic High School congratulates senior, Jack Martin, on his acceptance to the University of Southern California's Cinematic Arts School.  "[USC Cinematic Arts School] offers so many endless possibilities that I could not resist," commented Jack on his decision to apply to the University.  "I aspire to be the best, and USC's Cinematic Art School was the one place where I could achieve my goals and share my story with the world."
Jack plans to major to become either a Producer, Director, or Cinematographer. "I have dreams to someday find myself at the Oscars for a project I created that redefines what we know as Film today!"
In the last few years, Jack has made many films and even presented them to the student body at Montini Catholic High School.  "Thanks to my teacher, Mr. Farina (Technology Director and Computer Teacher at Montini Catholic) who has helped me get my films presented in school," remarked Jack.  His latest film was called Reflections. "Reflection was inspired by my older brother, Kevin's, real life. With my brother directing and me controlling the camera work, we were able to create our best work yet!  I hope to continue building my company Martin Revelation Films with my brother."
"Montini Catholic High School has  prepared me for the challenging academics I will experience at USC, but it has also prepared me to get involved in school and to work hard not only with school, and everything else in my life."
Jack Martin is an honor senior from Downers Grove .  He is a member of the National Honor Society and the French National Honor Society at Montini Catholic High School.  Jack is the President of the Film Club and the Secretary of the French Club.  He was a member of the State Champion Football Team, the Boys' Lacrosse Team, Computer Club, French Club, and Math Club.
