David Quan

Committee Member

See that guy sitting in the middle of the theater by himself? That’s David. He loves movies so much he doesn’t mind looking like a lonely weirdo. He loves movies so much he buys theater popcorn and doesn’t eat it. He loves movies so much he got a degree in them. Studying Radio, Television, Film at the University of North Texas with a concentration in Screenwriting, he’s a firm believer in substance over style (though a little style never hurts). Some of his favorite films include Pulp Fiction, The Lord of the Rings, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
