Hunter of the Vale

“Hunter of the Vale” is a modern fantasy story of a woman who protects humanity from the supernatural predators that would threaten them and supernatural entities who humanity would destroy if they knew existed. It is an original story of my own creation which borrows mythical creatures from German, French and Celtic folklore.

News from Justin Germono, RTVF Grad 2012

JGRecent RTVF grad Justin Germono checked in recently with Professor Scott Sublett and offered the following update:

After graduating from the department in the Spring of 2012, I made the move down to Los Angeles diving right into freelance production work, specializing in non-fiction television. I quickly climbed the ranks, landing my first producing job on hit CBS reality series ‘Big Brother’ in the Summer of 2013. Since, I’ve done several more seasons of ‘Big Brother,’ and associate produced other hits such as FOX’s ‘MasterChef,’ CNBC’s ‘Restaurant Startup.’”

I just launched a website, too; www.germono.net.” 

Sounds as if things are going great for Justin! RTVF graduates rock!
