Instead of giving in to senioritis, Darren Rae, ’13 RTVF, and Kevin Yang, ’13 Illustration, embarked on a creative process of Spartan proportions. With Rae as film director and Yang as storyboard creator, the pair made a short film that captures the pride and excitement that all SJSU graduates feel before the big day—from the perspective of Sammy Spartan.
