An independent film company started by Chapman University’s film department is wrapping up production on their first feature, Trigger. The fully-functioning production company, Chapman Filmed Entertainment, was designed to produce four to six micro-budget films each year produced, directed and written by Chapman alumni.

It’s not the first time a university has tried to start their own production company. The University of Texas tried it a decade ago and it folded after just four films. But President and CEO Robert Bassett thinks the production-company model will boost Chapman University up to the levels of top film schools like AFI, USC, NYU and UCLA.
