Writers’ Program student Nia Dixon won wide audience acclaim and official selection at the Baltimore Women’s Film Festival recently for her film “Temporary Loss of Power.” The film, as Dixon explains, is “a brief look at human behavior in a moment of crisis,” and making it is what propelled her to enroll in the Certificate Program in Feature Film Writing where she met her “mentor & teacher” Ron Suppa.
Nia says “UCLA and my classes with Ron Suppa have been my driving force to hone my film-making skills. I’ve learned so much…Ron has guided me to complete a feature of which I’m very proud.”
Ironically, “Temporary Loss of Power” was written as part of her application to the USC Cinema Program. Now, with financing expected for a shoot next year, Nia is riding high on her success, and her plans include UCLA Extension. “The Writers’ Program is a continued source of inspiration and guidance that will only prove to bring out more successes from me in the future.”
