My name is Rusty Barnes, and I am a senior studying Communication and Sociology at Purdue University in Indiana. I have spent the last few years working for a variety of news outlets, writing both sports and feature stories. I love writing in general, but I have yet to find my niche. I also enjoy film and television, so I thought I would give screenwriting a try.
But screenwriting classes are hard to come by where I’m from, so I took to Sydney with hopes to learn more.
Through Purdue, I was fortunate enough to get an internship with OZZYWOOD Films, where I work as an editorial assistant for The Story Department. My focus is in marketing, so I am in charge of finding new and innovative ways to improve the use of social media. I also make sure content for the online workshops is ready to be published.
