Biz backing USC digital drive

CAA, others pour cash into Zemekis Center

The USC School of Cinema-Television has received gifts of more than $1 million from Creative Artists Agency, David and Elizabeth Kirschner and others for its Robert Zemeckis Center for Digital Arts.

CAA, which previously funded diversity scholarships at the school, is now funding the reception center while the Kirschners are funding the model and scene studio. The 35,000-square-foot center will open in the spring.

“The Zemeckis Center promises to teach students to cultivate their ideas and work with advanced technology so that their potential is endless,” said producer David Kirschner, an alumnus of the School of Cinema-Television.

“It is not just a matter of financial support,” Lee Gabler of CAA said. “It is also significant moral support to invest in the training and subsequent careers of USC film students.”
