Spotlight: Vox Video Production Coordinator

Introducing Eric Dugal, Vox Culture's Video Production Coordinator! Eric's in charge of the editing and final production of Vox's video projects and promotional material, and plays a vital role in the planning and preparation of creative visual ideas. Be sure to keep an eye out for some of our upcoming video productions to get a taste of Eric's work!

My name is Eric Dugal, and I'm a film student at the Art Institute of Houston.  My passions are not just for humanitarian aid, but for good friends, and a good story.  There are two things I can't pass up, a good story and a good debate.  There are many things that I want to do in this world, but I really want to help humanity reach a higher level of cooperation and caring then ever before, and I believe Vox Culture can help make that happen.

What is your favorite ice cream?
Chocolate is my favorite ice cream; however, I may stray from chocolate from time to time, but I will always stay loyal to my favorite flavor of chocolate.
How can film/video, in your opinion, impact people's views on social issues?
A picture is worth a thousand words, and film is just many, many pictures moving very fast.  Then add a music, and good story, and you can move people in ways you couldn't even imagine.  A beautifully ordered shot with many moving images coupled with a stirring score can bring people to tears.  A film can be so powerful that you don't even need words to convey your feelings or what you want others to feel.
Which film or movie director has had the greatest impact, or left the deepest impression on you?
There are so many good directors that it's hard to pick just one that impacted me the most.  If I had to pick just one, it would be my friend who directed us in a short film that we made years ago.  I had so much fun filming it and then helping create the finally product that I eventually changed my entire life to pursue a directing career of my own.
