After a breakout role in Fruitvale Station and a recent casting as the Human Torch in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, it is safe to say that Michael B. Jordan knows a few things about what it takes to be successful in the film industry.
He was chosen as the 2014 Sprite films mentor to its student filmmaker finalist at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last week, The Grio reports.
The star took time to work with six promising filmmakers chosen by Sprite to jumpstart their film careers with the life-changing opportunity to helm a short film from script-to-screen.
He offered advice based on his experience and knowledge of what it takes to make it in Hollywood.
“What’s a dream without action or a talent without a stage to set it free?” said Jordan. “Each year Sprite Films finds student filmmakers who have it- the fearlessness and dedication to pursue their passion for film- and supports them to grow their dreams on a national platform. I’m lending my support by meeting with the student finalists to share my story as an actor and what I have learned from my mentors.”
The Green Ribbon Panel Award winner’s short film will run in movie theaters across the country in August. Fans can view and vote for the films now at Sprite.com/films.
