In this CLP sponsored by the Department of History, Stunt artist and Furman history and philosophy alumnus Lane Erwin ’15 will reflect on the value of a liberal arts education in the film industry, how the skills he gained as a humanities major benefitted him in unexpected ways, and how the industry is ever evolving to adapt to new entertainment demands.
Erwin is a SAG-AFTRA affiliated performer who has worked in the film industry as a stunt artist since 2015. He has appeared in several major studio productions, including Marvel’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and TV series such as “LA’s Finest” and “NCIS: New Orleans.”
