Derek Lam

Currently an MFA candidate at Columbia University's film division, Derek Lam majored in English as an undergraduate at Cornell, and saw some of his favorite films from the '90s at Cornell Cinema, where he also wrote for the film calendar and served as an undergraduate representative. Besides the non-profit, idealistic project of Caméra-Stylo, he wishes to find a job where he can continue to share his interest in movies from around the world. He still can't believe that he's interning at one of his favorite magazines since high school, Film Comment!

Brian Armbrust

Brian lives in San Francisco, where he pays bills by doing public relations and marketing for a startup media company. His written work has appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle and The Michigan Daily (Ann Arbor). He's perhaps most celebrated, however, for his collection of curricula produced during his years as a high school English/journalism teacher.

Since then, he's generated written works with no concern as to their pedagogical merit. He finds this incredibly satisfying and plans to continue in earnest.
