This past spring and summer Gyselle Cuevas served as a production assistant on the set of an independent film, thanks to support from the College of Fine Arts Medici Circle donors.

#MediciMondays

Gyselle is a junior majoring in Film and Television at the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television. She worked on the independent film, ‘The Long Walk of Carlos Guerrero,’ shot in Tucson, as a production assistant and assistant camera. She assisted with maintaining the camera, selecting the appropriate lenses and filters for each scene. She was responsible for slating each shot and generally supported the cast and crew through all stages of production.

The financial support provided through the Medici Award was used to cover travelling and living expenses.

The film tells the story of a man and young girl who get stranded in the desert of Southern Arizona. It was her first experience on a film set.

“I feel incredibly blessed to have worked with the cast and crew, and to feel like I was a significant part of something important and beautiful. I can’t help but express my gratitude to Sylvia and Herb Burton for this incredible opportunity. I am extremely grateful as this will impact my future as I seek opportunities as a Hispanic film student.”
