Chuck Sheaffer shot his first super-8 film during high school. He received a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Washington and an M.A. and a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, where he studied semiotics and film/media theory as a Harold Leonard Fellow in film studies. In addition to directing, shooting, and editing various film and video projects Chuck is currently working on a couple of screenplays, including a feature-length semi-historical thriller concerning the D.B. Cooper skyjacking incident in 1971. Chuck’s research interests include the evolving history of screen-based performance, and he’s currently writing about the shifting relationship between trans-nationalism and cable television. As an instructor Chuck helped create the “Foundations of Film History” course series here at Cornish, where his additional teaching experiences have included a variety of “Special Topics in Film History” classes as well as the “Creating Digital Drama” course (a collaborative workshop in generative filmmaking). Chuck has also taught at the University of Washington and the University of Minnesota.
