Tyler Hill (Associate of Applied Arts, Video Production), a student at The Art Institute of Dallas, a campus of South University, took home the top prize from the 5th Annual TXU Energy Light Up the Red Carpet Student Film Contest.  Hill’s film, “The Seeker,” which follows a girl on a quest for energy in a future in which most electricity has been depleted, won the college-level prize.  Hill will share scholarship funding of $7,500 with his school and will also receive video editing software.

The Annual TXU Energy Light Up the Red Carpet Student Film Contest encourages students at the high school and college levels to submit a 3-to-5-minute short film exhibiting original, unique, creative topics inspired by energy. The short films were shown at the Dallas International Film Festival in April.

Hill has competed in numerous film competitions and received several awards, including 1st Place in the 2013 Dallas 24 Hour Video Race.  Aside from his passion for filmmaking, Hill is a veteran.  He served in the United States Marine Corps as a combat photographer and videographer.
