Spielberg’s Son Gets Behind Camera at NYFA Film School

October 3, 2002

From BBC News – The eldest son of director Steven Spielberg has completed work on his first film, a short thriller about a couple caught up in a string of murders.

Max Spielberg, 17, wrote, produced, directed, filmed and edited the movie, entitled Snap Shot, during a filmmaking workshop run by the New York Film Academy.

He attended the four-week course, held at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, over the summer.

The film focuses on a tourist couple whose camera becomes mixed up with that of a serial killer, drawing them into the investigation when their photos turn out to be of his victims.

There are no plans for the film to be given a public screening in the near future.

“It will be for his own personal use when he pursues other avenues in the industry,” said a spokesperson for the New York Film Academy.
