Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2008 - Full Sail University (www.fullsail.edu), welcomed Full Sail graduate Darren Lynn Bousman, acclaimed Director of the horror film series Saw II, III & IV, to its Full Sail Live facility on Monday, November 17, 2008 for a live screening of his latest film, Repo!

Repo! The Genetic Opera, was released in August 2008 and is distributed by LionsGate Entertainment and produced by Twisted Pictures, the same companies involved in the successful Saw series.

Bousman, who has embarked on a college tour to promote the film, returned to Full Sail University where he achieved his degree in Film in 2002. With a projector donated by SWANK Audio Visual, the event provided an exclusive screening to over 200 students and fulfilled Bousman's hope to share Repo! with future filmmakers who are eager to learn from his experience in the industry.

"Having the opportunity to return to Full Sail where I learned my craft and being able to share my work with the students and faculty was a truly rewarding experience," said Bousman. "It is my hope to inspire even one student to pursue their dreams just as I did, and place their unique footprint on the film industry."

Dave Franko, Program Director for Film further added, "Watching Darren's film and having the opportunity to hear him speak is not only an incredible lesson for our current students, but it is also a very proud moment for our faculty and staff. He is an inspiration to our students and a testament to our curriculum."
