Lester Cohn ’87

Lester Cohn ’87 looks back: “CalArts changed my life in 1986 when I was fresh out of high school and off to Southern California. While it took me years to realize, all those incredible experiences I shared—in that place, with those people—I carry them with me today. Ever grateful for the life lessons learned. For the past 21 years I’ve produced, directed, shot, and edited here in Chicago and abroad. I’ve been quite fortunate to work with Warner Bros. Records on many projects, large brands, advertising, and of course, charity work. I never finished my studies at CalArts (ran out of money) but I carry those fond memories with me, remembering the place and the people that helped form my artistic mind.”
