How’s it going, everyone! My name is Alex Bartz and I am happy to be the newest student blogger for the Marketing Department, here at Liberty University! For the following months, I will be documenting the adventures, on this beautiful campus, and around the vibrant city, of Lynchburg.
Liberty University was quite a distance from my hometown of Dallas, Texas. However, I have traveled 1000’s of miles, as a dual-citizen of Australia and America, plus having family in Europe, so the distance was not a consideration when pursuing my dream, of a career as a filmmaker.
Cinematic Arts have always been a part of my life. I began my acting career at 8 years old, and have had the opportunity to star in national commercials like “Capri-Sun,” co-starring in Liberty University’s “Extraordinary,” as well as being able to act with legends like “Harrison Ford,” in Ender’s Game. My true passion for storytelling extends behind the camera, such as working on a documentary, highlighting the homeless in Dallas; filming a commercial for “Cisco,” and writing and directing short films as part of my degree plan.
Outside the magical world of cinema is… well… the outdoors! I love exploring the world God has made. Whether that is shredding at SnowFlex, mountain biking at Camp Hydaway, or capturing great images on hiking trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Liberty University has it all.
I’m excited to share with you the reasons that inspired me to choose Liberty University as the stepping stone to my future!
