FROM THE EDITOR

A Tale of Two Universities Despite difficult financial times, IU shines with academic achievement ith apologies to Charles Dickens, it is the best of times, it is the worst of times at Indiana University. First, the worst of times. As most alumni already know, IU is bracing for some big budget cuts. State revenue is in free fall, approaching a $2 billion shortfall in the current biennium. All areas of state government are in a belt-tightening mode. IU has been told its state appropriation will be trimmed by $59 million over the remainder of the two-year budget period ending in June 2011. The reductions are on top of an earlier $29 million cut, which had been temporarily softened by federal stimulus money. The reductions come to a 6 percent decrease in state funding. As difficult as that will be for IU — and President Michael A. McRobbie acknowledges, “These cuts undoubtedly will bring some pain.” — the worldwide recession is a reality we can’t escape. Thinking positively, McRobbie notes, “Our goal must be to address the present very difficult situation in such a way that it ultimately strengthens IU.” If we can accomplish that, look out. Indiana University is already in the best of times in some regards. In the span of just a few short months last fall, an IU faculty member received a Nobel Prize (see the November/December 2009 issue) and a student earned a Rhodes scholarship. The faculty member was Professor Elinor Ostrom, who received the Nobel Prize in economics. Ostrom is the Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences and a professor in the School of Public and Environ-

mental Affairs, and she is co-founder and senior research director of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis. She was the eighth person affiliated with IU to receive a Nobel Prize and was the first woman to receive the award in the economics category. Since the announcement in October, she has appeared at numerous functions for the university, and she has pledged to dedicate her half of the $1.4 million award — she shared the prize with University of California Professor Oliver Williamson — to her workshop at IU. I received several notes about our story,

If those two achievements weren’t enough, IU was ranked by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine in January as one of the top 30 “best values” in public colleges, ranking 28th overall. And in late January, the Association of College and Research Libraries named the IU Bloomington Libraries the best in the country (see story, page 13). Indiana University is sitting in pretty tall cotton right now. “Nearly every week it seems IU or a member of the IU community receives some sort of major accolade,” McRobbie

“Indiana University strives to make this ‘the season of Light,’ not ‘the season of Darkness’.” and the operative word regarding IU being home to another Nobel Prize faculty member was “pride.” Just two months after Professor Ostrom’s big news came the announcement that Mutsa Mutembwa had been named a Rhodes Scholar (see story, page 40). Mutembwa, a senior from Zimbabwe with a delightful British-sounding accent, achieved this academic ultimate while engaging in the demanding role of student athlete. She was recruited to IU to play field hockey for coach Amy Robertson. During the past season, Mutembwa was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and helped the Hoosiers to a national ranking, a runner-up finish in the Big Ten Tournament, and an NCAA Tournament berth. A double major in economics and mathematics, Mutembwa hopes to return to her native country to help solve Zimbabwe’s financial struggles.

wrote in a memo to IU faculty and staff announcing the budget cuts. “This kind of recognition reflects the greatness and quality of the work of all IU faculty and staff. “And by using this opportunity to intensely focus on our priorities of strategic hiring and construction, while reducing all other costs as we must, IU will emerge an even better, stronger, and greater university.” So, despite the economic struggles of the times, Indiana University strives to make this “the season of Light,” not “the season of Darkness” in Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities. The goal is for this “winter of despair” to evolve into a “spring of hope.” 쮿

FIRST PERSON

Hollywood Hoosier Using his IU contacts, 2009 graduate breaks into show business By Austin Francalancia, BA’09

y ultimate goal is to become a film producer. Using the Hollywood Hoosiers (an IU Alumni Association affiliate group) and the IU Alumni Association’s alumni directory, fellow IU students and I have given ourselves a chance at breaking into the entertainment industry so that our ultimate goals could one day become a reality. Without these two programs, getting my foot in the door would have been a much harder task. After gaining trust and respect from fellow IU alumni, they were more than willing to lend a helping hand to us recent graduates and current students.

M

many follow-up e-mails, I set up roughly 10 more sit-down meetings with some of the IU alumni I had met in January. In March 2009, I used my spring break to go back to Los Angeles to meet with many of the same people. In my attempts to meet with J.C. Spink, partner at Benderspink, whose work includes The Hangover, A History of Violence, The Ring, and the American Pie films, I met with his assistant, Christopher Cosmos, who also coordinates the internship program. After meeting with Christopher, I had an internship lined up prior to graduation. Internships have great importance in the entertainment industry, especially during the recession and hiring freezes. The entertainment industry is completely different

“The best advice was that if I didn’t know if I should be doing something, I shouldn’t do it.” It happened like this: More than a year ago, 14 IU students and I took a weeklong networking trip to Los Angeles. The goal was to meet with as many Indiana University alumni as possible, and other various industry professionals, with the hope of landing an internship, temp position, or even a part-time position in the entertainment industry. The brainchild of the operation, Jack Shannon, BS’09, coordinated meetings with 22 IU alumni in the entertainment industry. Using the Hollywood Hoosiers and the IUAA’s alumni directory network base, Jack, myself, and the other IU students e-mailed and called IU alumni, hoping to land a sit-down for the January 2009 trip. The trip was a success, and after

from any other industry, and it has a clearcut totem pole of succession. Everyone starts at the bottom. When you’re at the bottom, you do everything you’re told, keep your head down, and keep your mouth shut. The best advice I got in my first month was that if I didn’t know if I should be doing something, I shouldn’t do it. Also in March, I sat down with Luke Ryan, vice president of productions at MGM. Luke later sent my résumé and information to MGM’s human resources department, and I was put into a “temp pool” for a possible temporary position. A month before my road trip across the country, I sent out my résumé to a couple IU alumni in hopes of having some more solid leads before my arrival.

Dave Neustadter, BA’02, creative executive at New Line Cinema, was very enthusiastic about bringing opportunity to fellow IU alumni, so he forwarded my résumé to a friend of his at Village Roadshow Pictures Entertainment (Where the Wild Things Are, Sherlock Holmes, and Sex and the City 2). After a phone interview, I had a second internship lined up. With these two huge leads, my confidence in moving to Los Angeles grew. When I made the move to L.A. on June 18, I set up a meeting with the hiring coordinator at MGM to follow up on the “temp pool” possibility. After sitting down with the hiring coordinator, I received a temporary position. The only reason I received the temp position was because of Luke Ryan’s recommendation and reference. Dave Neustadter once told me that the entertainment industry is summed up in four words from Tom Hanks’s last lines in Saving Private Ryan: “Earn this. Earn it.” Simply put, earn the right to get picked up for an entry-level job. If you’re expecting a job right out of college, without paying your dues, you won’t make it in this industry. The only way I will have a shot at being a producer in Hollywood is if I earn it. The only way I can earn it is if I start at the bottom, like everyone else, and do my part. Everyone likes to try to stand out, but the best way to stand out in this industry is to do your job, no questions asked. People will notice, and when they think you’re ready, your name will be called. 쮿 Austin Francalancia, BA’09, is the lead analyst for MGM’s Digital Library in Los Angeles. He says, “It’s a full-time job that could possibly open doors to greater opportunities. Patience is key.”
