Chad Boseman The Black Panther: A Digital Film Academy Success Story
Former Digital Film Academy student Chad Boseman has been dominating the movie industry since attending our New York film school. He went on to star opposite Harrison Ford in the Jackie Robinson biopic “42” which received positive reviews and raked in $27 million on its opening weekend.
Boseman is definitely a man who how to portray a real-life person onscreen. In fact, it was this reverence for accurate portrayal that almost made him pass on the role of James Brown in the 2014 biopic “Get On Up” directed by Tate Taylor. Originally from the south, Boseman shied away from this part, unsure of whether or not he could do it justice. He reportedly told director Tate Taylor, “We cannot mess this up! I don’t know if I can do it right!” while being courted for the role. When attending DFA Chad took Cinematography and Directing classes (which have since evolved into our One Year Program in Digital Filmmaking including Video Editing, Sound Editing and Design, Screenwriting, Production Management along with elective classes in Web TV Production, Steadicam, Digital Imaging Technician etc.)
He went on to land the starring role of The Black Panther in the Marvel Studios film “Captain America: Civil War” and received a five-picture deal with Marvel Studios. He is currently starring in the highly anticipated Marvel Studio movie “The Black Panther”.
He will appear alongside Angela Bassett, Michael B Jordan and Academy Awards Winners Lupita Nyong’o and Forest Whittaker.
