Documentary on Playing with Power

Walt was a USC doctoral student in Critical Studies, who was writing a dissertation on Masculinity and the Tarzan movies. Like me, he was interested in multimedia and had a background in production, so he was happy to shoot the Playing with Power documentary, especially the part where I interviewed young kids playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game at the arcade on the Santa Monica Pier. Walt was also good at web-design—so good, in fact, that he was hired by Armani. He decided this was a more lucrative and more challenging career than teaching.
