Roger Corman to fund student films

Director-producer Roger Corman (“Little Shop of Horrors,” “Wild Angels”), through his company New Horizons, will provide production funding of $100,000 to one or more UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television students to produce feature-length motion pictures. Corman has pledged to donate one-third of the profits of the completed films to the department. The king of the low-budget cinema, Corman has nurtured such filmmakers as Martin Scorsese, James Cameron and Francis Ford Coppola.
