Brandon Schreur is the Arts and Entertainment editor this year. He is a junior, double majoring in Writing and Film Studies. He is from Holland, Michigan, and this is his first year on the Chimes staff. He has an intense love for all things media, and especially film — watching movies is how he spends almost all of his free time. Some of his favorites are “Inside Llewyn Davis”, “Sing Street”, and “Jurassic Park”, but his favorite guilty pleasure movie is “Pitch Perfect”. He loves talking and writing about media, and his dream in life is to become a professional film critic. He is really excited to discuss pop culture with Chimes readers this year!
