Film expertise
When it comes to telling stories, we all have one to tell. But for some, storytelling is a calling, a mission, a way of life. Such is the case for Camden, New Jersey-born Rahim Handy, who now runs Clear Motion Films, a video production company in Texas that is dedicated to telling stories of self-improvement and social change, Tech Bullion reported. Handy, who is a UT Arlington alumnus, said what most inspired him was his experience in the UTA’s film program.
