The Media Leader Who is Steven Spielberg

By: Mike Schneid

One of the people who has had a  great impact on the movie industry is Steven Spielberg.   He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1946 and from a young age had a huge attraction to films.  Once college came around, Spielberg lasted one year before he dropped out to try and pursue a job in Hollywood.   Spielberg’s first break into the movie industry came in the form of his film The Sugarland Express which premiered in 1974.  It was his next movie Jaws that gave him his real break into becoming a star movie director.  After this he went on to direct many award winning films such as Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan which are two of his most famous movies.  Spielberg is widely regarded as on of the finest directors around and films with his name on them usually draw in large audiences.  He has really innovated the way modern movies are filmed, and has had a huge impact on the movie industry.
