When Carl Daikeler '86 entered Ithaca College as a corporate organizational media major (similar to IC’s current B.S. in communication management and design), he had no idea that he would eventually be rallying to end the trend of obesity in the United States.


The students selected for the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar Program have big shoes to fill. They combine their undergraduate careers at Ithaca College with community service, a civil rights trip, and international excursions to expand their own worldviews.


How did the director of last year’s critically acclaimed Never Let Me Go discover his passion for filmmaking? It probably started with the Kodak Instamatic his photography-buff father bought him when he was nine, or perhaps it was the darkroom his dad built him when he was 12. But one thing’s for certain: Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which he saw twice as a boy, was hugely influential. “I was really struck by that film; it really overwhelmed me,” says Mark Romanek ’81. “One day it oc­curred to me that maybe if I borrowed my uncle’s Super 8 camera I could make a story movie rather than just a home movie. When I was about 15 years old, I knew that I would be a film director.”
