Connor Rentz’s Film Career Takes Flight with Virgin America

Connor Rentz on the set of his award-winning film, Spectrum
It is difficult to spot Connor Rentz (film and production ’19) without a camera in his hands. Between classes and on the weekends, Rentz can usually be found working on his latest short film, doing anything from editing the script to shooting scenes. Considering his commitment to and passion for filmmaking, it’s no surprise that Rentz’s latest short film, Spectrum, will be his first nationally distributed film. If you happen to find yourself on a Virgin America flight soon, you’ll be able to watch Spectrum on the airline’s in-flight entertainment system, Red, on their “best of the web” feature.
