Manny Rothman

Student filmmaker, graphic & web designer

Lewisburg, PA, USA
Throughout my life, I've been interested in filmmaking, graphic design, web design, typography, and computer programming. Throughout high school, I've been able to strengthen these skills by producing content for my school and for the local community.

Specifically, I've produced content for the Green Dragon Foundation's "Vision 20/20" campaign, Iron Front Cowork, the Bucknell SBDC, and others.
