Frank Schadt left freelance film work in August of 2018 to join NCTV18. He began honing his filmmaking, editing, and directing techniques in 8th grade, when his documentary won runner-up for a High School Emmy. From then he never looked back, creating his own short films while attending film school and working on commercial shoots. Whether undertaking projects headed for local film festivals or national television, he works hard to turn ideas into action. This attitude and his background supports the goals of the Executive Director.
