Graduate student Austin Formato hit the jackpot with his Coke commercial that is being shown on 27,000 movie screens nationwide this month. The School of Theater, Film and Television student won the 2008 Coca-Cola Refreshing Filmmaker's Award with his 50-second film that combines live action and animation, making paintings in an art museum come to life.
Besides having his work seen during May, predicted to be one of the biggest months at the box office because of blockbusters such as the new Indiana Jones movie, he takes home $10,000. See his winning film at www.ccrfa.com/ccrfa.
