Jensen, whose credits include The Godfather and An Officer And A Gentleman, brings 40 years of experience to his new role at Chapman University’s Dodge College Of Film And Media Arts.

“Johnny Jensen brings another layer of breadth and depth to our outstanding cinematography faculty,” Dodge College Dean Bob Bassett said.

“To enable our students to learn from ASC cinematographers such as Jensen and Bill Dill, also an ASC member of our faculty, gives them the very best education drawing on the experience of top, working cinematographers.”

“Letting your eyes be the conduit to your heart, are amongst the things I intend to teach cinematography students at Dodge College,” Jensen said. 

“Finding inspiration for storytelling with a visual language is achieved with collaboration from all other artists involved in the process of making a film. It is my belief that learning one’s craft sets the foundation to build from one’s heart.”
