Behind the Scenes: The Ones to Watch

A few Augusta University professors have learned how to blur the line that normally separates fantasy and reality in their classes. And Senior Photographer Phil Jones and I were tasked with doing the same with this story.

We originally planned one photo shoot for each professor: Drs. Ruth McClelland-Nugent, Brian Armstrong and Craig Albert. So we began our odyssey by visiting the offices of each professor. But as we met with each one, we realized office pictures wouldn’t capture the grand scale of the blockbuster movies they were talking about. We were determined to transform our professors into stars onstage.
