UNCG alumnus making waves on ‘Outer Banks’

One of the most popular series binge watched around the globe during the pandemic quarantine was “Outer Banks,” the hit Netflix television series that premiered last spring.

The show is about a group of teenagers hunting for treasure on a picturesque island called the Outer Banks.

The cinematographer behind all of those beautiful sunset scenes is former UNCG student Brad Smith, who studied in what is now the Department of Media Studies. Smith credits professor Frank Donaldson’s class on Charlie Chaplin with helping him understand how to become a better filmmaker.
