Cordel Blair

  • Undergraduate Student Ambassador
  • Major: Media Arts and Science


Hometown: Indianapolis

High School: Decatur Township School for Excellence 

Career goal: Film industry, so I can show people that they’re not alone in their struggles.

About: I am a third-year Media Arts and Science student, specializing in Digital Storytelling and Video Production. I aspire to learn modern techniques in filmmaking, so I can attempt to be an innovative force in the industry.  

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, and I always loved watching movies and shows. When I watched “Jurassic Park,” I said out loud. “I finally know what I want to do when I get older.”

I have had the opportunity to learn film at SoIC, and more. We are one of Indianapolis’s best-kept secrets.  Through the school, I was able to meet the designer of Thanos’s war armor in “Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

I am also one of the officers who are helping to rebuild the video production group, Macguffin Media, on campus.

Once I felt like I didn’t belong. Through the friends that I have made, I am proud to say I was so wrong.  As a new ambassador I want to help people who are in the same position as me. With that in mind, feel free to reach out to me if you see me in the halls, I am here to help!
