USC School of Cinematic Arts Bryan SingerIt is always good to see someone who is blessed with a good fortune, selflessly sharing some of it with others. Bryan Singer did something of the sort, when he donated $5M to USC School of Cinematic Arts. Singer is a big shot Hollywood director no doubt, but parting with $5 Million is still not an easy task for anyone. Turns out, Singer earned his Bachelor’s degree from the school back in 1989 and everything that happened next with his career, as they say is history. Therefore it seems, Singer wanted to show his gratitude and what better way to show your gratitude than to donate a huge sum of money.

Well, the school in return also wants to show Singer its gratitude, which is why the school will name its critical studies division the Bryan Singer Division of Critical Studies. When you have millions of dollars stashed away in the bank and have acquired all the comforts that life has to offer, you look to satisfy yourself by doing something that has some meaning and if you are remembered for these deeds even after your death, all the better. In other words, Singer’s was a great gesture and in return, thanks to the school naming a division after him, he will be remembered for generations to come.

 You could say it’s a human being’s perpetual craving for some sort of immortality that prompts such generous gestures. Many would argue that,USC School of Cinematic Arts Bryan Singer donation Singer’s selfless gesture is being painted into a selfish one by over-analyzing the whole thing. But, on the contrary if every human being who is blessed with a good fortune does what Singer has recently done, it would make the world a much happier place to live in, and so what if the person in return wants a pat on the back.

Singer on his part explained his reason for making the donation and was quoted as saying “In a way, I began my career in the Division of Critical Studies at USC. Watching great films and learning how to think about film from the faculty transformed me as an artist and as a person.  I am honored to give back to the division and the school, which gave me so much”. Here’s hoping others take a page out of Singer’s book, at least in the hope of immortality if not anything else.
