CHICAGO — Middlebury native Heath Rumble always dreamed of making movies and telling stories.
At age 8 he took a Middlebury Community Television summer course. In middle school, inspired by the first Spiderman film, he began writing his own superhero comics. At Middlebury Union High School he showed a talent for video editing. That skill helped him win a place at Columbia College Chicago, an arts institute with film and theater programs.
