Steven Allan Spielberg, born in Cincinatti, grew up in Haddon Township, New Jersey. When he was an early teenager, Spielberg was already showing a draw to making films as he started filming amateur films with an 8mm camera. He would charge admission to his films while his sister would make popcorn. When Spielberg grew up, he applied to attend the film school at the University of Southern California School of Theater, Film, and Television, but was denied on two seperate occasions. Steven's carreer in film began as an unpaid intern and guest at Universal Studios. While interning, Spielberg create a 26 minute film named Amblin, and with that film became the youngest director ever to be signed for a long-term deal with a major Hollywood studio.
