He went to California State University Long Beach, but dropped out to pursue his entertainment career. He gained notoriety as an uncredited assistant editor on the classic western “Wagon Train” (1957). Among his early directing efforts were Battle Squad (1961), which combined World War II footage with footage of an airplane on the ground that he makes you believe is moving.

He also directed Escape to Nowhere (1961), which featured children as World War Two soldiers, including his sister Anne Spielberg, and The Last Gun (1959), a western. All of these were short films. The next couple of years, Spielberg directed a couple of movies that would portend his future career in movies. In 1964, he directed Firelight (1964), a movie about aliens invading a small town. In 1967, he directed Slipstream (1967), which was unfinished. However, in 1968, he directed Amblin’ (1968), which featured the desert prominently, and not the first of his movies in which the desert would feature so prominently.

Introduction

Ah, kids these days. Living in giant houses in LA, driving around in Hummers, spending most of their time at shopping malls with their massive discretionary spending accounts. Hosting award ceremonies, getting paid huge sums to show up at club openings even though they’re too young to touch alcohol. Going on to be fashion designers and DJ’s and models and actors. Getting extorted by their rehab-bound, sex tape toting ex-boyfriends, falling asleep on massive piles of Texas Booger Sugar. Ah, kids these days.

Life Story

Conrad’s interest in fashion design began at a very young age, when a neighbor taught her to draw and helped her make clothes for her Barbie doll. Isn’t that fucking cute? This passion led her to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Conrad attended for one semester but eventually transferred to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, where she currently majors in product development.

Conrad landed an internship at Teen Vogue while filming season one of The Hills. According to Lisa Love, the West Coast editor of Vogue who evaluated Conrad for the internship position, the reality star had to interview successfully in order to get the job, “regardless of what the cameras wanted.”
