Full Sail University (http://www.fullsail.edu), is proud to congratulate Film graduate, Carlos Leon, on being chosen as one of the top five of BusinessWeek's fourth annual "America's Best Entrepreneurs 25 and Under," that received a record number of nominations in its 2008 edition.

Leon, who graduated with his degree from Full Sail in 2003, immediately began working with multimedia entertainment focusing on the independent production business after graduation. He began to build his company from scratch and founded CML Studios (http://www.cmlstudios.net), a full service production facility available to independent producers, filmmakers and photographers for use on music videos, commercials, photo shoots and short films.

"The tools that I learned through Full Sail's Film Program were what I needed to successfully develop CML Studios," said Leon. "My ultimate goal is to create a media conglomerate with assets in various mass media such as television, radio, publishing, movies and the Internet."

CML Studios began doing web design, video production and marketing in 2006. Today, the production studio in North Hollywood, CA, serves clients from all over the country and different parts of the world with full video and photo production. Clients include: Warner Brothers, Discovery Channel, VH1, MTV and Sirius Radio.

BusinessWeek, founded in 1929, is one of the oldest and most respected financial publications. In its fourth year of "America's Best Entrepreneurs 25 and Under," readers were asked to nominate young business professionals who are no more than 25 years old and running their own companies. The list was narrowed down from hundreds of submissions by various successful businesspeople including Virgin CEO, Sir Richard Branson. Profiles of the 25 finalists were posted in early September and readers were asked to vote for the most outstanding. The winning five young entrepreneurs were posted on September 26 on the SmallBiz channel of BusinessWeek's Web site.
