UH Manoa (KHNL) - Two University of Hawaii students know the secrets behind Superman's return. Both interned on the set of the new movie in Australia last summer.

Chrystal Jameson interned with directors and camera crews on the movie set.

"I guess I didn't really know what to imagine, but it was grander than the scale that I had imagined," Jameson said.

An artist, Matt Ortiz worked with creative teams envisioning character and costume designs.

"I really enjoyed working with the creative teams that develop the story and develop the look and feel of the movie," Ortiz said.

The arrangement was set up by Chris Lee, director of the UH Academy for Creative Media and the movie's executive producer.

"It was really busy and really exciting. So much happening all at once. There was a million things happening all day long."

Both said actor Brandon Routh soars as the new man of steel.

"Very nice, nice person, good person," Jameson said. "Very Supermannish."

"We went out with him one time, couple times and just an average guy," Ortiz said. "Perfect for the role."
