Born in Cincinnati and raised in the suburbs of Haddonfield, New Jersey and Scottsdale, Arizona, Spielberg started making amateur films while still in his teens, later studying film at California State University, Long Beach. In 1969, first professional work was the 22-minute short Amblin, which was shown at the Atlanta Film Festival, and led to his becoming the youngest director ever to be signed to a long-term deal with a major Hollywood studio at the age of 20.
