My recent completion of the MFA Film Production program at Florida State University’s College of Motion Picture Arts in August has been a huge accomplishment in my educational career. I feel very lucky to have been brought into a program that only accepts 30 students a year among hundreds of applicants. The two year program was rigorous, to say the least, with year-round classes, hours and hours on set (12 hours a day), and being part of the crew and creative collaborator for my fellow students’ films. I’ve come out having directed three short films, written many screenplays, and with a varied skill set.
Now it’s time to get back out there and look for work. I am excited for this new venture. Before grad school I received my undergrad in journalism and worked as a production specialist and freelance editor. Having a variety of skills, including film production, video editing, journalism, creative writing, and design, I hope to find a job that will be a good fit for me and one that I can bring my many experiences.
