A Note from Dominic Matich, Film Connection Graduate

A Note from Dominic Matich, Film Connection Graduate

Chelsy Jensen - Film Connection GraduateChelsy Jensen, New York, NY
"The first couple weeks, he (my mentor) had me right away building my website, getting business cards, connecting me with some people through email so that was a great opportunity and then he had me reading scripts, and then once I found the script that I felt really strongly about, I contacted Tom, my mentor, we wrote up an auction, we had a couple of writers sign up, and then from there I was posting jobs on Craigslist, on any website that I could find, and he actually had another director that he had worked with so we interviewed with a couple directors…” Read More

Put What you Learn into Practice

Korey Hehn - Film Connection GraduateKorey Hehn, Princeville, Oregon
“As a young girl, I have also always wanted to be a writer. So as I worked my way through high school, I really tried to figure out what I was going to do with my life, coming to the realization that I really wanted to be a part of making movies. You see, films have such a profound impact on the people who watch them: Even if a person does not like the movie they happen to watch, they will always remember at least little pieces of it because of the undeniable ability of moving pictures to permeate thoughts.” Read More

 
Build your resume as you learn on the job!

Janna Russell - Film Connection GraduateJanna Russell, Atlanta, Georgia

Before I knew it, and was even a graduate of the program, I had already begun building my resume filled with production experience for several music videos, as well as actually have been paid for my work as a production coordinator! The exposure during the Film Connection course of the apprenticeship (externship) and the knowledge I acquired is invaluable. I would not have had the same experience in the classroom alone.” Read More

 
Some students get paid work right after graduation!

Austin Willard - Film Connection GraduateAustin Willard, Brooklyn, New York

Learn Camera and Lighting on the Job

Derek Sorenson - Film Connection GraduateDerek Sorenson, Albuquerque, New Mexico

My mentor and I have developed a positive relationship in and outside of work. Not only have I gone on several shoots with my mentor, but he also has me actively working in his video business.” Read More

 
Graduate Gerald Vogt now works on feature films

Gerald Vogt - Film Connection GraduateGerald Vogt, Colorado Springs, Colorado
“Once I made the decision to the join the Film Connection, I jumped right on in. The first course I took within the Film Connection was specifically to focus on editing. My training really developed my skills in both sides of the production by tying both pre-production and post-production together. As the course continued, I began to see my skills really start to take shape, with my mentor pushing me in directions that made me stronger. Also, on the places where I was weaker, they really helped me out. Anytime I had questions, I would go back to my curriculum assigned through the program, and there the answer was…” Read More

 
Trent's mentor offered him a position at his studio:

Trent Jones - Film Connection GraduateTrent Jones, Austin, Texas
“While in the Film Connection program, I have had some great help from my mentor to get me through all of the assignments, and being able to work in a real studio has been amazing. Each lesson was easy to understand, and I was also given many different books so if I couldn’t figure out the answer in my workbook, I had a variety of resources to help me study. One of my favorite books that I was given was a Brief History Of Film. I was fascinated by how far the world of filming has progressed over the years, and it really has opened my eyes to all of the different genres I had been missing out on for so very long. I began to learn the inner workings of an office and also started to get hands on experience with many different kinds of editing software.” Read More

 

 

More Student Success Stories

Why did I wait so long?
Why did I wait so long?

“For the past couple of days I’ve been working on my film reel. This has been a treat because I’ve gotten a chance to go through all my old work, some of which I haven’t watched in a long time. Adobe Premier is becoming more and more familiar to me. Also I’ve been reading up about aspect ratio. I know what it is but, not the proper measurements for different formats. Other than that just really enjoying my time here and trying to soak up as much info as possible.”

First for Everything
First for Everything

“Had my first session with Jason yesterday and I have to say that I’m already excited to go to the next one. We built a cinema rig for an upcoming shoot and just UHG cameras, I love them. I’ve been told next time I get to try my hand at building it myself, so that’ll be interesting. Also got three screenplay ideas cranked out and chose one of them to go further with today. I’m now ready to have a movie watching marathon since I was collecting titles from chapter one to watch later; I will also have some adding to my list as research for the screenplay I’ll be writing. Time to make some popcorn and get to watching!”

New Direction
New Direction

“I just wanted to use this opportunity to really experiment with all the steps of making a short film. For my first project, “Ghost Killaz” I chose to write, direct, compose, and edit. Through that experience I was really able to find my strengths and weaknesses as well as get a better Idea of what I enjoy doing most while working on a film, as of now I really enjoy writing and directing.”

We are wrapping our shoot this week.

“It has been very informative working on this set. It has been interesting to see how relationships for. And how quickly these strong bonds can be made within a department. Many of the people might have meet each other before working on this project but by the end of it many would go to bat for each other. It has been an interesting progression watching as this develops. That being said I am sure that there will be a similar process on the next set. Where people don’t really know each other and will have to prove that they have value to each other. The other thing that I am really looking forward to is seeing the final product. It will be very educational to see what the fruits of our labor look like on screen. I know what some of the choices people made look like in the moment, but the real question is how they will play on screen after we have had some time away to digest the scene that we had just built. It will also be educational to see how the effects that we making turn out on screen.”

Learned a valuable lesson at the shoot.
Learned a valuable lesson at the shoot.

“On Wednesday we began work at 9am at the Ford’s Fitness center. On this day I worked on recording sound. My mentor was brought on to be a camera man during this production. One lesson I will take away from this experience is that a director must communicate with his/her crew. The director did not do this with us and on the first day we did not capture what he wanted. I believe that it is important to communicate with everyone beforehand to insure that you as the director get what you want.”

These past few weeks I have had the opportunity to work on a film set.

“These past few weeks I have had the opportunity to work on a film set. It has been a very interesting experience. I have found it fascinating to see how each department has their own niche on set. And how the different departments coordinate through the AD and others to make the best possible picture arrive on screen. The other thing that I find really interesting is to see how an idea will start from the script, be molded by the director, and then used by the director of photography. The director of photography will use the idea to get an idea of the atmosphere he needs to build for the scene at hand. He will then give the idea to the gaffer, who then gives it to the electricians and grips. They then build the atmosphere with lights and other equipment. While they are doing that hair and makeup are getting the actors ready for the light and the art department makes sure that everything is ready for the set. There are all of these moving parts coordinating to make a set work. I think that it is awesome and it has been a lot of fun.”

We were shooting a commercial

“My next trip out with Ahptic Productions was and early morning, but a long hard working day.  We were shooting a commercial for Simplified Tax and Accounting Services Company.  They wanted to get their marketing out for everyone to see.  Are cameras were set up on a sliding dolly and a 48″ camera slider.  We started off at the company’s main location over in Lansing, MI.  We filmed two spots out of the whole place and took about twenty five takes total.  The hours went by fast, but we got what we needed to be done.”

--

 

I learned that it’s all about time management

“For Week 2, I woke up at 3 A.M because Jon was doing a shoot for The Paper Store in New Hampshire. I was very tired, but I was also excited; it was my first shoot ever, so I was ready for whatever. We got everything going at around 6 A.M; I helped Jon and the other interns with the dolly and then I helped Jon’s lighting assistant. Overall, I thought the shoot went smooth. I thought Jon was very professional and always on the ball going from shot to shot; we finished up at around 9 A.M. He got some action shots of shoppers and then some basic merchandise shots. I learned that it’s all about time management; you only have a certain amount of time to film, so you need to use it wisely.”

--

 

It was refreshing to see everyone pitching in

“This past week I was able to be on location during a production. We had a pretty small crew but it was very interesting nonetheless. I got to see how a guerrilla crew goes about getting everything done that a production needs to get done. And how on a film set there needs to be little ego because things have to get done. It was refreshing to see everyone pitching in to try and get the shots that we needed to get for the production.”

I’m roughly at the halfway point in my story
I’m roughly at the halfway point in my story

“I’m roughly at the halfway point in my story. I’m pushing myself to writing as much as I can muster, day by day. Not giving up now. Haven’t met up with Marcelo in a while, but it’s reasonable considering where I stand in terms of the chapter lessons we’ve covered, and how I need to finish my script.”

--

 

I’m going to finish what I started.
I’m going to finish what I started.

“I discussed with John Raffo, in regards to my progress slowly down a bit on writing. I explained to him that my discipline has been taking a considerable toll, as I told him that I feel the pressure of time constraints and pressure from others, as if I had deadline to commit to. John told me, and I completely understand and agree, that the worst offender and last thing that a creative artist should worry about, is time. He then suggested that I could schedule another day with my mentor to finish up my screenplay’s first draft, as the absence of the thought of anything to worry about will greatly assist me in my writing discipline and progress. I am grateful of my screenwriting mentor’s encouragement, advice, and thorough logistics and common knowledge towards a writer’s creative process. Or rather, a writer’s journey. I’m going to finish what I started.”

--

 

I found it very interesting to see how people market their movies

“This past week I was able to attend the American Film market. It was an experience to see all of these movies brought together in one place to be bought and sold. I found it very interesting to see how people market their movies to the buyers at the event; to see some of the things that the sellers thought that the buyers would be interested in. It was also interesting to see the human side of the American Film Market. Normally when thinking of buying and selling product the images of cold calculated business types comes to mind. The market was not like this. There were many times when I saw two old friends bump into each other and start catching up, with the conversation never broaching the topic of business. It was a refreshing feeling thinking that even at a place where movies are bought and sold to the world people are still being friendly.”

Choices define characters
Choices define characters

“Choices define characters and have the greatest impact on the progression of a character driven story. But, it’s not just the big choices, like setting off on a quest, or saving the princess, or sacrificing yourself. In fact, the smallest choices, the choices that aren’t so obvious can play just as important a role. These tiny choices are what separate strong characters from weak ones, and great actors from not so great actors. But, above all else, the small choices are the answer to the problems of too many characters and needing more character development.”

Work hard, and be scary.
Work hard, and be scary.

“The learning of film and it’s intricacies from others and reading about it, and how much of an impact it has on me as an individual, is what gives me incentive to keep pushing forward. I’m not trying to outdo others who are learning or in the same field as I am, I’m trying to outdo myself. As Robert Rodriguez once said, ‘Work hard, and be scary.’”

--

 

First job, yay!

“Jay, from Student Services, called me Friday night about a job. It’s a documentary about a Jazz player. Very interested, so I called the man who wants to make it and seems like a nice man and I’m very much going to do it. First job, yay!”

Lesson: Line Producing
Lesson: Line Producing

“Throughout the morning, Marcelo and I went over and reviewed the cinematography and editing of various music videos and we agreed on the criticism we took from said videos. In addition, we went over the occupation and responsibilities that come with line producing. We finished the day by talking about my progress with John Raffo.”

We have our first official meet up this Thursday

“I finally met up with my new mentor and he is really down to earth and I am happy to work alongside with him. We have our first official meet up this Thursday to record some B-roll for his film in the making and will review chapter 7 Friday!”

--

 

This is so amazing and going to be great for the future.

“A couple weeks ago I got asked to be interviewed for the RRF Newsletter, which was just shocking/awesome. I, of course, said yes! Jump forward a couple of weeks and the newsletter came out and I’m still shocked and awed. This is so amazing and going to be great for the future. I am very thankful.”

--

 

And I can’t wait for more to come!

“This is my first blog post so bear with me. I started a little over a week ago working with my mentor. I lived in upstate New York, and decided to pack my bags and head to the Big Apple. At eighteen years old no less. I began working with my mentor only two days later on an independent film called “The Lennon Report.” So far I’ve had the chance to meet people like Rafael and Gabe Francisco, of Francisco Productions. I’ve been speaking with people like grips, gaffer’s, and PA’s trying to help my mentor get together the many different people it takes to begin shooting a movie. So far I have enjoyed every minute of it. And I can’t wait for more to come!”

--

 

About a month ago, I finished the first draft of my screenplay.
About a month ago, I finished the first draft of my screenplay.

“About a month ago, I finished the first draft of my screenplay, and am now about half way finished with my second draft. There were a lot of lessons learned in the past month, including: make sure actions sequences are relevant to the characters’ growth, be willing to take a break from your work and come back to it later, read many screenplays, and assume the role as the student (learn something new and question your work) whenever you reach a landmark.”

--

 

It was yet another pleasant call with my mentor.
It was yet another pleasant call with my mentor.

“John Raffo and I went over my progress on my screenplay. As of now I have 23 completed draft pages. Not necessarily saying it’s my best work, but it’s great to build off of to improve upon. John and I agreed that he would read over my first act as soon as I complete it, it’s a way for me to start off on a strong as possible note with the first act, as opposed to working on 3 acts then rewriting it all. Not that I have a problem with it that is. He and I also went over some screenplays and movies for me to watch. It was yet another pleasant call with my mentor.”

--

 

The director made me a producer.
The director made me a producer.

“The director made me a producer and I handled all contracts and made sure all crew members signed in. I helped with the make-up artist, sound, and other jobs on set. Around 12am we began production until 8am. While crew took a break I broke down and cleaned up the set. Most of the crew left and the reaming finished the last three scenes.”

--

 

To me, that is the best way to spend my afternoon!
To me, that is the best way to spend my afternoon!

“I am a man of many questions and stories, as is my mentor, so we spend quite a while – I’d say at least 4 rounds of coffee – talking. Though like I said it is a high point of my week being able to talk to someone who not only has the same love and values for the industry, but can also extend advice about it. To me, that is the best way to spend my afternoon!”

--

 

I’m going to go full steam for it!

“I’m seeing all of these movies with new eyes between James working on his own movie in the editing room and seeing these other classics. I think I’m starting to realize what made movies timeless. Yes, it was ingenuity, but the art of eye-candy and continuity is ever shifting. I’m hoping I can catch up to things in Chapter 3. Now that I know what my project is, I’m going to go full steam for it!”

--

 

That’s why I’m here.

“This is getting easier for me to do and honestly I’m enjoying it. I was really worried about sounding really uneducated but now that I think of it that’s why I’m here. I’m educating myself and letting whomever reading this see the progression that I’m making.”
