“In this week’s session we continued to explore editing with two separate projects that we filmed several weeks ago. I was able to continue to input some ideas that I have and contribute more to both projects. I am continuing to learn new techniques and different methods of editing. I have come to realize that editing in itself is not particularly difficult only that learning how to edit and becoming a professional demands the time input above all else. The longer a person edits the more skilled they will become and I am excited to continue on this journey. The lesson this week covered storyboards and the director’s workbook. We are now exploring the position of a director, a position that Jack specializes in. Our sessions are becoming more interesting as we go along and I am still learning substantial amounts about film production just in more detail. We are also working with other artists in the area that my mentor knows. Through these new people I am meeting, I am getting more contacts and learning from others in the business as well.
I am really enjoying the process, the hard work, and the time spent trying to figure things out.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
