Film Connection Success Stories

I will let you guys know when I win my first Oscar!

“Today is the last day of my internship. I have been at Make It Happen for 7 months now and I can see a huge difference from where I was to where I am now. RRFC gave me a certificate so I am officially a graduate of their program. Now, I just have to decide what to do with this new skill that I have. My current job films enough footage at their events that I will have plenty of material to keep me busy, however I am not sure that anything I would edit for them would be resume worthy. For now, it will at least make sure that I don’t go long periods of time without editing something and that will help maintain my new skill set. I helped edit a few different pieces over the last two weeks and I still go into each project feeling like I am in over my head, but once I start the process, each step has started to come naturally. I am exponentially faster than I was when I started my internship which was the goal, so I feel like I’ve gotten to a place where it is now my responsibility to keep up my skill and continue learning about the new technology and programs that are available to editors. I also got my first paid “editing” job from film connection. I am transcribing about 7 hours’ worth of interviews and it is taking forever. I can type pretty quickly and it still is just a long slow process. So, that’s it… I will let you guys know when I win my first Oscar!”
