“This week I participated in a 48 hour film festival based in Richmond, VA. For this assignment I had the role of production assistant. All total we had a cast and crew of about twenty members for a short film to be shot within one day with post on the next day. We as a cast and crew were able to complete our task for the production and as I write this blog post the film is now in post production. This experience for me is unbeatable. I was able to be on a set for a full day surrounded by artists who are all dedicated to their craft and love to work hard. I learned a lot about the realities of filmmaking and what it takes to complete a film. As I continue to learn, my roles on a set will increase and soon I know I’ll be a major factor on a set. I was happy and grateful for the opportunity to even be apart of the festival. I know the short we created will do well in the judging next week and I hope the audience at the premiere enjoys what we put together.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
