"I really enjoyed the program. I had some great instructors and the program really opened my eyes to all the aspects of filmmaking, some of which I had never really thought about before hand. I loved the freedom when getting to shoot our first and final thesis film’s and getting a grasp on the different avenues available in the industry. Overall it was a really positive experience and it gave me the knowledge I needed to help me find the path I wanted to pursue as a Director."
