On July 5th 2011, I stepped out of the comfort zone of the life I knew and at 37 tears old I entered into film school. I applied and was accepted into the Nashville Film Institute. Though it was a very big change I found out that the skills that I developed over the course of my career did pay off. Reading as many books that I could get in my hands I learned that everything is not taught in film school, it simply can’t.
After only 3 weeks of school I was working the set of NBC’s The Voice and a full production film. The work was very hot, hard, and long but it was well worth every minute. I met professionals in the field that gave me advise that was very valuable to me and where I will go after graduation.
Film school is not easy and the hip thing to do. It is hard work and long hours away from your family. I must say that it is well worth it in the long run. Being a filmmaker does require a level of maturity outward and inward. I know that when I graduate in April, 2012 I will look back and smile.
