What was the most valuable thing about your experience at Screen and Film School?
“Managing stress. Filmmaking involves a lot of problem solving, and people tend to panic every time something goes wrong – and despite tons of planning and preparation, something most likely will.
Instead of fighting it or stressing yourself out, it’s best to just roll with the punches. Take a few minutes and come back with a clear head to try and find an alternative solution and sometimes those alternatives can be even better than what you had initially planned.”
What advice would you offer a recent Screen and Film School graduate?
“Make friends and have fun with your projects. Filmmaking is a team sport and it’s supposed to be fun. Why else would you be doing it? So, try not to take everything too seriously and have a good time on set because you don’t want to burn out before you’ve begun.”
