I first started making films when I was about 7 (I’m 19 now). I made a lot of my movies with my brothers and all my neighborhood friends. We spent our whole summers filming and editing videos in my basement. I started out on iMovie and since then I’ve switched to Final Cut Pro.
After making my first stop motion video I realized that photography was almost the same thing as film. I took a photography class freshman year and loved it. Now I love taking photos and filming. It’s become such a part of my life that everywhere I go I think about how I could turn something into a really cool photo or film.
Right now I am a sophomore at the University of Southern California (USC) majoring in film production. My goal is to become a Director/Cinematographer.
