NYFA was the first exposure I got to any kind of formal education in filmmaking. It was my “ABC’s” – the first steps I took to make movies professionally. There’s no doubt that what I learned at NYFA helped.

NYFA was the toughest year of my life. It was very hands-on and I am thankful as that kind of [fast] pace prepared me to enter the field.
