What/Which courses do you teach at the Met Film School?

 

 

 

What is one thing about your field of expertise or filmmaking in general that excites you? 

Being able to create a fictional world onscreen for the audience to inhabit and experience – and perhaps influence the outlook of that audience.

 

 

Do you have any links to your past/current projects (youtube link, url)?

I’m currently in post-production on my third feature entitled The Manual – Join us on facebook

 

 

 

How would you describe your time teaching at the School?  What do you think is the most challenging element of the course you teach?  

Working with actors is certainly the part of the course that takes the students out of their comfort zone. Learning to operate equipment is a predictable process – learning how to communicate concisely and clearly with other creatives is not.
 

 

What are the key attributes you look for in a student?

Drive. Passion. Personality. An honest creative voice.

 

 

 

Any useful tips for aspiring filmmaker?

You are always networking.
