Paul Thind — California Film Connection
Being a kid growing up in a bad neighborhood of Bakersfield, CA the television became my escape. My favorites were anime tv shows and films. When I graduated high school, I decided I wanted to tell stories also so I moved to Los Angeles to become an actor.
I have been in the working film industry for two years now. When I first moved to Los Angeles it was to attend the New York Film Academy. After graduating the One year program in 2010 I started to go out on auditions. One thing led to another and I started finding myself working more behind the camera as a production assistant rather than in front as an actor.
While I was production assisting on a music video, I was offered an internship at Robot Films. A production company that focused on music videos. I did this job until I realized that I wanted more than to be just a production assistant. I wanted to create my own films.
I started reading business, production, screenwriting, and other film history books more frequently. I have always had a passion for films and now I was learning what goes into making them. It's a tough road, but I'm in it for the long haul.
