Marcus Prows — Florida Film Connection
Hi I'm Marcus Prows. I grew up in Jacksonville FL for most of my life. After high school, I worked at a grocery store for 2 years until age 20, when I started a short stint in the Navy. After that all fell apart, at age 22 I came back home and started working for the same grocery store chain, all while having aspirations to go to film school. I've had these dreams ever since before I can remember. I thinking the begining of highschool I started to really get into the dvd extra contents, and seeing just how fun it is to be on a movie set. I would listen to all the audio commentary from the directors and just be in awe at the complicated, creative process that goes into making movies.
Well after 6 long, menotonous years working in the grocery business, I thought it was finally time for me to stop thinking about, and do something. I quit the soul sucking grocery job and got a new job as a merchandiser for a beer distributor. It's a much more fun job and I used the saving from my old job to finally go to school. With this film school, I'm hoping to "make it big" in the film business. However, I'm a realist and I know that's a long shot, so I'd be perfectly content being a camera man for the discovery channel or travel channel. Traveling the world working for the film business would be the ultimate dream, and hopefully with this school, I'll get there soon enough.
