Gilbert Navarro — Nevada Film Connection
Hello and thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little bit. I decided to make the jump to learning about film production. I am a \"newbie\" and have always loved the entertainment world as far back as I can remember. Of course, I will let you know more about that in a bit but now it\'s time to tell you a little about myself.
I currently live in Las Vegas, NV and have been here for 15 years. I\'m currently working as a Graphic Designer/Layout artist at a local print house in town. I\'ve been in this industry since 2003 and am ready for this change. I\'m excited about this incredible opportunity and am looking forward to working with my mentors and learning all I can about film production.
The subject of study I decided to pursue is Directing, Screenwriting and Producing. The amount of kindness and welcome I have received from the staff at the Film Connection has been incredible and positive. From the admissions office to student services, I feel a great sense of compassion. That positive re-enforcement gives me the right attitude for this new endeavor and career choice.
Ever since I was a child, my mother always enjoyed watching films she grew up with and hardly liked anything that seemed unworthy of her taste. Her favorite movies were classics that included well-rounded actors such as Cary Grant, Betty Davis, Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, just to name a few. Naturally as I grew up these also became some of my favorite actors. As I continued to age, my personal appreciation of films and the actors in them began to grow. I found it fascinating that what was made yesterday and today could go on to be remembered as a masterpiece that could last forever.
With that being said, I\'m so happy that I am finally on this journey. Film has been and always will be a personal, provocative and enjoyable experience that I can share with just about anyone. As a great actor once said in a truly memorable film...\"So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.\" Thank you Gene Wilder, you helped make me want to strive to be a better person.
