Lesson #2 - History of Film

After completing Lesson #2 and reading the wealth of information about the history of film, I was really surprised about how film was created and the extensive advances it has had over decades.  Technology has advanced the film industry in so many ways and it was interesting to learn about the various contributors to film also. One thing I was able to assess about my own personal interests were learning about the various genres and the select genres that appeal to me the most. I have always enjoyed dramas and comedies. 

Learnings from Initial Meeting with Mentor

During my initial meeting with my mentor, I had the pleasure of sitting in on a producton meeting, as the crew is planning to shoot a film next week. My mentor, Rocco, has placed me on the team and I will be serving as a Production Assistant.  The film will be shooting for 5 days and I will be able to participate at least 4 out of the 5 days.  I spent most of my time listening and observing the process of creating the plan to shoot the film.  During my observation, I was able to see how much time and work is really put into the planning stages. I am really excited to work with the team next week and to continue to learn and absorb as much as I can.
