Film

I’m taking a class this semester called Script to Screen with Rona Mark. Through a series of exercises, we’ve been learning the basics of handling a camera, writing a script and making a complete film. Our exercises are short two-minute pieces centered around the late Columbia film professor Stefan Sharff’s book on filmmaking.

In the past few months I’ve discovered just how hard it is to translate something from a perfect idea into a medium that is at once, limiting and freeing. Its like learning to speak all over again.

Three (not-so-very-good) shorts:
