This here’s my first blog for the Student Digi Film Festival, and I figured the best way to start is to introduce myself!
My name’s Juan, and I’m an aspiring… Uh… person? Haven’t quite decided what exactly I want to do with my life beyond the fact that it’s going to be something that revolves around this whole film/television thing. I love working on any kind of set- but I also love editing, so I try to do as much as I can of both. Right now I’m studying at Oxnard College and that’s basically how I got involved with the SDFF!
At first I’d just hang around the TV studio every day; just to see what kinda help people needed be it shooting, cleaning or whatever. Then I started passing out fliers for the festival, attending all the meetings of the planning committee and before I knew it I was made the Coordinator for Student Filmmaker’s Day… Twice.
This time around I’ll be taking a break from heading up the filmmaker’s day, but rest assured I’ll still be helping out behind the scenes(and on this blog of course). You can count on me or one of the other bloggers to let you know about anything and everything going on with the SDFF, give you tips on how to be a filmmaker with no budget, or sometimes even just to share an interesting story or video with you!
Till next time!
