A very special young lady in my life was accepted to this prestigious summer program offered by the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. I have watched her creating films for years, but the past 4 weeks she has been immersed in living the life of a non-stop filmmaker. Traveling the city to different locations. Acting as director, DP, editors - these students do it all. Today they each had a short film they had written and directed, but also worked as teams on music videos and would help out on classmates projects serving in numerous roles.

Natalie is heading into her senior year of high school and I can only believe this has changed who she will be this final year of her school career. I'm sure her mind (as well as the other students there today) will all be thinking about what happens after high school, what film school they'll get into, and dreaming of that moment they win their oscar.
I know I can't wait until that day I see her accepting her first award as I'm sure there will be many in her future.
Congrats to all of the young filmmakers today! It was awesome to experience this with you.
