HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

Please enjoy this fun scene I shot with yet another great group of cinematography students at the New York Film Academy.

This is truly an anniversary as it marks the 20th practicum I’ve written and directed over the past years with Cine students at the New York Film Academy. Respect for all the hard work of the students and thank you to the NYFA Cinematography department for this unique approach to practical learning and preparing our students for the real world.
