Graduation

SAM 0144 300x225 Graduation
Graduation Day 4/5/13

Well finely it has happened!  Graduation has come and gone.  This was such a wonderful journey that I hated for it to end but at the same time I’m so glad it has.  I have such a respect for the staff members and all of the students who actually finished there journey to graduate.   I received many compliments and a great deal of encouragement from so many people and staff members at the school, that made this time so well worth my efforts.  I have endeavored many projects outside of the school and met so many new people that I grew up idolizing through my 20′s and 30′s that it just blows my mind.  Because of the structure of the school it allows you as a student to really look past what is just in front of you and look at the big picture.

The school staff was so helpful in shaping my train of thought to which direction I would like to pursue.  One thing I can say about the staff members of the school is that most are coming from real live experience in the industry and know what it takes to make it in the field.  They have been working for some very famous people and worked on many films that even brought Academy Awards.  So when the staff teach us, it is from experience as well as education.  I would like to give special thanks to a few choice staff members because they gave me a lot of help by taking time out to listening to me and helping me with any problem I encountered at the school.  First I would like to thank Joe Byron who helped me get some students to help with some outside projects that allowed me to get some experience in the field and be able to put together a team of individuals who I can depend on for future projects.  Joe also made it possible for me to have my new friends Wayne Vaughn and family, who was one of the producers and song writers for Earth Wind & fire, come to the school and give a little seminar and perform a few songs for the students.   I want to also extend special thanks to Leslie BatesPedro From Film Sound, Brian Wallace, Candace Koller, Scott Gutierrez and Steve Miller.  These individuals all help me in many ways that made the school so much more fun and a blessing to be a student.  Because of their particular classes they teach, I have had a lot of great contacts and information that I know will be the future of my career.

So on that note, watch out because I’m ready for my new career and you will hear my name in the next 5 years!!

Thank you LA Film School and all of my fellow students who have helped me and been there through out the school term.  Love you all and wish all the best in the future.

Graduation is Here

Graduation is Here!! Friday is the big walk.  After 18 months of schooling and just a wonderful time learning a new trade, it is time for me to graduate.  I must say that this has been one of my best choices of things to do because the journey has been nothing but a blessing in so many ways.  I have gained a bunch of new friends both fellow students and faculty members as well as being introduced to some very nice networking connections.   One thing I will say about LA Film School is that it is still growing and has a lot of changes that happen everyday but the quality of what they have put together has been amazing.

In the course of the school term I have learned how to use Pro Tools, Logic, The D Command, Neve, SSL 9000, 5.1 Surround, movie editing, sound creation, how to build and trouble shoot connection, patch-bay, record and film, Foley and so many other things you would never think of just watching a movie.   I do not remember a single day that I did not want to go to school because if you missed a day then you might have missed something really needed to advance in what every you were there for.   Through many different trials and test I feel this is just what the doctor ordered for me.  I am so looking forward to working in the field and also working with some of my fellow students.  I have built a good relationship with a few of the other students and we have done a few projects on the side that came out well.  Our customers were happy and we look to do other projects along the way.

So in closing I want to say thank you to all of the staff members in the school that I have come in contact with because I got such a great feeling of acceptance from each and everyone of them and not a single instructor was UN-willing to help with any problems that came up.   I felt so at home and I would like to some day be apart of the staff.   I know my journey is just beginning but the options are all there by just applying the experience from all of the help I received from the school and staff members.  I want to give a special thanks to Joe Byron who has been there for me through a lot of different issues. He has allowed me to pursue my dream in many ways by getting me the help I needed to get things done and help others with some of the special people I got to meet during the school sessions.  I’m looking forward to my new adventures.
