I am a student at UCF, intending to graduate with a BFA in Film, focused on screenwriting. I am currently involved with several groups on campus for movie-making and writing, including the Screenwriting Club and Film Club. My main focus is my studies, but in any spare time I have, I’m either watching movies or writing.
I have been a part of the Limbitless Solutions Scholars Program since January 2019, working with the Public Relations team as a videographer and editor. Since joining, I have created seven videos for our team, including the pilot video for the Limbitless EDU project. As a filmmaker, one of my main interests is post-production, especially sound design, and my experience working with Limbitless Solutions has helped me tremendously with my own films. I am studying at UCF and expect to graduate in 2022.
Since arriving at UCF, I have created three short films. When I bought my first camera, I decided to shoot my first project, The Songwriter, to get my feet wet making films and practice using that new camera. My second project, A Pleasant Walk on a Nice Day, was an idea I had wanted to make for a while, and was my first time directing a set. My third project, try to WRITE today!!!, was an opportunity to work on and learn about sound design and foley work. With each project I create, I try to have one main skill I work on and learn through it.
I’ve been interested in writing for some time now. I remember trying to write a short novel in middle school, and coming back to revise it during sophomore year of high school. I remember a project in my high school psychology class that had us make a ten-minute film, and I remember the director and me being more invested in that project than anyone else. I remember late nights on Google Drive working on my first short film with a close friend, tweaking every other line to get it just right. I have been writing for a while, and I hope to keep writing for a long time.
