BACK IN TIME
We’ll start with 2001 when I moved to United states . I graduated with my MFA from Georgia State University . Prior to that I had hundreds of great experiences working in Television, Commercials and Feature Films in India. While traveling the world and working on Film sets became a passion , I soon realized that in the real world having a family with the love of your life and being on film sets does not necessarily work well .I had change few things and still can be passionate about films.
After graduation, I worked for various jobs as editor and assisting around short film productions in Atlanta . Along came 2 kids and it became harder to get back on the set. I did freelance work. I edited documentaries and started working as an Adjunct faculty member in a local college.
While I was doing what I enjoyed – making videos and Teaching – I didn’t feel like I was actually thriving. I realized the shortcomings of the education system and the huge loans students have to undertake to get an Arts Degree and I was no longer happy with my job. I also realized that most of the students just land up in Arts degree without really realizing if they want to pursue it or not .
Something had to change.
If I was going to be successful and change something in the education world where students still can follow their passion but not undertake loans for thousands of dollars, I would have to do it things differently. I started to follow inspirational bloggers Pat Flynn. These guys helped get me start my online venture where I can discuss and talk about how to balance passion and college education .
My aha moment was…when I discovered Udemy, a place where anyone could teach a course. I created my first online course and started on my online journey .
I created MYFILMCAMP on YouTube as a place to share and connect with the world tutorials and strategies to create stories and films. The camps and After school programes are an excellent way to work with me in person. I have two of my own kids, so I thoroughly enjoy having hands on experience . Listening , collaborating young creative minds and see them build,create and tell a story every time amazes me. During our recent Europe trip, I gave a camera to both of my kids and my 6 year old has this shaky video of a long 9 minute ferry ride on lake Luzerene , so yes I wanted him to stop the camera every few minutes but he did not. The video is one of my favorite because we all forgot about the camera after 2-3 minutes into filming and our whole family interaction is very documentary like where the camera is the only author unedited.
Teaching Online Courses allows me to share my knowledge with people, but also to have the freedom to work on projects I love and earn enough money to thrive. Please feel to Contact me if you need any information on my Camps, Online Classes or After School Programme.
