Sure, there’s one semester left. But the frightening and exciting real world is very close. Film school provides such a safety net. Your films will always get made, you’re really close to everyone you work with, and it’s a lot of fun.
I’m in San Francisco right now, working on the Life Hacking Doc, after having just left Los Angeles. It’s weird to visit LA and know I’ll probably be back there soon, but this time to live and work.
