“I have been on numerous student film sets over the course of the year, but Black Dispatch was my first professional set. My job on this set was BTS (Behind the Scenes) constantly taking footage on set and getting interviews with cast and crew. As a film student stepping onto set with a crew who have been doing this for years, I was extremely nervous and honestly scared. Looking back now there was nothing to be afraid of. The cast and crew were very welcoming, encouraging, and I learned so much from them. I made numerous new connections, who I proudly call friends now. I hope I get the privilege of working with these wonderful people again. As for now, this is the beginning of my filmmaking career, and I could not be any happier.”
