Haha, makes sense.
Thanks b, her life goal of course is to make at least one feature film. She is being realistic though, she knows she has to work her way up through the ranks to get there. She is an imaginative storyteller and she is skilled at telling those stories, at least on paper (books/scripts). Hopefully Tisch will help her tell those stories on the screen.
Thanks Mike, good to know that NYU filmmakers are 'solid'....
Andrew, thanks, some very good information.
Daniel, thanks, of course everyone wants to be 'writer/director'. And, of course, movies are not just made with those guys. In her case, the writing 'force' is strong with her. Of course, she wants to be a director. Like you said, that will be something that she finds out about herself when she is in it. She has done quite a bit of directing at the high school level and in a few internships that she has attended but none of them are at a significant scale. Although she is going to NYU in NYC we do not live in the city so if she wants to do summer gigs in NYC she would have to make accommodations.
Mark, thanks for the input. We are fortunate enough to be able to (barely) afford Tisch without loans. I am hoping that without the loan debt she will be more free to pursue film.
