Coming from a small city in Georgia with a population of 27,000, the lure of the big city and Hollywood glitz was mesmerizing. Having received a BA degree from the University of Georgia in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from Clark Atlanta University, the film industry was far from my mind. While visiting Los Angeles, I took the opportunity of working alongside a friend that runs and independent film production company. I was completely taken off guard and instantly desired it. With a small production company I’ve had an opportunity to work different positions, filming, assistant editor, production assistant, and producer. With the day to day hands on experience, I have learned quickly the ropes. Working as a background extra on sets has allowed me to experience first hand what is required to pull it all together. See the real action behind the scenes which is so opposite of what the final product is that the audience views.
