My name is Max, and I live in Ringwood, New Jersey.My father works as an electrician at the Metropolitan Oprah House in New York, and my mom works at the Upper Montclair Country Club.
Obstacles To My Dream
One day, I would like to make movies, TV shows, short films, or even documentaries. What I want to do specifically, is either direct, produce, or even write for a movie.
How Will I Achieve This Dream?
I have always loved film, and it amazes me what a team of people can do when they work together. What got me on board with the idea, was when I watched Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time. Once the movie was finished, there was a behind the scenes bonus of how they made the movie. I was impressed by what they were able to do, I decided then and there that's what I want to do.
Some obstacles that might get in my way are not having any experience with making any films or projects. I am also blocked off by the fact I don't fully understand how to pitch ideas to studios.
To prepare myself, I am taking the Video classes here at Lakeland, and plan on going to colleges who teach film, like Seton Hall University or Montclair State University. I also plan on making short films with friends over my summer breaks and entering them in film festivals.
