I had a great experience with Real Ideas. I met a lot of real great people. The mentors and founders were fun to work with and I still keep in touch with them. I found the experience to be very helpful for me professionaly and socially. Learned a lot to help improve my skills. The locaton and being in the middle of such a great festival was also an unforgetable experience. I've made great friends and recieved great opportunities and would do it all again if given the chance.

Real Ideas Studio offers an amazing hands on approach to filmmaking. They don't just talk about films, they give students the resources to go out and make them. I have been blessed to have found RIS in 2006 by enrolling as a student in their summer program in Cannes. There I met like minded people whom I collaborated with and will continue to work with throughout my professional career. Since I have been back to Cannes with RIS twice. Again, they afforded me the resources needed to make my visions a reality. It has opened my mind to the world of possibilities and allowed me to share my thoughts with the world. I have recently signed on to volunteer with Real Ideas because I want to continue to be a part of such a strong program.
