Review for California State Summer School Arts Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience at CSSSA’s film program last summer was truly life-changing one. During the 4 weeks of this immersive residential program, my classmates and I breathed, ate, and lived film. We would spend 15 or more hours per day, studying, discovering, and creating films. The program was extremely rigorous and all-encompassing. Living through this experience together bonded my classmates and me in the most profound way. We became partners-in-crime, comrades, ignited about learning film and engaging in the artistic process. Our experience was immensely enriched by a unique opportunity to observe, learn and work side by side with the visiting artists – Marnie Weber, James Laxton and Doug Harvey. They provided valuable dimension to our quest to master film craft, becoming our mentors and enthusiastic supporters. On behalf of my classmates and myself, I would like to express my deep gratitude to CSSSA for this inspirational and fulfilling program.
