Here are some film industry friends of MFJF passing on their experience and knowledge. All have different backgrounds and stories to tell, highly recommended:
Karl von Haas | New York
Christopher Baffa ASC | Los Angles
"Communication, patience, strength to know when it's time to move on, the ability to plan and think on your feet when the plan doesn't work, the ability to be spontaneous is one of the most exciting things about filmmaking."
Sophie Galibert | Los Angles
"Take an iPhone and start telling stories. Connect with people and build your tribe, its very precious to work with people you respect who ant to collaborate with you. Keep watching movies, plays, dance, fulfil yourself with the world".
Mark Sadlek | Los Angles
"Editors are the funnel for the last rewrite of the script. We bring int the RAW footage, we analyse the script and look for the subtext of the underlying stories and we build an episode."
Jennifer Schofield | Los Angles
"Do your best and don't give up, even if you make mistakes, they are part of the learning process and they get you where you're going. Recognise its not the end of the world, you're learning and it can be a thankless industry at the beginning."
Ese Shaw | Los Angles
"Network, network, network, network! They say its who you know and that could not be more true. The more people you get to know the more relationships you get to form the better. So when you end a job you can reach out to your network."
Duncan White | Los Angles
"If you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to start in film, work as hard as you can and make the best impression that you can to get your next job - because a lot if it is all about getting the next job"
Petra Haffter | Los Angles/Germany
"I had a totally different entrance into the film industry. I was working in radio and I had learnt to tell stories, research and hold interviews. When I was successful with a series on radio it was a small step to move into documentaries."
