My first week of my digital editing class is officially done (as of 16.7.16 at 3:45pm)! When they said it was an intensive workshop, they weren’t kidding! Most days I have class from 9:15am to 7pm, learning about 3 lessons a day. What a time to be alive! The majority of the focus is learning Avid Media Composer, which is the dominant editing software in the film and tv industry. Everyone in my class is really nice and there are a lot of international students. There are people from Switzerland, India, China, and Nigeria! And it’s really cool because my class is at Burbank Studios, which used to be NBC Studios! So shows like Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved By the Bell, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and with Johnny Carson used to air here. Everyday when I go to lunch, I pass Studio 1 (that’s where The Tonight Show aired). Days of Our Lives still shoot there, as well. The main building for the New York Film Academy is across the street from Warner Bros. Studios and various record labels (Warner Music Group, Atlantic Records, just to name a few). It’s great!
My place is a cute little tree house! And it’s in a quiet neighborhood, which is a plus! Downside, there are never any Pokemon on the street that I live on.
