Factory trip to LA: Day 2 - American Film Institute

Our second day in Los Angeles began with a trip to American Film Institute's Digital Content Lab. Nick DeMartino and Suzanne Stefanac very generously came in on their day off to give the Factory youth a tour of the AFI campus and to explain how the Digital Content Lab is working to envision how audiences will interact with movies in the future.

Here is the Factory filmmakers' experiences in their own words:

1st Blog updating BAVC progress

Hello! Class has been fine so far. My progress on my film is going fine, though the deadline is getting closer and I need to get some footage. This is hard because everyone needs the  camera equally and we all have to share. Other than that, it is going smooth. I have my shot list done with a storyboard, and working with my script. The next step is to finish my script and start filming. I hope all goes well!
