Still don’t believe us? Meet Billy! He answered a few questions for our Instagram team to show you how you can #MakeYourMark in our department.
Billy got to participate in an internship on a film set this past summer. It was for a movie called “Days of Power” and it was shot in his hometown. He got to meet Eric Roberts which was pretty insane! Billy was a production assistant and helped out with a little bit of everything. However, he primarily helped designed sets. He has been interested in film his whole life. He loved making home videos as a young kid, and spent his time making goofy videos with his friends. Through those early experiences he developed a real passion for working with video. This internship really gave him a look into the industry.
He was really happy with how it turned out and felt that it is definitely his strongest piece to date. It was an idea that he really developed in his head and it turned out to be this really weird and fun finished product. It was truly an experimental film.
Billy said he will try to find a job working for a production studio. He hopes to be able to work with video, whether shooting or editing. Those are his two favorite areas of the film industry. He may also do freelance stuff on the side for extra experience and income.
