My name is Ed and this is about my journey into filmmaking.

Much like the rest of the world, I've enjoyed films for as long as I can remember. I've always toyed with the idea of creating films but never really followed that path. I've tried to write a few screen plays in my lifetime but I was never able to finish them. My daughter started watching the Harry Potter films when she was six and we stumbled upon some of the making of / behind the scenes of those films and she was hooked. We started to try to make some quick films together and that is when I realized, I needed some help. Sure I could research it on my own, but I figured there was some online program that I could learn some basics.

I found a 15-week filmmaking course from the New York Film Academy (NYFA) and jumped at the chance. This site / blog represents my journey into that program and hopefully my path to independent film making.
