My Start In The Film Industry

772 words - 4 pages

In High school, my musical theater teacher, Ms. Renee Bucciarelli said to me during a rehearsal, “Matthew, don’t worry about the details around you-focus on your performance.” But I enjoyed the process of overseeing a production until its completion. When I performed I did not feel the same passion as I felt during the process it took to produce the actual project. Ms. Bucciarelli would always tell me, “I can see you have a production company some day.” I understood that I enjoyed creating projects, but I did not understand the premise of being a producer.

When I arrived in New York City, I did not have a full time job, so I worked four part-time jobs and free-lanced on the side doing video production and web design. For over a year, Andrew Merelis, owner of Merelis Productions, Inc., mentored me. I learned how to run an effective small business that serviced clients.
