“During the past month I have had a great experience with boot camp and found the program both insightful and invigorating. Professor Greg White provided valuable information and personal advice during each session and I really feel like I gained a lot from the program. Based on my experience with boot camp as well as the developments being made to the department it is clear to me that you and your team have built an incredible opportunity for aspiring filmmakers in Connecticut and as a native that makes me even more proud to have been apart of it.  Thank you again and in name of paying it forward I will be sure to suggest it to anyone I hear having this passion and looking for an outlet here in CT going forward.” — Shawn P., PA Training Program 2014 graduate
