In addition to the fiction writing and directing drills, the first year at IAD demands versatility in students. We also had to work on documentaries direction, though this exercise is more oriented on television report.
As I was badly injuried, I couldn’t shoot the documentary when the school wanted me to, but I managed to convince my teachers to let me do the drill during the summer, even though my injury wasn’t cured quite yet. I went with Jonathan who was on his way to England in order to go and find our common friend Julie and I filmed this short in one day.
