3rd Year Film BFA Production

Hey everyone, my name’s Peter and I’m a third year film production student.  I was born and raised in the gallows of the Toronto suburbia. I chose to come to York University for their excellent film program, but also because they have some of the best arts programs in Canada.  My experience at York has been nothing but a joyous, rich, experience.  I have met some of my closest friends while studying here, and I’ve been able to learn as well as grow with my creative work.  I love the film program because it has given me valuable experience for what working on a professional film is actually like, and I’ve been able to practice my craft without having to worry about disappointing a client, or wasting an investors money.  After York I plan on working in the commercial film industry, hopefully directing commercials, music videos and feature films, but really really good ones.

At York, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a great deal of student films, which has helped me improve my on set skills.  I’ve also have had opportunities to make long lasting connections with professors and students who also make work throughout the year.  I became a SAM to help show new incoming students what University can offer them, and I hope I do just that.
