How were you able to pursue a burning interest at George School?
Film has been a passion of mine for many years, and one of the main reasons that I chose to attend George School was so that I could pursue it. I was able to experiment and get experience from making three major films each year.
I started in the film program in my freshmen year. As an underclassman, I could learn from the more experienced students in my class. As an upperclassman, I was able to share my knowledge with the underclassmen. Also I learned a lot from my teacher, Scott Seraydarian ’90, especially since he is an industry professional.
I was able to pursue film outside the classroom as well. In my freshman year, I joined the Short Film Club, and sophomore year on I was its co-leader. I also served as the student videographer for the George School website.
What was your favorite class at George School?
IB Writer’s Focus was one of my favorite classes for two reasons: It allowed me to express my creativity through open-ended creative writing assignments, and Terry Culleton really loves what he teaches. His excitement about writing is contagious.
