My name is Leon McCarron. I studied film here in England for 3 years, and decided documentary was my passion, specifically the production, I am a cameraman and one-day director. I had enrolled in the New York Film Academy for their Winter filmmaking workshop (because I wanted to learn how to shoot on film as opposed to digital which I know) but I heard so many bad reports Im now having second thoughts.
I'm moving to New York on the 20th Nov, and staying until the 15th Feb – I would love to take a short course in documentary filmmaking instead of the NYFA, or even find an internship. Anyone got any ideas or advice? Id really appreciate it, because Im kinda stuck now!
Also Im planning a documentary which I will shoot as I cycle from New York to Sydney following my study, you can check it out at www.leonmccarron.com
Thanks a lot everyone, sorry for the super long intro!
