I am currently studying abroad at the Film and Media University of the Academy of the Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague, Czech Republic. As part of the CIEE Film Studies program, we work in groups of 2 or 3 to write, shoot and edit a feature short film on 16 mm film. It was one of the funnest experiences of my life. I want to do it over and over again. Thank you to everyone at CIEE and FAMU who made it possible. And, thank you to my wonderful friends who made the experience so enjoyable.
