Hi, I'm Amy Malak. I am a Media and Cinema studies major at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am extremely interested in becoming a cinematographer and I also love to paint and make things with my hands.
My name is Brittny Barcenas and I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Film degree from The Los Angeles Film School in Hollywood. My focuses are screen writing and production/set design and I hope to one day share my voice and vision with others through those platforms. I am from a small town in Southern California and moved out to Los Angeles to pursue my career after previously living in Arizona. For as long as I can remember, I have been enamored with the idea of telling a story. Being able to reach someone through words or visuals is so immensely powerful and that is why I love film so much. I hope to one day be able to make people feel something through my works, just like many films have done to me.
