Cinema Workshops

"Hi Randi,
I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that your efforts in teaching script supervising is certainly paying off. I am doing well. I've been working steadily and am becoming very comfortable with the job. One short I worked on I nonchalantly let them know that the way they were setting up a shot the eye-line would be wrong, because, you know, that's my job, and the whole crew acted like I saved the day. The director and the DP were so appreciative of my attentiveness. It felt really good and I have you to thank!! I just got hired on my first feature and am very excited. It starts in May and goes for five weeks. So, thanks again."
