One filmmakers journey… how we met at the Guerilla Masterclass and went on an extraordinary journey…

By Iria Pizania

I graduated from a MA in Filmmaking in January 2012.

During the graduation day I was excited to receive my degree but having already been searching for the right opportunity for a few months I knew that my degree on its own would not make much difference.

When I graduated from my MA in filmmaking, I know if my career was going to take off, I needed to take action and get out there, working and meeting likeminded creative people as much as possible.

That is why I decided to attend the Guerilla Masterclass last year. And I was right to do so. I met many people, many go-getters, during those three days and I listened to many ideas and plans. I worked on many films as a result, and I am now shooting my first feature film with producers, writer and director I met at the Guerilla Masterclass.

It’s called ‘The Journey’ – Lance, the writer and director, stood up on the the last day of the masterclass and announced that he would make this film this year – and we have just wrapped shooting in Greexe just last week.

Almost a year down the road, having shot a feature film in Greece, working with so many other Guerilla Film graduates, I can say that the Masterclass gave me more than I could ever ask for – information, a kick in the behind to take action and new friends and filmmaking colleagues.
