My name is Michael Murray. I have a Video Production Diploma and a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Film-making thru Durham College. In my downtime, I do my best to excel in my craft and learn new things.
Video Production taught me all the basics and some advanced video and photo techniques within the two-year program. I made connections with multiple other students and we collaborated on multiple projects to help each other succeed. It was competitive. All of us wanted to stand out and make a name for ourselves. As for myself, I was a documentary shooter and video editor, I was inclined into making documentaries about things that I feel are important.
Advanced Film making was a big leap going from making documentaries to making short films. During this course, I learned how to be a valuable team member that can help out in almost any department. I re-learned some after-effects on my own to prepare for my short film. Contacted my friends and got them to help out on my crew. I assisted a few of the other students in their short films in the capacity of assistant director, cameraman, director of photography, production manager, equipment manager, lighting and audio technician.
