“ON YOUR RADAR” IS A WEEKLY GRAD FILM NEWS SEGMENT THAT FEATURES A STUDENT PICKED AT RANDOM.
BIANCA IS CURRENTLY A 3RD YEAR STUDENT AT GRAD FILM. WE ASKED HER A FEW QUESTIONS, AND HERE’S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY:
1. Where do you consider home and what is it like there?
I’ve had many homes in my life and moved often so the concept of home for me is hard to pin down! At the moment I’d say my home is New York. After all, it’s the place where I was born and the first real place I considered as my home (even for years after my family and I moved away). Now, New York is even more so a home since I have two dogs! Wherever they are, that’ll be my home.
2. What is currently inspiring you as a filmmaker?
The world is so rich with characters and places that inspire me (although now with the pandemic, I sadly only get to travel on Instagram…). I’d have to say that at the moment, the most inspiring thing for me are mountains. I can’t get the image of a mountain at sunset out of my head. It’s pretentious, I know, but one day, when we can all go back and film again, I hope to camp out near a summit somewhere with my cast and crew and shoot something.
3. What has been your most rewarding experience at NYU Tisch Grad Film so far?
There are two moments that are truly memorable.
The first was during our MOS editing month. It was a marathon filled with many sleepless nights. That’s when I really bonded with my classmates- eating, sleeping and working all in the same room. In the dead of night, when our eyes were too fried from staring at the computer screen, we’d go to a nearby bar and play ping pong. After that, we’d go back and keep editing.
The second, is the time I saw my first movie projected on a big screen in front of an audience. It’s such a strange, scary and amazing feeling. Being in a room filled with your colleagues, your friends and family, all watching each other’s work together, it’s very special.
