the Cinema Department has meant the world to me

IMG_3264My name is Alexei Teitler, and the Cinema Department has meant the world to me. It’s how I made friends during the first week of school, and they’re still with me today. Cinema classes have made me explore my own styles and tastes; forcing me to think outside the box and get creative. It also made me re-assess what I want to do with my degree, and how I can get into the business. One of my proudest achievements was in Prof. Lang’s Horror Cinema class, where I wrote one of my best essays on John Carpenter’s Halloween. However, the Cinema Department did make the question “What’s your favorite movie?” a lot harder to answer. That’s like opening Pandora’s Box.
