Hi everybody, I'm Rebecca!

I've always enjoyed writing poems and emotional stories, and had some interest in movie and theater acting. That's how I found Spark Media Project! I enrolled in a movie making class they were teaching at my school, PDS (Poughkeepsie Day School).

I learned a lot about acting and film making, and it was super fun! I began to enroll in the Reel Expressions Film Making Intensives, where I got to work in a more professional environment.

I look forward to working here more in the future and improving my film-making skills!
