I'm Haley Kittel, a first year Cinema and Photography student; my concentration is in Cinema Production. My ultimate plans for after college involve working as a director with a large production company, but I look forward to interning with smaller independent companies in my learning process. I have known from a very young age that I wished to direct films and have, therefore, involved myself in classes, festivals, and conventions in the film industry. I look for any chance to better my skills and learn about the film world. I most admire the work of directors who add a sense of whimsy to otherwise dark matters, such as Baz Luhrman with his films Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet and Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. I would love to work on a big budget musical film as well, for the genre is one of the first to interest me in film. I'm looking forward to furthering my education at Ithaca College and getting involved in projects with student and faculty.
