My name is Greg Martin Lynn. I was born and raised in Santa Cruz County California. I have always been interested in the arts, especially filmmaking. In junior high I began making skateboard movies in the back yard, using my parent’s video camera. The hobby of filmmaking is now a passion.
In four years at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida, I majored in communications with an emphasis in film studies. I graduated in May of 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in this major. While working for my degree I have written and produced four short films: two documentaries, “Alcohol” and “Dyslexia”, a music video titled “Lost” and a brief love story from my screenplay titled “Words of Tranquility”.
At FilmSchoolSF I have worked on my own and also with a group in collaboration on other student’s work. We edit with the programs Avid and Final cut Pro. It has been a terrific experience. When I heard about FilmSchoolSF I was thrilled. I attended an open house in January and knew right away that the school was where I needed to go next to further my career in film. The digital training program is what I had been looking forward to for years.
It is exciting to think about using the latest technology to continue to build my portfolio, to get credits on movies and to establish contacts within the industry. I just finished my first film at FilmSchoolSF, called “The Mirror.” It was an exciting experience and I’m now working on my new documentary called “Beyond forever.” It’s great having the freedom to make the films that I want to make and the freedom to show the ideas I want to get across. Well, love to see you on the set, talk with you soon. Cut.
