I had this nice feeling of "wow, how far we've come", especially because not even two weeks before the end, the film looked VERY different haha, so it was almost surprising, but a nice surprise ! And proud of everyone that we made it here !
Keep an open mind and enjoy the experience to learn and grow with great talents.
I was there 4 years and it almost felt too long or too short on some aspects. I wished there was a bigger place for experimentation and finding your own style/narrative. Keep an open mind and learn from others, but also learn to trust yourself as an artist, it can be hard to not feel the pressure surrounded by so much talent ! This is a school meant for teamwork, communication and task managment are important skills to learn for your future, so don't overlook it !
I had the dream of going to Gobelins long way before, and I found the CAAF to be the perfect Opportunity to make that dream come true. I was harder than I tought, but I am very gratefull of having this experience. For me a big bonnus was to learn with so many talented people from all around the world! especially with my amasing team! haha
