A Chronicle of the 507 Semester at USC Film School
USC School of Cinema-Television Production
Los Angeles
, California

The 507 semester is the first of a 3-year program at the world's finest Film school.
During the semester each student makes 5 digital video short movies by themselves.

They write, produce, direct, shoot, edit & do sound.
In other words, they do everything (but sleep).

For Wendy, this marks the beginning of a dream-come-true.
Enjoy the journey.
