Students get to work with these different tools and put their skills to the test through live sports activities.
“You have to enjoy watching the game and make sure you don’t like all the action that’s going on on the ice rink so everyone at home can watch,” Cotton explained.
Colbie Boyd, an 11th grader, says: “I’m taking a lot of film classes. “They’re teaching me how to make short films and feature films, which is amazing. And then I have all of my normal classes trying to tie all of that into it, so so we can still get more experiences through that. It’s amazing.”
Many of these students have big dreams of making a name for themselves in the film industry.
“Everybody knows Indiana Jones, everyone knows yada-yada. I want to be a household name,” Marioni said.
As Marioni can tell you, this internship also gives students a foot in the door.
“You meet a lot of people,” says Marioni, “and you just make so many contacts — and that’s really half the process.”
For what’s next?
“Keep filming, keep making movies. Another thing I want to do is go to the Disney College Program and see how it goes,” Boyd said. “But let’s go back to New Mexico right after that.”
“Now that Netflix is coming in and people are filming here, I really don’t see myself leaving unless something changes,” Marioni said. “I certainly hope it doesn’t.”
“I have a list of things that I can do,” Cotton said. “I’m thinking of maybe becoming a zoologist, a marine biologist or maybe becoming a teacher. The list goes on.”
