"I can’t think of anything better for film majors than to study abroad. The act of travel and exploration in new places is the submission to an entirely new way of visual learning. The first step in filmmaking is coming to an understanding of the greater story. Exposing yourself to a place and people you have never experienced before is the process of opening your eyes to the greater frame."

- Kirk Rasmussen, Film & Video student
