Meet Ian Franco

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ian Franco.

Ian, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
After deciding mid-way through high school that I wanted to pursue a career in film, I continued my studies with all thing filmmaking as a priority. So now here I am, still a student. Still studying film.

Has it been a smooth road?
No, there has certainly been obstacles along the way. Some things like the intensive work schedule and the constant focus on things like organization and preparation are lessons that I continue to learn and who knows? Maybe I’ll continue to learn this lesson in the years to come. I probably will actually, there’s always something new to learn.

Please tell us more about what you do, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I spent good portions of my free time developing personal video projects for clients, whether it be commercials, advertisements for other businesses, or special videos for loved ones. I have also produced my own collection of short films that helped with my familiarity with the craft for my studies. It is all works in various degrees of quality and efficiency but in the end, it has furthered my experience in videography and film production, from working with different on-set equipment to use of Avid Media Composer and Adobe Creative Cloud.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In film, there has been very impactful changes and there continue to be changes that is taking the industry into a bigger center of diversity and variation. Yet at the same time, there has been the rising trend of continuous franchises and reviving IPs into rereleases and remakes rather than focusing on original works and ideas. But there has been an increased interest in smaller projects coming from places like A24 and Blumhouse, so there may be hope yet.
