“I value the opportunity SFF has given me to explore a field I’m passionate about, it has helped me get a clearer vision of what I want to do for my future. Having a hands-on experience is a challenge that has allowed me to explore what it means to work in a team and also be responsible with important tasks that help the project but also have space for my own creative input”.
“SFF offered me to be a part of a professional environment while still being a student. They have given me tremendous value in terms of adding to my organization skills, time man- agement when dealing with several tasks, working as a team and communicating well”.
“Working for SFF allowed me to develop my editing skills in a professional environment and, thanks to the teamwork and the habit of giving each other’s works feedback, I took advantage of my colleagues’ knowledge and experience as we were all handling different tasks in post-production. I got the chance to learn much from them and get inspired by their creativity and ways of working.”.
“I definitely built up on my research skills, which is something very much needed not only in academia, but in the workplace as well; The project as a whole was a great opportunity to better my communication skills, as well as to work alongside so many intelligent, and talented people. Being a part of SFF made me more motivated to seek help when needed; working in a team has changed my viewpoint and I now know that I can rely on other people as well to get work done”.
“One of the biggest pleasures of working with SFF is being part of the team. I enjoy teamwork, especially when you are work- ing along people who are reliable and passionate in what we want to achieve... I really value the extent of creative freedom we get within SFF, we each have important roles to fulfil but we can also add a little bit of our own input, which leads me to be intentional of all the things I create for the company”.
“SFF was a very immersive learning experience for me. Before making the animations for Simulating Religious Violence I took a course and practiced on my own but SFF gave me the opportunity to do something I’m passionate about in a pro- fessional setting. SFF has given me the confidence to think about future projects I want to personally create and having the Emerging Artists Network beside me is very motivational”.
