My name is Cole Messutta and I’m a Columbia College Alumni. My last semester at Columbia was May 2010. My major was film and video with a concentration in directing. I have always enjoyed breaking down films after I have seen one. To me it’s like a tradition. Ever since my first semester at Columbia, when I was taking an acting basic skills class, I was learning how to develop a character. It’s such a tough spot to be when you have to learn lines and be directed by someone. Normally, I am directing someone and another person is learning or speaking lines. I want to work with people on a basis where things run smoothly. Where the environment doesn’t feel rushed or people are yelling, though with people who can talk calmly and generously to one another. I am an open, fun, and hard working person. I don’t let things get in my way and I get a task done when it needs to be done. There are people who have that procrastinating look to them. I have seen many people when I go to work with them on a set and I can see I am going to have to tell them to do something multiple times. I get things done right when someone asks me to do it and don’t complain or have an attitude about it.
