Hello, my name is Mercedes Travis. I am currently a film student at the Academy of Art University located in San Francisco. I have been taking online classes at this school since the spring of 2010 and I would like to transfer to NYU for my last couple years of school. I regret not going away to school, but I stayed at home to help out. I would love to get work in the film industry before moving to New York for the experience and so I will be able to support myself because I know living in New York can be very expensive. I am originally from New York and moved to Virginia after I graduated high school in 2009. Living in a small town in Virginia has been an absolutely miserable experience. I find myself taking on work just to pay bills and being unhappy because I am working outside the industry I am passionate about, film! I would love to land an entry-level position in this industry.
I am ready to move on from these horrible five years in Virginia and move back to New York and start my life and career in the film industry.
I have been in the industry since 2010.
