Hi, I just wanted to put myself out there. I am Melina and I'm an aspiring Film/music video director looking to gain experience anywhere. Currently a film and media major at FIT, also known as Fashion Institute of Technology, located in Chelsea, NY. I wrote and directed my first short film this past year which was an amazing, exciting, yet scary feeling but I loved it. I am still new to all of this but I am ready and passionate to learn the ins and outs of film making etc. I'm sure most people can agree that it's hard to be a female. Especially in this business, but it is exceptionally hard being a black female. I grew up surrounded by people who gave up on their lives and just stayed around the corner. I want to be different. I don't want to be a product of circumstance nor a product of a certain situation. I aspire to be bigger and better and I will beat the system.
