OTHER NOTES:

PROJECT INFO
The “Train of Thought” project started out as a small idea that broadened in scope and depth over time. College students from Emerson, NYU, Pratt, and Berklee School of Music have gathered in support of this project since June, 2012, creating a tight-knit group of people who are extremely dedicated to the realization of the film. We are currently in the stage of pre-production and aim to begin production by the beginning of January 2013.
PLEASE NOTE:
The shooting will take place in NYC during winter break (January 4- 10th)
This is a NON paying job. It is an INDEPENDENT film project created by college students in Emerson, NYU, and Pratt.
