Dear Patrick,I am very excited to let you know how things went with my college acceptances and where I'll be going.
I've decided on USC, the University of Southern California, and their School of Cinematic Arts! I know that your Filmmakers Ink instruction is what helped confirm for me that I wanted to work in Film and also helped me to identify the career I wanted to pursue. I am positive your instruction went a long way in preparing me well enough for USC's standards, as well as for the other universities I applied to. Therefore, I also appreciate your willingness to do the recommendation letter for me because I am sure your own credentials and what you saw in me as a teacher was helpful to them.
I hope your film is coming along well.

Patrick, My son has never had such a great camp experience! Every morning he was eager to learn more, delighted by everything he had already learned. Quite simply he both adored it and learnt a great deal. So a big thank you... We will put the word out among our friends as I was really impressed by everything about your camp.
I hope you have a great summer. Many thanks for giving us a great start to ours, keep in touch, Clare

"Our son has been interested in making movies since the age of 2, and said it best, "This was better than my wildest dreams!" Thank you for this opportunity! He's already got his friends working on a new movie." - Jennifer, parent.
Patrick McCullough, founder of Filmmakers Ink, has recently directed the feature film, Slider. The film has been edited and is currently completing color correction and a sound mix in Post-Production. What makes this especially wonderful is that the screenwriter and one of the Producers on the film is Brett Marshall, a two-time Filmmakers Ink student and current staff member. Brett is graduating from Emerson College this year and is destined for great things!
