"Mike, I really enjoyed watching your films. You have a good eye and an engaging visual style. Your camerawork is lovely, definitely a cut above most of your contemporaries at Cypress. Your music selections are very well chosen and your sound design where present is excellent. Now that you have a demonstrated facility with your camera and your handheld technique, you should start exploring stories with dialogue and performance that you can cast and direct. If you can push yourself to breakout of your comfort zone and go to that next level, you’ll have a very good shot a career in the film business. I’m very excited for you Mike. The world is just waiting for you and you have all the possibilities before you."
