REEL VOICES is a summer high school internship where students from around San Diego County come together to learn about documentary filmmaking. They create a short documentary, are mentored by industry professionals, and have the opportunity to learn skills to help them succeed within the business.
During the summer, we'll have the opportunity to meet the students in the REEL VOICES class and have them take us through the journey of creating their short documentary.
This week we meet Lauren Lynch
Lauren has lived in San Diego her whole life, and will be a senior at Francis Parker School this fall. Having watched films (especially foreign cinema) her entire life, she is full of ideas for film projects and can't wait to make her first one this summer in Reel Voices! She is inspired by many great filmmakers, including Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, and Wes Anderson. Lauren loves all things artistic, and is an avid musician, playing both French horn and piano. She also loves Sigur Rós, photography, writing stories, whale sharks, train rides, short films, and traveling around the world.
