Hello, my name is Taylor St. Andrassy and I am currently a senior at the Cleveland Institute of Art receiving my BFA in Photography. I live in Cleveland with my two cats who I love very much. When I’m not in class I can be found volunteering at the Cleveland Animal Protective League or at work. Working at a movie theater has been an amazing job for me because I not only get to watch tons of free movies but I also get to work with other people who love movies and have a lot of great conversations.
I definitely watch a lot of movies but among my favorites are 500 Days of Summer, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Monsters Inc. I really love Monsters Inc. I’m currently rewatching Parks and Rec while I wait for the next season of American Horror Story to come out.
I am very excited to be interning at the Greater Cleveland Film Commission this spring because I have such an interest in movies. As I will be graduating this semester I hope to learn more about the film industry from this internship so I can better prepare myself for life post-grad. I’m looking forward to helping with pre-production work that will be beneficial to others, as well as working in this creative environment and learning as much as I can.
Once I graduate I hope to be working either in the film industry and/or working as a photographer doing editorial work. I also have an interest in working in animal welfare. I would love to be able to start fostering cats and kittens once I graduate. A big inspiration of mine is Hannah Shaw, known as the Kitten Lady on Youtube. Shaw advocates for animal rights while nursing the sickest kittens back to health. As far as my photographic work goes, I am interested in portraits and editorial photography.
