(One day I would like to either work with film or TV production. I am interviewing Professor Chriss Williams, how teaches Film at William Paterson University. There questions are based on how he began his career, what is some good advice, and if he is happy now).
Galka: What made you want to choose this as your career in life?
Williams: I had a great professor at Montclair State (Where I went to college) in a GE art class I had to take: Filmmaking. It changed my life.
Galka: What is one of best experiences you had being in this career?
Williams: Working with Spike Lee. He was friendly and demanding, but I always made him laugh.
Galka: Are you happy, do have fun, and does it fulfill your life, why or why not?
Williams: I laugh way too much and enjoy my life because I am around college-aged kids every day.
Galka: What is the best advice you would give to someone pursuing this career?
Williams: Watch every film. Read every script. Be critical and work harder than everyone else.
Galka: What made you decide to teach this?
Williams: In film school at NYU I was a teaching assistant and fell in love with it.
