Last week, I sat down in my dorm room to interview fellow Emory student (and director of the award-winning film “Tick Tock“) Ien Chi. As referenced in the interview, this is take two–the original was lost in the ether of poor wifi.

In the interview, we talk about how to succeed in whatever you’re passionate about when your school may not have any official support for it. In Ien’s case, he’s an award-winning director at a school with no film program. We cover funding, social networking, and how to get involved with whatever you’re passionate about in your city, off-campus.

Ien’s website is here, and you can check out his YouTube channel here. If you have any questions for him, comment here or email him at the address he gives in the video–ien.chi96@gmail.com.
