Those are the first words from Jill Brennan ’04 during a catch-up call this spring. One of the most passionate students in her Grade 12 film course, it is no wonder that Jill has since established herself as a leader at Steam Films, a media production company.
“After graduating from the University of King’s College in 2010, I wanted to work,” says Jill. “That first summer, I was going to bartend in Toronto, but my mom said, ‘no, use your degree!’ So I applied for an internship at Steam Films – basically, office support, coffee runs and assisting on set. Long hours and not glamorous. But what was supposed to be a two-month stint became seven months, their longest internship ever, because I wouldn’t leave!”
