Hi I'm Lizzy!
I'll be your instructor for this course.
I created Squishy Banana Studios to give kids and and young adults a way to express themselves and celebrate their inner movies stars. With a background in childcare and a career in the Austin film industry, I merged my two loves together and created Squishy Banana Studios. I got my start at the Texas Film Commission and worked for Terrence Malick as his post-production coordinator, and freelanced on a number of commercials and feature length films in casting, locations, and production. We've been creating movies since the spring of 2013. We'd love to create some movie magic with you!
