Hi! My name is Rachel Mallasch! I am a freshman at Azusa Pacific University about 25 miles Southeast of LA and I am a BFA(Bachelor of Fine Arts) Film Production major. For my first semester film classes, I took Production and Intro to Directing and loved it! Second semester I’ll be taking Sound Design, Cinema & Television Business, and Story & Character. I’m obsessed with APU and California! I love being so close to the industry. I got a job at APU’s Equipment Distribution Center second semester in addition to assistant producing for a senior thesis film called “Luiseno.” I am thinking about emphasizing in either producing or sound design but I am still unsure. Anyways check out some of my work http://rachelmallasch21.weebly.com/
