“Never again will you have the luxury of being a young budding filmmaker, free in a beautiful city in Europe. This is my current reality. Nothing is better. I guess I am saying that if you are wondering if you should drop everything for a four-month taste of life outside the US, stop wondering. Do it.” – John Belanger, Johns Hopkins University, Film Production Spring 2013
