My name is Milton Pareta and I’m a film major. I grew up in Los Angeles, California and recently moved to Oregon last June. I know it sounds ironic that I moved from the film capital of the world to Oregon. Well it’s a bit of a story of why I moved to Oregon. I was going to Cal State Fullerton for about five years. I was going through personal and financial problems which made me move back to Los Angeles. I moved into a friend’s house. Last June I came to visit a friend who was graduating at the University of Oregon. It was a Saturday night we all went out and after the bars we went back home. On the way back from the bars a taxi driver ran two red lights while speeding and t-bone the car I was in. From this accident I suffered multiple injuries. I spent two weeks in the hospital and few months rehabbing. I decided to stay in Oregon because of medical reason and it’s more affordable than Los Angeles.
I love to explore and try new things. Living in a big city there’s a lot of activities to do. Eugene in the other hand I have a hard time finding activities. It made me think Eugene as a farm town with nothing to do. Since I was a little kid movies have always been my passion. My goal in life is to win an Academy Award. I want to become a screenwriter but learn everything about film. I had an internship at a talent agency out in the Miracle Mile which taught me the business part. Hard work and dedication will help reach my goals.
