Nashville, TN, United States, 2011/08/23 - Students past, present, and future at Nashville Film Institute “NFI” now have a leading professional to explore, learn, and obtain mentorship from - TheNFI.com / Poliarc.com.
Within the film making industry it is very difficult to simply graduate from film school and become a successful film director, producer, or editor without receiving the proper training. NFI knows the challenges that students face when getting ready to graduate and to get a job in the field they have studied. This is what sets NFI apart from many secondary learning institutions.
Knowing the school is only successful as it’s graduates, Prema Thiagarajah CEO of NFI has made strides in getting the best instructors to lead not only classes but also leading film making workshops. One of these leading professionals is Matt Coale, a professional Director of Photography in Nashville, Tennessee.
Matt Coale is an Emmy Award winning Director of Photography working out of Nashville, Tennessee. Matt is a film school graduate of Southern Illinois University, studying under the guidance of documentary filmmaker Steven James (Hoop Dreams). Matt has photographed over 100 documentaries, 1500 commercials, 165 music videos and 750 television programs. His work has garnered well over 116 film/video awards.
Matt serves on the Advisory Board at NFI in which he uses his many years of experience to instruct, guide, and mentor students wanting to become professional film makers. Within a week of accepting the position, despite his heavy workload, Matt pulled his resources together to organize 3 workshops for the students that will benefit them in multiple ways as filmmakers.

ANSWER: That’s simple...because I didn’t get that.
