Graduation. As If.

Neilson graduated from ITP yesterday. The speaker was Amy Heckerling, of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless fame. Which meant this was the first time I have ever been excited to hear the speaker at a graduation I attended. Her speech was a little long, but funny. (She has a thick Bronx accent, which surprised me given her two great movies were about Southern California.) She gave some good advice, from don't smoke and don't wear high heels to you don't have to make bad movies just because someone is willing to pay you to do it. (ITP is part of Tisch, which houses NYU's film and drama schools.) After the ceremony, we had a picnic in Central Park. More pictures on Flickr.
