Jack enjoys making movies and wants to be in the movie business when he is older, whether it’s writing, directing, or editing them. Jack always loved to watch movies and would inquire how they were done. Now, he is actually making his own movies. He says, “The entire process of making them is really fun.” Jack enjoys filming the most because of all the different things that you could do with it.
