Dear Dean Perry,

We the students of the Digital Filmmaking Concentration of Ramapo College sign this petition with the intention of dissuading you from instating Professor Marta Bautis as Professor of the Senior Project and Senior Project Proposal courses.

Marta Bautis lacks the technical knowledge involved in digital filmmaking to be able to teach a class of this level and importance. Students of Marta Bautis cite her reliance on students, faculty, and staff members to teach basic technical skills in filmmaking. In addition her students recognize a lack of diverse criticism where her advice and critiques on student projects are redundant and unhelpful.

Collectively the students of the Filmmaking Concentration request a professor for the Senior Project class that has a profound understanding of the cinema arts, is able to give constructive criticism on the aesthetic qualities of a film and effectively convey technical knowledge for modern cinema. Professor Neel Scott is a prime example of a talented filmmaker with a strength in teaching college level students. All of Professor Scott’s past and present students recognize how knowledgeable he is, how much experience he has and how helpful he is in improving the filmmaking skills of Ramapo Film students.

With this new insight we trust you will make the best decision for the Ramapo Filmmaking Program. Thank you.


The Digital Filmmaking Students of Ramapo College
