Here is a small update on my ventures. I have been back on campus for almost a week now and so far, I have:
1. Moved 4 people into their apartments
2. Complete two major art projects
3. Had four meetings
4. Reunited myself with various classmates and faculty
5. Visited to a theme park
6. And worked on the below continuing projects . . .
1. Designing an artist friend's website
2. Shooting video and photography for orientation
3. Editing my documentary
4. Writing/editing 4 short scripts
5. Watching film assignments for my screenwriting class: Panic Room, Phone Booth, Buried, and The Celebration
6. Leading yoga for the men's soccer team as a part of their pre-season
7. (Because I'm an inspired human being) various other side projects
8. Outlining 2 feature scripts
Next week begins New Student Orientation, which means campus will be flooded with Freshman, parents, and siblings whom I must capture with my camera. It's more fun if you think of it like a tour of the African safari. I did this last year, it was quite fun to be apart of the excitement while practicing my skills and lending a service to the school in the form of updated, relevant photos. As the Freshman's' schedule lasts all day, mine does too. Many of the above projects will have to be post-poned.
I've also made a conscious effort to keep myself healthy and energized so I don't become exhausted before the semester even kicks off. I've been doing yoga every day and eating clean 80% of the time for the past 16 days. It's made the time change, activity level, and stress increase so much easier to adjust to.
This semester I will be taking classes in Advance Fiction Writing, Interactive Media, Screenwriting, Film Aesthetics as well as serving as the producer of a tri-weekly broadcast, associate producer of a award winning student sitcom directed by one of my professors, coordinator of a Steadicam workshop taught by Garret Brown as well as several other brilliant operators, and the head editor of a bi-annual publication. In addition, I will be working on various short films and sport broadcasts. It's going to be a jam-packed semester, but each project is full of promise and solid people who will make the experience valuable. I can't wait to get started.
