I found my favorite movie

I am a Media Arts minor, and I am taking a class on “the practice of looking”. We meditate, discuss our emotions, and watch deeply abstract films. This week, we watched a movie called The Diving Bell and The Butterfly. At the beginning of the semester, she assigned the book for it, but I thought we weren’t…

Denny’s doesn’t hold back

For lack of a better word, Denny’s social media presence is … different. And I love it! Denny’s Diner on social media doesn’t hold back on the content they create. Their Instagram consists of beautiful photos of pancakes and breakfast, with a bright filter sprinkled on top of the photo. It’s quite an appealing profile to…

SPJ Blog

This week, we were presented different blogs from different marketers. Each one depicted who they are and the content they provide. Out of all of the blogs, The SPJ Blog is the most well done. I might be biased because I also received a scholarship from the Society of Professional Journalists to attend one of…

Stumbling Upon Something New

The other day, whilst avoiding on doing my homework, I found a 40 minute film on Youtube. This film ended up being a documentary, and I loved it! Only The Essential is the story of a 5 month, 2,668 mile journey on foot from Mexico to Canada across the wilderness of California, Oregon, and Washington….

Her name is Maya Deren, and she is known as one of the most influential experimental filmmakers in America. She sought to make a film where the audience…

Twitter- the superhero of social media

If you’re on Twitter, tell me what you like and dislike about Twitter? I love Twitter because you have the ability to “over-post” without being too much. It’s instantaneous and up-to-date. What I don’t like about it is the amount of ads on Twitter. Sometimes, that is all I see. I still like knowing what…

B-rollin’

As I keep film making, I realize that B-roll footage is actually your A-roll. B-roll is a term used in film that displays shots you use in “background” to something to give off a story.  Its supplementary footage shown during a production. It can make telling a story much easier and compelling with added footage….

My week in photos

The next five photos will show what my week consists of. It’s very random, interesting, and busy! The first photo is from last Sunday, where I went to work at a Food Bank for the radio station Jam’n 94.7 in Santa Fe. The next shot if a photo of a documentary I finished this week…
