Media Arts Festival Production- PSA



We, in a group hand-selected by our own will, were to forcibly enter in a contest we were not ready to participate in. We were rushed all the way through but we all attempted to create a video of our own devisings that would inform the general public about earthquake safety.

They were other topics ¬†besides earthquake safety of course, which now sound much more appealing, but my group and I had a great deal of fun while filming so I can’t complain. There was a point whilst shooting in which I stopped trying due to looming due dates that were far too demanding to complete such a gargantuan film. I know I could have done far better if given the appropriate amount of time. I am shrugging as I am typing this. I felt like you should know.


La Vie En Rose Reflection



The task given to us after a month-long vacation (in which I’m very sure my mind has completely run off to some undisclosed location of which I’m unaware of) was to watch a movie and write a reflection detailing its cinematography. The paper was to be three to five pages long.


La Vie En Rose Reflection


The inner sloth in me rejoiced in viewing such a movie so early in the semester but having realized that Edith Piaf would be discussed throughout most of the film, I flailed my limbs in a truly unnecessary fashion before gluing my eyes to the screen, never blinking until it was absolutely vital to my health. Piaf has been one of my favorite performers for quite a while and I was delighted to spend instruction time learning about her origins. Non Je Ne Regrette Rien has been my ringtone for three years I believe and I was humming like a loon the entire time. The paper itself was tricky and, if I had not been giving other tasks by other classes, I would’ve been more coherent. I wrote this at around 3 AM and some of the wording may be awkwardly phrased and perhaps that is the one thing that I regret doing.¬†
