There are a lot of freshmen at Long Beach that consider going into film and many that would never consider it. Being given the opportunity to get behind and in front of the camera offers the rare chance to experiment with the film industry. And this week did not disappoint.
As I experienced last semester, sometimes getting in touch with your artist can be a kind of painful experience. You are talking to these wonderful artists or performers who have incredibly busy schedules. So not only do you have to worry about making plans and deciding on a location, you also have to worry about what to ask them and how you will manage to show off their art in Secondlife and how it will impact your grade. This is why, despite some set backs and resulting extensions, I am so proud of my students these past two weeks for doing all that they could do and sometimes more to prove that they will work hard at this project.
Well you guys are anyways 😛 I had such a blast seeing all of your guys’ creative ideas for the flash mobs. Some of the videos had me out loud laughing in the library with tons of people looking at me weird but it was worth it lol. I loved seeing all of the other people”s reactions to your flash mob as well. It was fun to see how some people were freaked out and how some people joined in! I wish i would have participated in some of them. I think my favorite ones were the GroupHug and the RecyclingRejoicing. Great work you guys, it took a lot of organizing, commitment, and creativity, and a lot of you stepped up to the plate! (: Read more
