Another busy semester another lone journal entry to accompany it.
Been busy at a Public Relations Internship; made 1 study abroad promotional video, 3 university promotional videos (1 is actually locally broadcasting), 2000+ photographs, and 3 press releases.
It's sad cause 99% of those 2000+ photographs will NOT see the light of day. They were photographs I took for a dance conference to be used to judge the competition. I wasn't told about this until after the 1st day of the event when I had to select 20 out of 400 photos to be given to the judges and I only had 5 minutes to select them. I rushed through the 380 mediocre photos to find just 20 perfect photos.
I have all those 2000+ photos and I look through them and think how awesome it would be to put those up here, but that won't happen sadly. If anything I can probably put these up months down the road with a big copyright logo plastered on the center, which is completely contrary to how I want people to enjoy photos. I want people to take them, save them, use them, and enjoy them. But whatever.
Filming is slow as ever. Made one terrible exercise that will not see the light of day, one experimental film that came out fine, and I'm working on one last documentary before the semester is over. The documentary is gonna be tricky to make as I've never been good at anything classical in the sense of film. It's to be a political commentary at the state of the city my university resides in. It's screening will be at the end of the month and I've only got a few minutes of b-roll done.
I envision the documentary to be very negative about this city, but not in a way meant to condemn. I want to inspire small changes in the average person that may or may not create better change to the city, really I don't expect anyone to give two damns about the message of anything I make. I'd be happy if people just understand the complaints of the film, whether people take my documentary seriously is up to them. Maybe those sentences came off a little pretentious, they kind of sound it in my head, but my films have no purpose other than to just simply exist.
Thanks for reading.
Now back to my internship.
