  • I like how in movies and television shows directors would portray teens going wild and running off to some foreign land for vacation over spring break. In reality, I can assure you that less than half of teens really do that kind of stuff.  It may be that it is our obligation to stay home […]

  • Unlike some parents, my parents always seem to create the most complex situations out of the plain and ordinary. They always seem too busy for anything and leave all decision making in the hands of their children. However, when they dislike what we enjoy pursuing in school they criticize and discourage us. My parents are […]

  • Tumblr: In the past I have tried writing in a regular book but that did not turn out very well for me. I would usually abandon my journal, and other times I would forget what I was going to write about. I also do not like to write things out manually when a computer is […]

  • 1. When a person repeats something another person has just said. I do not know if these people are trying to be funny but the person just said it ten seconds ago. 2. People who constantly contradict themselves. 3. When people lie to me and my friends. I do not get what these people are […]

  • This semester I am taking my very first painting class. My biggest mistake in taking this class was assuming that the class was going to be relatively simple. To my surprise the class work and expectations of the class were very different from how I imagined it to be. I thought that the paintings I […]

  • Things I am knowledgeable about and find fascinating: Aside from the five basic senses that most humans are equipped with which include sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell I personally do not feel that I am an expert in any field in particular. I do however, have a good understanding of astrology. When I find […]

  • Last week the class was introduced to two extraordinary professors in the math and science field. Although both these subjects are not my cup of tea I found their words and research to be fascinating. One thing I noticed between the two speakers was the fact that they were both extremely passionate about their work. […]

  • I honestly felt that I learned a lot from last week’s class. For one thing, Professor Repole was extremely enthusiastic and his personality really lit up the room. He encouraged everyone to take an acting class and made me see how acting was something more than simply putting on a show, however, the process of […]

  • In the article “On a Certain Blindness in Human Beings,” William James urges people to make the most of their life because humans tend to carry a certain amount of “blindness.” In some instances people are so consumed by things that they fail to see what’s in front of them. As I was going through […]

  • As Wild states, “The emphasis and development of critical thinking skills lies in the act of revision, of re-seeing one’s written work, illuminated by assertions, commentary, and classroom debates.” This quote has aided me in my own views on revision and writing in general. I now understand how to look back at my essays and […]

    Regina I liked the way you compared Maya’s film to Vertov’s style of film making. Reading through your program notes for her video I felt that you did an effective analysis on her work. You also incorporated your own thoughts and opinions throughout your program notes to help explaining why she did such brilliant job, […]

    Carlene I think you did a really good job writing program notes for Brad’s video. I really like how towards the end of your writing you not only included your opinions on his film, however, you also added critiques on what people in class though of his video.

  • I like how you interpreted the film in the last sentence of your post. Now that I think about it, Bonnie and Clyde had become pretty cocky and boastful with the success of their crime. This also relates to the idea that those who have power tend to abuse it because it goes to their […]

  • Realistic documentary style film Bonnie and Clyde ( Warner Brothers, 1967) directed by Arthur Penn revolves around two partners and their adventures in traveling around central U.S. robbing banks in hopes of becoming rich and famous.  Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) is a young woman who is fed up with her job as a waitress meets Clyde […]

  • Thank you to everyone who watched and or commented on my video! 😀 @ Cindy and Ikey Yeah putting the vending machines there was suppose to be a bit humorous, haha. But I was just trying to prove how terrible it would look if the sculptures were removed and replaced with vending machines. and @ […]

  • I agree with what Ikey said. And the beginning of your film kind of frightened me a bit due to the unexpected two seconds of terror music, haha. But I think the way you went about it and ending the film with your observational documentary was a good choice followed by simply moving your camera […]

  • Outline: Provide a brief summary about the director A list of the persons previous works and how those films represent who they are and impact their style. The directors initial feelings towards their art work and their motive or purpose behind it. Give a general summary about the assignment, define Kino-Prava. Give summary about their […]

  • I’m not sure who’s Kino-Pravda is most Vertovian, however I felt that Maya did a good job though her collage of pictures. I think my favorite part of my video would have to be my introduction in showing my sculptures. I decided to reshoot that footage for my Kino-Pravda starting with the bush and the […]
