1. Watch powerful, heart wrenching documentaries that make you thankful for being alive.
2. Be thankful for new TV shows to fall in love with. And don't be ashamed to love a TV show.
3. Never, I repeat, NEVER take life (or movies) too seriously. Thanks for that lesson, Joss Whedon.
You can take the girl out of film school, but you can't take the film school out of the girl. It's no secret that I love movies and TV. I think they are such a crucial part of our society, in so many incredible ways. Whether it means seeing a story that isn't easy to see, or losing yourself in a world created by a 30 minute TV show, or just plain taking 2.5 hours to have a good time and laugh/scream/yell in a big dark theater with a bunch of strangers. It's valuable and it's meaningful. It is also a productivity sucker and escape-mobile, but if we balance it all out, we'll gain so much from the magic that is media.
If you don't know, I have my BFA in film production, my AA in creative screenwriting, and I taught media art and film production for several years, while in college and there after. Mostly to angsty middle schoolers, the best breed of child. I plan on writing more about it on the space, so if there is anything you want to read/see let me know. I guess that means time for more vloooogs, dontcha think? So this is my introduction to a new minor-focus on this space. I don't review movies or shows, I don't think anyone really wants to know why I thing. But I do want to share more of the things I love, and media-related content.
