Film Content Only?

I am considering a shift in content on this blog. I mean, I really enjoy my ramblings, but as long as they remain ramblings, I wont build much more readership than you few faithful. 


And ideally, I’d like at least a few more people to read what I’ve got to say. Otherwise, this has the potential to turn into a glorified newsletter to keep my family informed of my doings (not good). 

So a shift in content is being considered….

Since I’m a film major, I’d like to talk about movies. Lots of ’em. Unfortunately, of what about them do I talk? There are so many avenues… 

I set up as my ideal (for focused-content blogs) the blog of my fellow FVS major… Read and enjoy! (Robert Ebert even commented on her blog!)

Owl City

I have found a new band to love. Owl City. Here is their amazing music video to their incredible song, “Fireflies.”

Nothing is absolute.

If I come out of school having learned anything, it will be that there are no absolutes in life. Nothing is black and white or crystal clear. Everything comes in different shades and has different faces and can be seen from a different angle.

"First Day of My Life"

This is an adorable music video to “First Day of My Life,” by Bright Eyes. I found the music video on my friend’s Facebook page (I tell you, Facebook provides a never-ending source of content), and now I’ve just finished watching three more of their songs on YouTube. I may have found a new band to love.


Watch this adorably romantic music video:

Tulsa for the Weekend

I just got back from a great weekend in Tulsa. My cousin got married on Friday, so my mom flew down from Montana and my sister flew in from Las Vegas for the wedding. It was such fun to see them both.

Austin Film Festival

The Student Film Production Club is getting a group together to go down to the Austin Film Festival in October, and I am going! 


The festival spans a number of days, but the conference itself is four days, from Oct. 22-25th. Basically the conference is stuffed full of tons and tons of panels and parties and discussions and roundtables and gah!

We all bought student ticket passes, and many of us have gotten into a roundtable event where we will be able to meet with film executives, including: 

•       Richard Bever, Chill Entertainment 
•       Ashley Brucks, Paramount Pictures 
•       Curtis Burch, President of Latitude Productions 
•       Carlo Eugster, Out of the Blue Entertainment 
•       Juliana Farrell, Jersey Girl Films 
•       Jessica Julius, Disney Animation Studios 
•       Maggie Malone, Disney Animation Studios 
•       Matt Summers, Vice President, 821 Entertainment 


And that is just ONE event! There are so many more events that I haven’t had time to look at them all (it’s really an overwhelming list). Good thing I still have a few weeks to decide what I want to attend and who I want to meet and what movies I want to see. For a list of all the conference events at the AFF, click HERE
