My first step into Media Arts was in early Spring of 2017. I was an undecided, yet energetic freshman attending Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. I was enrolled in several film courses that all piqued my interest to a point where I wanted to get a better taste of what this sorta industry is like. So I reached out to a buddy of mine, who was involved in this online video news network put on by him and several other students I knew. They told me that they were looking for an editor and that I could start immediately. I quickly managed to become familiar with the ways of operation and the creative process on set, and in less than a week, I was gripping, editing and helping direct content for the network. Unfortunately, due to a sharp spike in my workload for school as the term began to kick up, I had to part ways with my revered network.


Currently, I continue to work towards building skills and gaining knowledge on the harrowing path of a film major. Now a sophomore pursuing an undergraduate in Oregon, I plan to eventually develop my current situation into that of a filmmaker facilitated by the Media Arts program.

    It’s hard to get sucked into the post because there’s nothing that seems inviting or out there at the beginning, giving a slight bit of dullness. Another problem I saw was that no name was given. Who are you, mysterious person and what’s DOQ?

    it’s hard to make sacrifices for school, but you show a good and clear work ethic. You seem to know the path you’re on. Stay on the path and more opportunities will always arise for people willing to work.
