Hello there! My name is Rocio Roberts-Goodban and I am a Multimedia student at Lane Community College. I was born and raised for most of my life in Eugene, Oregon. I spent a year and a half in Portland, Oregon working as a nanny! I come from a mixed background, my mother is half white and half Native American, while my father is fully Mexican. I grew up surrounded by Spanish and English, yet chose to study 4 years of Japanese in high school. Working in Japanese horror films has always been a secret dream of mine. I’ve always been obsessed with movies and TV since I was a child. I studied film at Portland State University before the pandemic caused me to move home and go through many personal hardships. I believe that with every challenge can come opportunity, and I’ve now developed more passion, motivation, and inspiration for a career in the industry. My goal is not only to become an independent wedding videographer, but also to become a production assistant or screenwriter. I want to gain more computer skills, learn about web design and photography. I’m excited to dip my toes in many new and different types of media, so I hope to become a more well rounded and versatile person.
I’m Isabella FM. I’m currently enrolled in Lane community college to earn a transfer degree in psychology, due to my fascination with neuroscience and sociology. I’m taking media arts because that was the degree I was initially interested in. *I wanted to be an animator and work for Pixar or something. So I’m curious to see how this class will unfold and see if it sparks past passions that have slowly faded over time. I still wouldn’t mind that career path but becoming a therapist is also a path I wouldn’t mind going down, so I’m at a fork in the road when it comes to planning my future and career.
A little about me, I spend my free time either reading a book or on a hunt for a new one. I adore tea, *the stuff you drink, not gossip, so I have a tendency to spend my time in a tea shop reading. I’m a barista and I have two jobs so I’m a fairly busy person. I’m introverted so I like to spend my time in a quiet warm place. I like to travel as well; the most exciting place I’ve been to is Greece. I have a cat named Bergamot who is always by my side when I’m home.
I think that’s just enough to share about myself to get a good feel of who I am.
Books I recently finished or am reading: – Carmilla: Josph Sheridan Le Fanu – My year of rest and relaxation: Ottessa Moshfegh – Play it as it Lays: Joan Didion -Emotional intelligence: Travis Bradburry & Jean Greaves
P.S I also own a cat named Bergamot and if you are into astrology I’m a Cancer.
Ridic was the first to come up with the idea to make a skit about newscasters, and we wrote the entire script over the phone. Most of the production work naturally fell on ridic because he had better access to filming equipment and the relative complexity of his scenes. Because of this I did the majority of post production. During filming I created a news intro in blender and made Ridic’s background photo using the same file. Then I shot my scenes with help and equipment from ridic. After Ridic cleaned up the raw audio I put all of the clips together and added the music and effects to make the final product.
In the end, working with a partner taught me a lot about the actual process of filmmaking, how to work with a team, and how to complete a project you don’t have full control over.

Most of my favorite movies have plots that sound completely stupid on paper, but have a nearly perfect execution that makes them profound. I figured I would take a shot at something like this when I’m young and no one cares. So I decided to make a surreal (and thankfully exaggerated) video about my experience doing VFX in blender. I started with recording most of the live action stuff first, then doing some screen capture with shadowplay. About a third of the way through I had to re-format my hard drive to avoid a major computer catastrophe. Nearly giving me a heart attack and wasting almost a full day of my time. I spent more time than I expected to on editing because I wanted to emulate the heavily edited montage like style of directors like Guy Ritchie.
In typical Quinn Brown fashion I got in WAY too over my head for this project. At the beginning I knew I wanted to read a passage from an HP Lovecraft story so I chose to read from “The Festival” because of it’s descriptiveness and the fact that it’s one of his more underrated short stories. The story is about a young drifter who returns to the town of his ancient ancestors, but when curiosity gets the better of him he’s ensnared in a dark ritual known only as the festival. The first major problem that I encountered was the fact that the scene described in the paragraph I chose is meant to be almost completely silent. This meant that I had to try my best with simulating the ambiance of the scene by making it sound like a large group of people quietly walking past the listener. I’m not completely happy with the result but I should have known from the start that it would be hard for someone with as little experience as me to mix a scene like this.

Hello my name is Svetlana Starodubtseva and I’m 18 years old. I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. I’m the first one out of my entire family to be born in America. While every one of my family members was born in Russia. Hence my first and last name. This is the first year that I am attending Lane, I’m taking the graphic design program which I’m very much looking forward to. Middle school was when I started taking all of the design/tech electives and since then I’ve been very keen on becoming a graphic designer.
My hobbies include drawing, painting, learning to play guitar, photography, and skateboarding. Out of all of those hobbies I mainly focus on drawing. My preferred medium are colored pencils, I’ve tried branching out to other mediums but my outcomes weren’t too successful. Then if I’m not drawing I’m trying to teach myself how to play guitar. Sadly, I was not born with a musical bone in my body. But for the most part I’ve been able to grasp the basics pretty quickly.
After I finish the Media Arts program ideally I’d want to become a graphic designer and work with companies/individuals/etc… But overall I really hope to build on the skills that I already have and find ways to be more creative.
