Hello, my name is Gabe and I’m an 18-year-old with a dream of becoming a movie director. If this plan does not work, I will rely on medicine. And again if that doesn’t work, I will rely on real estate. My plan for my life is following what I love, and ultimately, I wish to help people in any way I can. When I watch a movie, in particular, one directed by Christopher Nolan, I feel both inspired and optimistic for the future. In a similar manner, I wish to give others the same feeling of hope the way Nolan movies do for me.
Outside my realm of movie sensations, I love to spend time with family and friends. I find laughter as one of the timeless experiences one can share with others. However, on a philosophical note, I would argue that in order to feel this type of greatness, one would need to experience some sadness along the way. From a film standpoint, it’s the ability to recognize the feeling of loss without having experienced it yourself at that moment – a feeling of transcendence.
While I believe heavily in philosophical meanings, I solely remain as an 18-year-old boy with the dream of becoming a movie director. But I believe after this class, I will have obtained the knowledge and experience that will prepare me well for the industry of tomorrow. And as I look for the optimism in life, I am confident that all things will go well.
I have been into media production my whole life and aim to a lead director of a video game development company or have my own company that both develops and produces video games. I plan to climb my way through that field though animation, art design, and narrative writing. I have an insanely strong imagination, so much that i can easily get lost in thought because i basically change all of my surroundings in my head. I used to struggle with focusing because, but i have taught myself to let my thoughts and Shapes (images) flow through me and not hold onto anything that comes into my mind for too long. I chose to take Multimedia design because i knew i could learn multiple skills to help my bring those ideas that my imagination fabricates into reality. I also like making music within an program called Ableton 10, it’s a has lots of tools and effects i can use and also i can download software and purchase physical MIDI equipment online. I started using Ableton ever since a friend of mine introduced me to his method and process when creating music with samples and a keyboard, i have just fell in love with it ever since.
Hello, I’m Isaac Reyna, a 19-year-old graphic designer & collegiate athlete from North Bend, Oregon. I’m currently studying graphic design & multi-media at Lane Community College while playing soccer for the Lane Men’s Soccer team. I chose to attend Lane Community College to improve my portfolio, gain skills, and gain experience needed to become successful in the real world with the hopes of one day working and creating graphics for a professional sports organization.
I started to become interested in graphic design before I even knew what it was. As a young boy, I would edit photos or create product ideas on free online editing software and spend hours on hours of my free time just trying to put what was in my head into a picture on my screen. It was a way for me to use my creativity as an outlet from the real world. Before I graduated from high school I didn’t really think about what I was going to do for the rest of my life in regards to a career. I mainly focused on athletics, but I settled on becoming a police officer since I enjoyed the idea of chasing “bad guys” around town. I decided on attending Lane Community College as a stepping stone in my athletic career.
As college started I continued to be creative. I would create graphics for the Lane Men’s Soccer team on my free time and really enjoyed doing it. I then realized what my idea of fun was a job, and quickly researched graphic design. The more I read about it, the more I wanted to become a graphic designer. I called professionals in the field of graphic design and in professional sports since athletics is still a major part of my life, and want to create graphics for a professional sports organization someday. I asked, “what are the steps I need to take to do what you are doing as a career”.
Now I’m here, studying graphic design and multi-media and loving every minute of it.
Im Saul. Im 28 years young and a freelance web designer and developer. I have been working freelance for the last 6 years and have loved the challegnce and the lessons that have come with it. As a self-taught designer and developer, there are many difference roads that come and go and Multimedia is where I’m headed.
I got my first web job doing data entry, entering in names and email addresses. Super simple. For that some company today, I am the Web Editor for all of their online publication. I have gotten to work with big businesses like this and small businesses that have two or three products that they want to sell online. I am able to make that happen.
Working with WordPress, Adobe Suites, Google, and many other softwares, I have been able to see a small glimpse of all the wonders that one can come into contact with. I have a truly grateful attitude to the internet and all things digital.
I started a small design and marketing business that I am super stoked about. I want it to become something that I can rely on and build. I want to be able to work with digital art and marketing and media and spread the joy of it to all.
My name is Alex Garcia, I come from a small city by the name of Cannon Beach. As I stated before Cannon Beach has a population of around 1,100 people and is most known for being home to the Haystack Rock.
As far as my personal interests go, I like to play video games, mostly multiplayer games like Call of Duty and FIFA. And as of right now the only single player/multiplayer game I play is Red Dead Redemption 2.
Besides playing video games another passion that I have is working out. It was only recently that I got into working out due to the fact that I wanted to lose weight. I started about two months ago and I weighed in at around 176 lbs. As of this week I am currently weighing in around 156 lbs. I found out it was a really great way to relieve some stress and it was something that changed my mood and changed the way I would approach things like procrastination, being unmotivated, and things like that.
Another one of my passions is creating and uploading YouTube videos. This is something that I really love to do and creating video ideas is something that I struggle with. I also really struggle with uploading on a consistent basis. At the moment my YouTube channel DezeNuggetz (friends started calling me that as a nickname, so that’s where it originated from) has 285 subscribers. But I find that for me this is a way to get creative as there are times where I have lots of time on my hands.
Lastly, what I would like to do after I finish the Media Arts program is to work for a sports company like Adidas, Nike or Puma and help design shoe ideas, accessory ideas or sport jersey’s, mainly soccer.
Hi, my name is Krista Ortiz and I am a 20-year-old multimedia student here are Lane. I have attended college previously for 2 years and began my studies at Lane in Fall 2018. I am very passionate about music and I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I mainly play bass guitar, but I also play many other instruments. Music in my life has been a defining factor in my personal development.
Another passion of mine is art. Most of my artistic life, I have only experimented with analog art such as painting and drawing. I absolutely love painting with all of my heart. Some other activities that I do is attend music festivals. They are my favorite form of art and music together. After attending shows for over a year, I started to become more curious about the way the art is made. If some people don’t know, festivals mainly use motion graphics that are projected onto a screen. This fascinated me, which led me to get into the multimedia program here at Lane.
The past two years of my life have been about searching and discovering who I am. If someone isn’t comfortable with themselves or their life, then how will they figure out what they want to do? We are always told to do something “practical” and because of that, people like me spend years studying something that doesn’t make them happy. I feel that I have found the right career path for me that has the possibility to involve my two passions: art and music.
Hello, I’m Jacob Adams an 18-year-old Cinematographer & Website Designer from North Bend, Oregon. I’m currently studying multimedia here at Lane to improve my portfolio to show clients as well as gain knowledge on the given subject. My main hope for this course as an introduction to multimedia is to improve the way I interact with clients and how I form connections in the media environment. Then in exchange, I hope to contribute to the class a different enthusiasm for entrepreneurship in the digital world.
Some of my work can be seen in my online portfolio, (www.jacobdadams.com). Mainly film is my passion. Through this, I have led a production team of four students who were going to high school with me. Since graduating we each have followed different paths, some going to school for film, others persuading different lines of education. Through this team, I got to produce 30 different films. These films ranged from Mental Health public service announcements, to what makes the perfect mayor. Recently, Lane Community College approached me to produce a short promo film for the cross country team. This helped present the team to potential athletes as well as be featured on the Lane CC website.
The main thing I stand for on every project I produce is that each should tell a story. I hope to turn this passion into a career by going to school and later working with companies and organizations to produce advertisements. With that said, I also have the ambition to be a part of the production of a full-length documentary feature, later in life. In all, I have high hopes for this course and the individuals connected to it.
