My video teacher at Pratt showed us this film, they made it for about $25,000, it’s so awesome!

The aesthetics and music are what I find to be the most striking, it’s visually stunning.

Need to do more blogging…

Summer and school, as I predicted,  ended my habitual blogging, but I’d like to try and pick it up again, maybe start writing a little more personally about projects, things I’m doing at school, work that inspires me, and blah blah.

Currently I have a few projects I’m working on, I’m in the process of putting together a subway shoot, not sure what I am going to do for costumes yet, because Bennington had a sick costume dept., but New York is most definitely filled w/ some great thrift stores that I’ll just have to pour through one day. I just recently met w/ my Art History professor and discussed one of my ideas for a photo shoot where I’d be referencing iconic sculptors and paintings then modernize them to depict America’s current social infrastructure. I’m going to include pieces like Lady Justice, the Abraham Lincoln Memorial statue, American Gothic, and etc. I’m a little pissed at Pratt because I can’t check out lights, medium format cameras, or use the lighting studio because I’m in a ‘foundations,’ course… so I’ll have to try and figure out a way around the system.

Next fall I am going to Pratt in Brooklyn, I’ve been really exciting and impatient to learn more about what the other students at Pratt are doing (because I still haven’t gone down to see the school AND I have dialup, so looking up information takes longer than you’d think). I found this video (which took 3 hours to load) that a fashion student put online of his work, which is truly amazing. The description says his inspiration comes by Scandinavian winters, which goes on to say how many impressive awards he won for his collection. Also, if you really like the song ( because I do and didn’t know I had it, thanks to Mojo, until two days ago) it’s called We Share our Mother’s Health by The Knife. Enjoy!
