Just a short time ago I came home from the OJR film festival. This is the eighth one, and the second one i've been to. I went to last year's because I had still been trying to figure out if I was going to take video production, and I liked the films a whole lot. They were well-done by the students and I was excited to in the future be one of them.
Unfortunately, none of the four films I entered git in. But I can't say I'm surprised seeing as I only took one semester of class. But hey, these other students have been doing it their whole high school lives and I made it into the running with "Oscar the Pig Interviews." I told myself I'd go whether my films get in or not, and I enjoyed it. I told myself this last year, in fact.
A select few of the films were scary/dramatic, but most of them ridiculous/funny/comedic/made me want to burst out laughing. It's a good thing I noticed the dvds sold in the lobby or I'd forget some of them or rely on the students to put them on YouTube. But not this time. This time I bought a dvd with the films on it, and I do not regret this since it was only five bucks and the films are really good. I should have gotten one of these anyway since this is the year i graduate.
Wish this year to end soon, I do not. But I don't intend on thinking about that too much or it will end sooner than I think. Making the best of it is all I can do, and its what I will do. I hear we get yearbooks next week, and hopefully soon in the middle of June I can get my "2012 Seniors" documentary done and posted. A lot of my friends who were in it are excited to see the results, and I can't wait to show it to them. In the editing process, it looks great so far. So I'm really itching to put it up and see what they think.
I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than I recommend Video Production for Owen J. Roberts students, 'cause its really good. At least the first class is (I can't tell the other ones 'cause i didnt get a chance to take them). Talk to y'all later! :D
