From 2010 to 2011

Wrapping up the Fall semester in 2010 was very eventful. While working on regular Anthropology classes, I worked on a student documentary film (currently in post production) with Joe Bolinger and worked for Rob Lemkin on the follow-up documentary to the award winning film "Enemies of the People".(Please view the following address for awards list: This event was absolutely historic, involving a video conference between Cambodian refugees here in the United State and their confrontation of key members of the Khmer Rouge.

In the spirit of my 2010 semester excitement, I am continuing the roll. I have an amazing but very full class schedule from Artifact Analysis to Geographic Cartography. Also, on Thursday, January 27, the City of Long Beach will be conducting the "Everyone Counts" 2011 homeless Count operated out of the Multi-Service Center (MSC) which is an annual event required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to conduct a street and service homeless count. My volunteer shift starts at 7am (there is an earlier shift, but not enough coffee was going to do it for me!) My map segment will be one of 47 and will be assigned the morning of the count. I am looking forward to absorbing as much as I possibly can, and creating some favorable connections for a current film proposal. This sounds like a great way to kick off the new year and Spring semester. Not too shabby for my first week of classes.

Wish me luck!

November - Full of Deadlines

Well as you can tell from my previous post, I need to report on my Ethno Film Production class. However, this has been done on another Blog set up by Prof. Steven. If you click on my photo, it will show you the two blogs I am a part of, this one you are reading and the class blog. However, if you don't feel like clicking on that, the direct link is:

Enjoy reading about our amazing class and the film students. We are having a blast in there. Film making is very fun.

Blog Assignment for Ethno Film

The month of August was busy with PADI classes and starting the Fall 2010 semester. I could not find the time to sit down and give a description of my amazing Bulgarian journey and San Andreas Fault Field Study.

However, I will still be attempting to do this throughout the semester. I have put together a folder of my travel plans, receipts, photos and all other pieces of information that relates to my trip. It will be very fun to post.

In the meantime, I am taking an Ethnographic Film class. Part of the class instruction is to write up to five(5) blog posts. So cheers to my first blog posts as being a part of film making!

Until then, thanks for paying me a little attention on this vastness we call the web.
