By • Feb 24th, 2010 • Category: Editing, Honors Thesis, Research

Major accomplishment: Ben Lomond rough rough cut. It’s coming together though. I think in general the footaae turned out well. It is not ideal since I would have preferred to show what a field hospital would have been like a day or so after the battle but the reenactment I filmed was portraying a longer […]

(and the countdown to this whole project being due) So…wow…it’s been a year since I started this project.  Last winter break I was doing a lot of research and filmed an interview in a courtroom…(bad acoustics, bad idea).  This break I actually haven’t even brought a camera home but I now have a different piece […]

A precarious position…

By • Jun 27th, 2009 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

 …the thinking side of things.  Most of my posts to this point have been about what I am doing as far as what is physically needed for this project. Henceforth, I’m going to try to shed some light on the mental processes as well. I used “precarious position” to describe the place I find myself […]

About that break….

Well I think it’s safe to say that this semester has gone by the fastest yet, perhaps the 17 credits I’m taking has something to do with it. I’ve been doing a lot of work with my project recently and have run into some setback as well as some great finds. In speaking with my […]

It’s been awhile

By • Feb 3rd, 2009 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Well I’m not sure how it is already February but time flies once classes start. To go back to the end of break.  I was able to do two interviews before I had to head back to school.  I interviewed Pamela Sackett who has done a lot with the Friends group that was associated with […]
