Film Man Extraordinaire

It feels kinda weird that I am writing this post about myself, but hey Posse world!

21st century video media productionI love movies and I also love making movies. I’m currently in my last year at Middlebury as a Film and Media Culture major.  Right now I’m taking the advanced video production class where I have a short film assignment each week.  It’s a lot of work but it’s really nice having all these videos at the end of it.

I’m not sure what exactly I’m gonna do when I graduate but I really hope it involves film or tv production.  I also really love cinematography and camera operating.  That being said, I am very excited to share with you all one of my videos today.  This is a music video that I made for the video production class that I am currently taking.  The song is “Holiday” by Vampire Weekend.  I didn’t get anyone to act in it, so I did all the shooting and acting myself! I hope you like it.
