Three days ago, January 24, I set out to film my project for the Video Storytelling Intermediate course. It's about my friend from work who fur traps. I scheduled the whole day to shoot and he drove me as far as he could into the mountains in his Ford Ranger.

I'm comming off the buzz of my early success with 'The Making of an Artist'. I'm hoping it's not just beginners luck! But, it's time to move on.

So, I'm going to focus my efforst on a project targeting that course's material. I really like the 1 minute format. It's a great challenge!

Finished shooting my project. My mother's birthday is coming up, so I decided to make the Story Telling Basics  project about her story as a proffessional artist. I'm already learning so much. I came home with 57 min. of raw footage! I know, crazy. It's a 1 min. project. But, most of the material was in the interviews.
