When I started SCAD in September I was excited, nervous and quickly overwhelmed.  Going to school full time is a heavy load — doing it while working full time and playing the roles of wife and mother seemed like totally insanity by mid September.

But there is a huge difference between being committed and being committed…

I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity – not only have I discovered something I am truly passionate about but I’ve spent the year with like-minded, gifted and talented individuals.

This Spring quarter I had a professor that produced Fried Green Tomatoes


and The Breakfast Club

- two films that pretty much shaped my life.  So that kind of thing happens here!

I’ve had professors that have pulled incredible pieces of art and writing out of me – pieces I just wouldn’t have been able to do without their attention or advice.

This was one of my favorites:


In this drawing class I learned how to use cool and warm tones to my advantage.  An idea I explored in my last film for my lighting and field class.  Everything I do is so interrelated and I’m finding my interests and ideas finding a place to merge in the moving pictures realm.

I’ve got so much more to learn but it’s fun to start to use my new skills to help Jefferson promote his music.  His songs inspire so many ideas for narratives, but for now he wants a few videos that showcase a sound and look similar to his house concerts.

This is a new one…

This was a fun and crazy challenge that I did with Kate and am so grateful for Cory Carpenter for taking my random un-sync’d footage and putting it together for us.  Yet another advantage to being in school — I’m never alone.  I’m surrounded by an incredible resource of talent willing to help.

This has been a GREAT year!!!

Peace in,
