The Tears and Joys of Filmmaking

I got the worst farmer’s tan. My meals consist of donuts, fast food, and caffeinated drinks. My wallet is nearly empty. A day never goes by without arguing with one of my crew members. I guess the film industry is not as glamorous as it seems? Well, frankly, I DON’T CARE. Nothing brings me more[…]

Interviewing Tips

Senior Thesis: Interracial and Interfaith Dating. Thoughts?

By Jeremy Fishman Hey ya’ll. My apologies for not writing last month. I’ve been extremely busy working on my Senior Thesis, a full length play exploring the nature of intermarriage, its effect on individuals, and ultimately how it challenges the nature of identity and cultural “fact.” Any of your thoughts/personal anecdotes on the subject would[…]
