Film major at le Fitchburg State University
I run the horse racing blog The Galloping Hat Rack
Future documentary filmmaker
I post photos of my dog a lot sorry not sorry
My poor car is acting up again. She turned on then shut off when I was trying to leave school earlier today, so I had my dad come down and we had to have her towed to the shop to see what was up. It looked like a battery issue, but the battery is only 4 months old and she started right up for the mechanic so we’re all scratching our heads. CAMMY GODDAMMIT STOP IT.
I would really like her to last me through another year, or at the very least the summer…
jumpinglines said: Ew that’s stupid. But also it’s Fitchburg, I can’t say I’d expect them to see/recognize the difficulty of working with and photographing live animals (that’re kind of assholes sometimes), as compared to, you know, that leaf rolling by…
Yeah true. I’m 90% sure that all or a major part of the judging system they use for it is heavily biased, ya know, teachers’ favorites and what not. I got very little recognition for my last really ambitious project that involved out-of-state travel for 2 days, so on that note I’m glad I didn’t invest too much time into prepping entries.
On a brighter note, I was relieved to hear my advanced doc project “Roughshod” is getting some attention from the entire film/video department, both faculty and students, and it’s about horses. I’m sad I don’t live on campus so I can’t be there to soak it all in, especially because Fitchburg’s program is heavily into cinema, not non-fiction. Thanks again for the sympathy :P
