So, I'm looking to expand my storytelling into the cinematic realm and enroll in film school. But I have to build a visual portfolio first.
I've been experimenting with the holga film camera. Here are some of the photos I'm happiest with:
I named this group of photos my "Marci Series" after my friend, Marcial.
There's a bit of accidental double exposure happening but I still consider the photos to be very successful.
You can find the two models on Instagram @insolar and @bluedreamboi
Over the summer I got to publish a few pieces with an organization called Campus Clipper. I have combined all of these pieces together into one ebook that's free to download.
So if you want unrestrained access to my sage words of advice, download my ebook! It is called: Inner and Outer Worlds: Creativity, Mental Health, and Activism
Here is it's description: Do you want to know how to tap into the creativity all around you in order to enrich your life and boost your mental health? Do you want tips to balance your activism with your mental health? Do you need information on current public figures who balance their creative work with their political involvement? Or do you just want to know where to get a cup of coffee in a quiet, soothing, enriching NYC environment? Well then, read ahead!
It is available on Lulu website and a few other online bookstores. Follow the first link and you should get access no problem.
I got to collaborate with an incredible artist, Amy Young aka inksmuggler, on the cover art. I hope you enjoy the ebook and take a lot from it!
I recently graduated! I completed my undergraduate career at New York University in a program called Gallatin School of Interdisciplinary Studies. Essentially, I made my own major. For the last two years of my undergraduate career I had the utmost autonomy when it came to choosing classes and subjects that related to my created concentration: The Psychological and Social Causes and Effects of Storytelling.
The only requirement was that I had to defend what I had spent the last several semesters doing before an academic panel. I chose 20+ books, films, articles, etc that I felt represented my course of study and I wrote a 9 page paper about my academic journey. After this, I had an hour and a half discussion with this academic panel of professors in order to prove that I was familiar with all the material and that I had used my freedom and time well.
I worked very hard on the paper and the list and I've decided to share it here. It represents a long, illuminating journey for me. I am not the same person that entered NYU four years ago. I have learned so so much and grown so so much and I could not be more grateful. It is my privilege to have been able to spend so much time thinking about and examining what it is I am most passionate about: stories. I hope you can get something out of my final undergraduate project!!
Thanks for reading! <3
