Final Week

The real young bishop

Next week is the final week of the Music Video workshop and we will be editing all the footage that we have filmed with the musician that we were paired up with, my group is working with rapper The Real Young Bishop. Maria Juranic, who taught the music video class, has been extremly helpful in this process and provided many great techniques that I can take away from the class and use in my filmmaking pursuits. This experience has been quiet educational and entertaining, and fueled my passion for filmmaking even more. To the end the workshop, we will be hosting a screening of the films on December 16th at 6 PM in the Lecture Room at the Walker Art Center. Come check it out.
