In summary, I spent New Year's Eve in the ER for my appendix. I had surgery slightly before midnight and I'm feeling 100% as of today.
It's that lovely time of year...Sundance! I'm updating topics on my RT Sundance group. Join in the conversation!
Wish me luck on my grad film school app...so much work to do before Feb 1!

Since my last post, I've dealt with two bouts of flu, and only God knows where I got it from. Aside from that, I've freed my Netflix queue from all class mandated films and am deeply excited to test some new films.
Grades are finally being reported as I finished my first semester at OCC a week ago. No surprise that I earned all A's in my film and culinary classes. Hopefully that helps when I apply to grad school.
Speaking of grad school, my fear of the GRE has caught up with me and I'm considering Chapman's Conservatory of Motion Pictures for Film Studies since my undergrad GPA exceeds their standard for reporting GRE scores. We'll see how that goes. I feel like I'm cheating my chances of USC by not taking the GRE. An old friend told me to get over it and apply so I don't regret it later.
Christmas time is here and I'm finding my Nintendo DS Lite much useful in getting away from my family and in occupying me after I've sent out a handful of job applications.
Suggestions for indie, comedy, and westerns will be greatly appreciated as I hope to not get sick a third time.
Merry Christmas and much love from sunny SoCal

This is my first post on my new RT blog, so forgive me for being a little late on the introduction.
I'm a recent graduate of Chapman University in Orange, CA, hailing from the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. Though my degree is in public relations, I have always maintained an interest in entertainment marketing and publicity.
I got my first taste of the industry through a travel course to the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2009. My favorite films of the festival include "Afghan Star," "It Might Get Loud," "Mary and Max," and the entire slate of shorts featured in the midnight Animation Spotlight.
This trip made me excited about film's endless possibilities.
The Sundance Bug affected me so much that I needed to try my hand at the festival circuit. A friend in the film school told me about an opening with Film Independent's LA Film Festival in June 2009. There, I had the opportunity to work with short film programmers, and got a taste of programming when weeding through countless submissions to our small office.
Here I am, still chugging and finding my way in the industry, jobless and a little hopeful.
I'm looking for work with a film studio/distributor, and am even considering training to be an agent.
My goal is to rack up enough experience, heartache, and laughter to make for a good portfolio to teach high school or college film classes.
I'm considering USC's School of Cinema Arts to get my Master's in Critical Studies, and hope I can get there and make a great impression.
I don't know how I will structure this blog, but I plan on regurgitating industry news I find most interesting, and making note of films I am excited about.
Best of luck to me and the quest I am undertaking.
