Today, I got a chance to borrow my roommate’s Canon 5Dii in order to shoot my video art exploration. The exploration was rather simple, I simply had to create a 3 minute, silent film on the subject of inside/outside. I had the concept mapped out in my head, and with the help of my friend Bryce, I was able to film and edit the video all in one day. What you see below is a rough cut of the film. This is an assignment that was given in order to familiarize the class with shooting, composition, etc. It was not allowed to be edited in any form, aside from choosing the organization of the clips we shot.

I’m sharing this mostly to note and appreciate the clarity of HD video in a DSLR camera. As a multimedia journalist, this ability is very valuable for me and I look forward to Nikon’s Full Frame video DSLR offering in the near future. Any and all comments are appreciated.
When you take a group of college students, introduce them to a full-contact sport with a rich culture and social tradition; the result is a band of brothers who will grow together in skill and camaraderie to the point of traveling across the ocean to broaden their horizons and engage new opponents. That might not happen all of the time, but the events above summarize the most recent iteration of the Willamette Rugby Football Club, or WRFC, which came about four years ago, when senior Stephen Scott arrived at Willamette with the goal of persuing his love of rugby that began in high school. The WRFC has grown tremendously in the past four years, with one of the season highlights being the opening game between the current WRFC and its alumni, known as “Old Boys.” This year’s game took place this past weekend at McCulloch Stadium and brought smiles and laughter to all those in attendance.
Facebook.com is a Web site that, according to its homepage, “helps you connect and share with the people in your life.” It is also translated into over 50 languages and is viewed by 120 million unique visitors daily, a number which is close to the 140 million visitors that Google averages according to Alexa Internet. While the first two items sound pretty promising, the fact that more people are on Facebook than ever before has resulted in a number of possible consequences for its users, including decreased privacy and more attention to what appears on one’s profile. Last night might have been a lot of fun, but showcasing your new temporary tattoos is not always the best way to let others know.
