“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 4

“Fresh eyes” is the name of this past week. I stepped away from the editing station to shake off any tunnel vision I might have had during this process (after some great advice from my brother in arms, Princeton), it’s served me good because I immediately was able to point out spots in the doc...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 2

The past 2 months have been intense, to say the least, I was pulling 14-16 hour days editing our documentary, I had a deadline set and I was determined to make it.

Teaching at the New Immigrant and Refugee Visions Project

On a previous blog entry, I rambled on about how much I love teaching, how I missed it and how the sharing of knowledge is very dear and close to my heart. I have to be honest here, I’ve been aching to find the time and the right place to get in there again and...

In the bedroom: a behind the scenes
