Studio Works in Progress


Episode 20, in which we all make progress on our projects.

I was trying to make a large oval "button" out of a piece of oak salvaged from the railroad tracks, but ended up dropping and breaking my piece. Not to worry though, that's just wood telling me it wants to be a different shape. I salvaged the busted pieces and they will likely become some nice jewelry.

You have the most interesting people in your classes! Wow -- to go to school with actual adults, how different that would be.

I realized post-VTech shooting that the reason I don't teach university anymore is I was sick of dealing with the students' projects, which are mostly really violent and disturbing. Too much early 20-something / late-teen angst for me.

I hear that! And I agree.

When I teach TCM100 (Digital Multimedia) and students are in preproduction, I put restrictions on what they can do: no guns, no bathroom humor, nothing illegal, no violence. See if you can tell an original story.

It helps but someone always wants to slip in some violence.
