Pumkin Festival Keene, NH

Attended the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH tonight. There were over 25,ooo carved/decorated pumpkins on site. There were pumpkins everywhere! Had to shoot an assignment for school while I was there. Assignment was New England life. Things are moving really fast at school. We have two weeks until our first portfolio is due.

New York City

I rode the train for the first time on Sunday. We drove a couple of hours then took the train into NY. We walked around all day and had a great time. Upon arriving at Grand Central Station, a crew was filming "Friday Night Lights" and we got to walk through the set as the cameras were rolling. Who knows, we might be on TV?

We ate lunch at Grey's Papaya (hot dog place) and dinner at The Dumpling House.

I have been blessed to meet some wonderful people who have become my friends.

Week Five

We are now into week five. Mondays appear to be information overload day. We receive a tremendous amount of technical info all at once. We will apply this later in the week.

This is a picture of the court room in Northampton that we had access to. One of the employees allowed four of us to shoot in there last week. Yesterday, Mel Gibson was going to start filming a new movie in this same court room.

Festival of The Hills

Today I went to a local festival. This apparently was a tipical New England festival. There was food, crafts, duck race and skillet tossing. Yes, that's what it was! An event where the contestants throw a iron skillet. Whoever throws the longest distance wins! Here are a few of the photos I took today.

Mineral Rd.

Today I went back to Mineral Rd. for a few hours of shooting. I went there during the week to work on an assignment. There are two bridges that cross the river there. This is a picture of the river and one of the bridge. And a picture of Christina. She is the girl who I share the apartment with. I have just finished the first month here and only nine more to go! The school work is hard and everything moves really fast. But they only have ten months to teach us everything.
