Caution!: A zombie classic

Screen capture from Caution: A zombie classic.

Welcome to my work from freshman year also known as Spring 2011 Cinema Production 1 taught by Joshua Bonnetta.

This semester was filled with exciting times of film just two years ago as this was shot on 16mm and my photo project that semester was shot on 4×5. So, as I prepare to release snippets of my Thesis Cinema Production I felt it would be a good idea to throw up my original project. One of many ambitions that unfortunately fell a bit short. But, it still didn’t turn out too terribly. Hope you enjoy it as it is still entertaining. Thanks

Rally coverage down in DC

Forward on Climate

This past weekend was the Forward on Climate rally in Washington D.C. I was fortunate enough to cover it for The Ithacan. So, myself and a staff of 4 other reporters, photographers and videographers headed to D.C. to check it out. It was a great time, here are some quick shots.

Professors share narratives of lifelong activism

Fred Wilcox shares his activism stories.
Shawn Steiner/The Ithacan

Here at Ithaca College there is a large group of professors who stand by their beliefs and ideals. These professors are activists and constantly go out and protest and do work in order to make these ideas known and to fight injustice. As a part of a collegiate institution they share their beliefs with their students and try to be the inspiration for them to get out and fight for what they belief in.

This project was made in collaboration with Kelsey O’Connor, editor in chief of The Ithacan.

In addition, here is the original article written by Kristen Mansfield.

The 54th annual Cortaca Jug football game was held on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012. The Ithaca College Bombers lost to the SUNY-Cortland Red Dragons 16-10. This is my account from the sidelines. And as I am from Ithaca College, it was the Bomber side of things.

This is part of a new policy implemented by Ithaca College president Tom Rochon. All student media must contact Maley to set up interviews with upper level faculty and administrators. The campus community has responded very strongly to this new policy, including a letter urging repeal from about 70 faculty members as of Friday, Oct. 5, 2012.
