Ello poppets! The name is Melissa, and to put it bluntly: I’m an avid lover of everything to do with film-making, travel, and photography. I have recently graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Telecommunications and Film, with a focus on Media Production, as well as a minor in Photography. I recently arrived back to Atlanta after living in Berlin for a few months working as an Aupair. It was a great experience and opportunity to explore a few more cultures. Now that I’m back, I am happy to say that I’m ready and excited to settle down in Atlanta and start my career. I am open to any ideas related to the blog as well as any opportunities to network. Basically, I just want to start off by introducing myself and giving a short summary about the purpose of this blog. First of all, there are a few things you need to know about me:
1). I love everything about film-making, photography and traveling. (I’m especially interested in anything to do with London, ever since I studied abroad there for a semester).
2). One of my life goals is to take part in the production of an independent film and then view it at a festival.
3). I have also been obsessed with penguins (I don’t know why) and Conan O’Brien for some time now (see below).
4). I’m afraid of feet…even my own. …yes. Ahem, anyway, enough about me.
So, why a blog? Well, to put it simply, I like to write about things I like. Now, was that simple enough? The things I like to write about the most are traveling, media production, and photography (with a strong liking for street art, the classy and respected kind, not graffiti on a wall). I will also feature posts about different organizations and ideas concerning things other than strictly media production. For example, I took a class on social media and believe it’s important to stay on top of it in today’s world, so basically, there may be a wide range of topics, but they will all be concerning communications, photography, and, of course, travel. Also, I have been emailed by other bloggers asking to write guest posts for the blog, so why not share the love?
So, that’s it in a nutshell. Enjoy, poppets! Also, any comments/questions/tomato/to-mah-to are welcome. Please hit “Follow” on the right side to receive updates about new posts as they’re written, and feel free to leave comments. P.S. see Conan and me below!
