Creating this film with my team has not been as stressful as I thought it was going to be, but the process still contains stress by its very nature. This video project was assigned during a round of testing and other projects, so it has not been easy scheduling a time for everyone to meet. I am, however, happy with the type of movie we are making. Our short film follows the style of the TV show The Office. I hope to have a very clean looking film by the end of this project because I am the one who will be filming and editing the movie with the help of the others of course.
I hope that we will make whoever watches our film laugh, and hopefully learn something along the way. We are trying to get the message across that it is ok to not feel one hundred percent independent when you get to college, but you still have to attempt to do well in your classes or else you will never amount to anything. We are also trying to get across the message that if your parents force you to do something that you don’t enjoy, talk to them about it because most parents would much rather you be happy and pursuing your own dream than unhappy but following their dreams for you.
Luckily for me, I think that my parents did a great job raising me to be independent, so much so that if they don’t let me be independent I get upset because I feel like I can be. They would probably be upset if I wanted to get a major in something that isn’t marketable, but I am happy doing Computer Science. In my personal opinion, you do have to give up on your ideal dream just a little bit because ideals don’t work in the real world. You have to have a tangible method on how to actually achieve those dreams.
