My name is Loren Starr and I will be a senior at Longwood University in the 2011-2012 academic year. I have experience with filming, editing, and writing news. I have created VO's, VO-SOT's, and news PKG's using such programs as; Final Cut Express and Garage Band. I also have experience with Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver creating newspaper layouts and websites. I know I still have so much more to learn, but the difference between others and I is my determination, adaptibilty, and the love to remain contemporary to learn and understand new matieral and programs. I'm a very hard-working individual, who is willing to put in the overtime. I have one down side, I'm a perfectionist. I feel if your name is going on something or if one is representing a company, it deserves nothing but perfection. I stop at nothing til I achieve this.
