After several years developing skills such as ordering, taking stock, and supplying needs to different departments in a fast paced working environment, I decided it was time for me to enhance my skills with the intent to start a career in something I would enjoy. An emerging field dealing with both film and images, it was the optimal choice for my creative interests to be fulfilled. After finishing my Associates degree of Applied Sciences Multimedia, I felt that adequate training in the arts was lacking due to an emphasis in computer programs. I am now working towards a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design.

I studied for a year and a half working toward a certificate in Film and Video. We used Super 8 video cameras and VCR decks for editing. I have completed a Video Production class, Two Video Editing classes, and a Scriptwriting class; previous to quitting this institution.


I have created my final animation project for the Associates Multimedia. For the video, I had created a computer generated environment with which to display moving animations, videos, screenshots, and still artwork I created in my art and multimedia classes. I have also created animation to support and add humor to the interview video assignment starring my daughter.
