    Serenity Now- Rhode Island Style


    Just wrapped up my last video assignment!!!!!!!! This is the “Serenity Now!” assignment (which is worth 3 stars). I chose to do this one because of the title. I judged an assignment by its title, and I’m not afraid to admit it. Seinfeld is quite possibly my favorite tv show …

    After hitting a whole bunch of stumbling blocks, I am done with my first video assignment!!! Wooooo!!!

    So I just watched Andy Rush’s “Fast, Cheap, and Under Control.” He was fantastically detailed and had an enormous amount of resources that seem to be super useful for video editing business. I was feverishly taking notes the entire time (because I’m a paranoid OCD freak who gets scared she …
