If you are like me, THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS WHERE WE COME ALIVE!! Sorry, I’m just very excited. But Christmas and the […]

DJ: Coffeeshop Soundtrack for Studying

At the end of last semester, I gave you my ultimate playlist for “Study Dance Breaks” which I still think are the key to surviving finals. However, I know that you can’t always jam out while trying to get through the dozens of pages of reading you put off until this week. To help get […]

Tyler: How My Thanksgiving Meal Represents My Last Semester At BU

The proverbial “meat and potatoes” represent my classes and my job — the two things I’ll overwhelm myself with most.

Kevin: The Power of Pre-Production

I’m taking Production 1 this semester and after many reshoots and late night editing sessions, I finally had to admit to myself that I needed to spend more time on pre-production. Before Prod 1 I had never tried to make a movie all on my own, but I figured I had an idea in my […]

Deep within the depths of the COM building (in the basement), there is a vast, magical place just waiting for you to utilize all it has to offer.
