How much sleep do you get every night?

According to fitness and wellness, we know that 8-10 hours is best so we try to get our full sleep. But with studying, sometimes we only get 7 🙂

What things do you do to stay healthy?

We get plenty of rest, drink lots of fluids, stick to healthy foods and exercise a little every day. We know it’s important to stay on top of both our fitness and nutrition. What about you, what do you do to stay healthy?

Find a Job Fast

Let’s face it; most of us have a tough time asking someone for help.  We feel like we need to “go it alone,” rather than, except that others may have more skill in a particular area.  Looking for a job, or even an internship, in today’s economy requires a tactical, creative, diverse and collaborative strategic approach.  Granted, it should not be “What can you do for me?” but rather, “Can you assist me in achieving my career objective?”

Here are some of my thoughts: Continue reading

Screenplay Search

Are you looking for your big break? This summer, you can have the movie you scripted come to life with the help of other Glendale Community College students.

GCC’s Theatre and Video Production Technology departments have teamed up to produce at least two student-written screenplays. The screenplays will be produced with film acting student actors by the video production advanced directing class.

In order to have your screenplay considered, follow these guidelines:

1. Scripts must be submitted before the end of Spring Semester and may come from any interested student.

2. Scripts must be submitted in Film Format.

3. Scripts should be from 10-20 pages and they must tell a complete story.

4. The script would be best with no more than two leads and several supporting roles that can be played by either sex.

5. Limit locations, one is best. For example: in and around a house or the school stadium.

6. Content should be acceptable to the administration, suitable for YouTube, and MCTV – meaning PG-13 in relation to sexual issues, R-for language (though PG-13 would be best). Graphic or gratuitous violence is not recommended.

7. Scripts should be submitted with a cover page with the writer’s contact information. Judgment of the scripts will be blind, so the header on the script itself should contain only the title and page number. Scripts with identifying information will not be submitted for consideration.

8. Final selection will be made before start of summer classes. If nothing suitable is submitted, we will shoot something selected by the staff.

Scripts should be emailed in Microsoft Word format to David Seitz david.seitz@gcmail.maricopa.edu or James Brandt brandtmedia@yahoo.com.

Registering for the following classes is not required, but you may want to consider it for the full production experience!

VPT206 – Producing & Directing

Glendale Community College: Online or on campus?

Which style of class do you prefer, online classes or actually being in the classroom? Are you thinking of switching classroom mediums this semester or is your class only offered in a format you’ve never tried? Well, I’ve taken both and there are definitely a great deal of pros and cons to both types.

I started college taking online classes. I chose to do online because it was cheaper than at a university where I would have had to pay hundreds of dollars for parking. At Glendale Community College, we are lucky enough to have free parking! Continue reading
