My Cinematic Life, in a Nutshell

Alright, blog, you've waited long enough. I made a promise, and I'm going to keep it.
Are you ready?...
This is the part where I spill my guts and then tell you a little bit about myself.

On the other hand, let's just do the latter.

My name is Sarah Oren and I'm going to be a film editor. Goodness knows that we all have had our confusions about where we're going in life and what path is our "destiny." But who's to say that it hasn't been there under your nose the entire time? Since I was really young, I've been scrapbooking; family events, summer excursions, wild vacations, etc. This is the stuff of great albums. This brings me to my next point where I tell you how scrapbooking has affected my life. Through the painstaking hours spend cutting out paper and writing captions and glueing photos down, I've learned an invaluable skill about editing. I learned how to have patience with my creativity, how to make good artistic decisions, and how to present an appealing piece of work. I'm so thankful for my mother's frequent trips to AC Moore for scrapbook supplies, how could I have done without means for my craft?!

The next step in my ever-improving scrapbooking process? Movies. I began making video scrapbooks when I was of junior high school age, making fun simple Imovies (with my lovely Mac). I learned how much fun they were to create and how enjoyable they were to watch. I moved onto more elaborate projects, making short documentaries in high school, and often was able to utilize my video skills for class group projects. I've lost count of how many video scrapbooks and other movies I've made, but I'm sure the tally runs high. It is my passion, my hobby, my future. Upon admission to college, I put my moviemaking drive on the backburner and hoped that a run-of-the-mill Liberal Arts major would satisfy me. But it did not. Cinema is my passion, and to not spend my days working on that makes me feel empty. Looking back, I realize just how crucial those little scrapbooks were, for they guided me to where I'm at today: a future filmmaker.
