One of the greatest memories I have had throughout college is the creation of videos, especially during my freshman year of college.
First things first, with only a month and a half of getting to know one another: me, Howard, John Torres, Brett, Victor, Leandro, Victor, Ryan, & Austin (SUITE 400) made one of the most epic videos for Staecy Kim’s birthday. The best part about bringing the video surprise over to their apartment and showing it to them was that we gained the trust of our neighbor suite (suite 408): After THIS presentation, our friendships deepened as we hung out more and more.
That was fun. Months later, after we solidified the bonds with the girls next door (namely Leah, Brittney, Yesenia, Alexis, Katherine, Adela, Jordan, Staecy, Esmeralda, Michelle Song) we created another video for the same day of Secret Santa (namely for Brittney, Leah, and Michelle’s birthday which were all around the same week). We had a wonderful lunch at Canyon Vista (BLEH!), before opening up our appropriate Secret Santa gifts. Those memories at CV will long be remembered by everyone.
After exchanging gifts, it was time for the video presentation. All us guys pretended to be “the girls” in the video, and appropriately enough this is the end result:
While that was nearly 30 minutes, the end result of my last video of the year would be roughly 70 minutes, and it was done for Stacey Hunsucker. As our Resident Advisor, Stacey provided us with all the necessities we needed to survive freshman year: i.e. looking the other way, making crapes for us, and fighting against the oppressive Jennifer Klage. We thanked her by making one of the longest videos EVER (with paradigm shifts and all).
And then in my Junior Year, I made this for my Communications class (which intertwines 24 with Still Frame PICTURES!) (Thanks to Henry, Jessica, Adam, Michelle, Tyler, & Alex)
