Reflection

When we were assigned this project I was a bit panicked. For one I didn’t have much free time even to spare for an interview. I got Nashs number and we proceeded numerous times to set a time and place to meet. Till at last, the day of we met before our first class sessions. Anxious and nervous to complete the assignment we proceeded with our interviews in a sort of circular seating art design. From the interview i learned that Nash was actually from the capital of his country, and was overall just like me. New to college life, the people and the work. Afterwards I had taken forever to upload the video so in turn Matthew Kruczowy helped me upload it to both youtube and the class blog. This I thought was a great opening exercise that contributed to both class, English 110 and our Film class. Encompassing our skills in question writing, reporting, acting and recording.
