    Hi, everyone.

    I haven't posted a whole lot lately (in fact, I've never posted much in the After Hours lounge) because I've been in the process of moving from North Texas to Southern California. Today was my first day attending classes at the graduate film school at Chapman University in Orange, where I'm pursuing a MFA in Film Production with an emphasis in editing.

    I hope to start up a blog soon, where I'll post journal entries about the life of a film student, and I thought some of the folks here might be interested in that. I'll post the address as soon as I get it up and running.

    Anyway, this is a big step for me; it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time. My ultimate goal is still directing, but I'm happy to get there by editing. The program here at Chapman is actually very good in that it gives the students a broad overview of the various filmmaking disciplines before they start focusing on their chosen discipline. In fact, my first choice was directing, but like I said, I'm happy to edit if that's what is to be. (Besides plenty of editors have gone on to become successful directors.)

    The faculty here is amazing; it includes director John Badham, writer/director David S. Ward, editor Paul Seydor, cinematographer Bill Dill, production designer Larry Paull, and plenty of other industry professionals.

    At any rate, I'll try to write about some of the various goings-on here, and again, I'll certainly get my blog address posted when I get it going. We'll see what happens, I guess.

    Chapman has a very good film program that will get better. I hope you're enjoying living around there.

    It's an adjustment, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. The school does indeed have a very good and growing film program.

    Hey, everyone, sorry it's been a while since I posted in this thread. Been a busy few months, but I have finally set up a site at Xanga here, if anyone is interested.
