I started the Digital Media Production class offered at my high school recently, and since then I have had a growing interest in filmmaking. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this artistic craft. I am lucky to have a chance to be a part of the NB Film Co-op through the Fredericton High School co-op program.
I think that my interest started a while back when I was at a birthday party, and we were all given disposable cameras. It was the best thing that had ever happened to me; this new artistic direction. After the fast food challenge (not eating fast food for a year), I was given one hundred dollars, and I bought my first camera that night. I was so proud of myself, and I took that digital camera everywhere with me taking photos of everything, and my sister and I would create short films with our toys. Then, disaster struck a few years when I dropped my camera down a flight of stairs, and I was unable to get a new one. I was able to get another camera a few years later with the money given to me by the homeschool program that I was a part off. I was so excited that I purchased a camera that allowed you to use different lenses with it but I didn't realize at the time that I would have to buy them which is expensive.
Then, there was a time-period that I didn't do as much shooting and got away from it.
Going to the Digital Media Production class recently gave me a chance to rekindle my passion for photography, and it opened my eyes to the world of filmmaking also.
