    So many of us have had this day marked on our calendars: the day we’d finish the shoot. We were looking forward to finally getting through this phase – but now that it’s arrived, we’re going to miss doing it. (Isn’t that always the case?) This shoot was by turns exciting, frustrating, educational, exhausting and rewarding. Among [...]

    Many of you may not recognize the quote above, which is why I’m petitioning Norman to make an intimate knowledge of the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic Back to School a prerequisite for this course. He’s not listening of course, but that movie is in my head because my friends and I would try to watch [...]

    Summer is here, and we wish that Norman had made this class go straight through for four semesters, so we can just get this thing over with and start paying off our loans, already. I’ve actually got mixed feelings on the break – on the one hand, it’s nice to step away from something that’s [...]
