Actually that is my story, and he just pretends that he did it, he also sometimes says he "went to 110 Brewer games last season" if he is in your class, call him out.

1. Kyle Jenkins

2. Nah, Kyle is as good a name as any. If you can think of something else that is cool too.

3. I have experience on PC’s and Mac’s. I have used all OS listed above.

4. I have a Canon ZR 80. It only allows capture of sound from an on board mic so I won’t be using it for this project. I have been capturing still and moving images for well over six years. I started in High School doing documentaries and skits and moved on to film school three years ago.

5. I mainly use Final Cut but I have used Adobe Premiere, Quicktime, iMovie, and Windows Media.

6. I’ve been working with sound (processing and recording) since I started doing interviews in High School for documentaries. I’ve used it in every production since then.

7. M. Night Shyamalan before Signs, Akira Kurosawa, Sergio Leone, and Chritopher Nolan

8. Unbreakable, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Seven Samurai, Memento, Batman Begins

9. My friend Andrew Sicari from high school influenced me a lot and also influenced the films I like. I’m a visual thinker and learner and this is a visual field of study. It fits perfectly.

10. Writing and Directing

11. I like to write and space out. Those are two of my favorite hobbies.

I’m not the same person I was five seconds ago. I feel much older now.
