Hello friends.

by debmlong

Hi all-

This is Deborah. I am from Brooklyn, NY (by way of Columbia, South Carolina and Philadelphia, PA).

 I graduated from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA in 2007, with a BFA in Writing for Film and TV.

I started my MA in Media Studies with The New School in 2009 because I wanted to expand upon and continue to explore some of the things I only scratched the surface of in undergraduate school. When I started here, I thought I’d be more interested in theory, but I realized that I have gained the most out of some of the production work I’ve done-simply going through the entire process of producing a short narrative (albeit for a class) was one of the single most gratifying experiences I’ve had in a long time. I’ve learned, essentially, that I learn best, in any scenario, when I am actually, physically, doing something, and I think this is true for most of us.

I’d like to use this course as a way to further investigate and develop the ways in which one can share an experience and make it purposeful as an experience to share with others-how to create a learning experience, or space, out of a specific idea or event.

I want to try and put some of my ideas in the context of not simply “I want to do this,” but “Why do I want to do this, and how do I go about sharing this with other people in a way that is meaningful.”

I’ve been reading through some of the other bios, and I am truly excited to be in this class with the rest of you, and I look forward to learning from all of you.
