My College Movies
May 30th, 2005 | View Post

When starting my university career back in 1997 at the University of Texas at Austin, my first major (of any real dedication) was film. More specifically RTF or Radio, Television, and Film. I kept on this path for about 2 years and inevitably wound up making a number of short films. In some cases the films were made for myself, in others they were made for class projects. If you would like to see some media saved from these films, please click on the links below.
