Night 1 of Northern Short Course Portfolio reviews almost done….
One room, 30 reviewers, 60 people, changing seats every 20 minutes.
This year’s PJ class doc had it’s first public viewing, lots of positive feedback.
Portfolio reviews that were not a scrum, even Will was bored!
odd night as my reviewers were split between two rooms.
Got to the Northern Short Course, not going to be a good week for the diet!
Day 2 of portfolio reviews. 28 reviewers saw 6 photographers = 168 portfolio reviews tonight!
My job at the Northern Short Course, organizing portfolio reviews. Louie Palu
Aristide Economopoulos review Becca Benson
Breakfast with my students and former student Allison – not sure why she was sad, she was the only one who didn’t drink.
The five hour drive home, the truck rolled over 278,000
After drinking more in 3 days than the past six months, I needed a ride to move more blood. Plus I was in a melancholy mood.
It’s not quite a Churchill Black Dog, but I think I had more fun this year at the NSC than in many years, I hung out with my current and past RCC students, saw a ton of former RIT students (including one from my first EVJ class), sat in on a few more sessions than normal and my job (portfolio reviews) went flawless and I was never stressed. I think my melancholy is more thinking about missed moments, with my career and relationships with people, or maybe I really can’t handle alcohol at all! (Diary mood off now!)
This is what the morning looks like after being up till almost 3am and back at work before 8am. I skipped the Pedailyte and stayed with Mountain Dew.
Keynote speaker David Burnett was delayed by the winter storm… I heard he got from the Olympics in Korea to New York faster than New York to DC : 0
A handmade sign said Virginia or Bust, he quipped, “You have no idea how close to bust it was” David Burnett as he entered the Northern Short Course
After the key note speaker is the awards dinner and photo booth, these are out student interns, a hard working group that we could not survive without!
Final day is a blur, but NPPA lawyer talks about drones and media
The day started with a fire alarm, what is worse for firefighters than showing up to a hotel filled with news photographers?
The lecture series, including Smiley Pool from the Dallas Morning News talking about covering the day the police department was ambushed during a BLM rally, on July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed a group of police officers, killing five officers and injuring nine others.
Then back to the portfolio room, NC represented! – Jill Knight
