I spent a great deal of time in my youth admiring television shows and movies - from the thrilling stories and how the characters are written - to the visual effects that gave freedom to story telling by making a realistic creation of different environments using green screens. Originally, I enrolled in the Visual Communications program because of my interest in the video, audio and lightning courses. But after a few semesters of classes, I also learned how to effectively use After Effects and Cinema 4D. This is the area of work I hope to pursue. Not only has the Visual Communications program helped me learn the skills I sought out for, but I also discovered a new set of skills I can use that I originally didn't expect to obtain.
