This past Saturday, I only did a half day of YMP so I could still attend this other SXSW related program. Basically, we get into groups and are assigned a random prop and genre and have to plan, film, and edit a short movie in 24 hours. I was involved in this program last year, and absolutely loved it. However, this year during the screening (which was today) was much more satisfying. Feeling more confident in my film, I was more proud of presenting the film I worked on to an audience. Next year is my last year, so I have to make sure to remember the mistakes and lessons from this year to really do well. M.A.F.I.A. and YMP both contributed to making my spring break much more productive and active than it would have been otherwise.
