“Snow!” my friend shouted, looking incredulously at the small patch of white on the ground. I climbed up the last few rocks into the clearing right behind him and for a moment I was overcome with surprise and excitement at finding snow in, of all places, the Mojave Desert. I looked up and realized we had crested yet another false summit and that there was no way of knowing how far it was to the top. Even so, having come...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay

Creating and telling stories is something I’ve been doing all my life, whether consciously or not. From the adventure based games I used to play running around with my friends as a kid, to the more intentional stories in films. I’ve been involved with some form of music for all my life. As a kid I was banging on drumsets, now I play bass and regularly play in recitals and shows. I’ve also been experimenting with technology...

“How would you like to go to France for two weeks to film and play music?” I was talking to one of my mentors, Aidan, and he was telling me about a trip that was being planned for the summer. Aidan also told me he wanted to document the trip, and that he wanted my friend Jonah and me to film it.

I shook my head as I tried to stay awake. It seemed like hours...

The TV show Person Of Interest has some of the most interesting and connected characters and storylines I’ve ever seen. No detail is irrelevant, even if it seems unimportant it will reappear later as part of a much bigger plot or idea.

The depth of the characters and...

How I chose schools to apply to
254 Words
I chose schools based on their film program as the main factor. I also looked at how easy it was to be involved in things outside of your major, since I have other interests that I don't want to give up. I visited many of the schools I looked at online, which for me was very important. You don't know how a school will work for you until you've been there. For example, I did a...
