Purified Sands I heard a great explosions Across the Long Island sound If we can't stop these wars in time We won't be around I hear children's laughter It's so playfully sweet Without them to guide our hearts We will be incomplete Let's emerge on anger in water And dissolve them once more I can hear our Maker crying As his tears pours We can be stronger...

My name is Daniel, I play in a band and love writing songs. I've written a lot of songs and have gotten nothing but positive reviews. The way I like to write is to shy away from your generic love/break up song. I want to write new, exciting stuff. I also like to stay away from swearing as I believe that a swear is only used when the writer simply cannot come up with a decent word. I also like to film and edit videos, but at this stage I am only competant.

Rachel Anft 2210 Breeze Court, Odenton, Maryland 21113 443-841-9789/ Rachel.Anft@gmail.com Summary I am a 21-year-old senior at Towson University, in Odenton, Md, where I am earning my BA in Film Studies. Since transferring to Towson last year, I have become a founding member of an independent film company along with two of my friends. We are currently working on our first project, a web series called: Bait and Switch. I'm producing, directing, writing, and acting in the series, chipping in on cinematography duties as needed. We have come together as a team to make this project a reality, utilizing lots of communication and teamwork--facets of production that I am particularly fond of. I have been advertising this web series on numerous social networking sites, including Facebook, tumblr, and deviantart. I also post in forums and link them to our YouTube channel. That channel also contains side projects such as Baits Blogs pointing out that the character Bait is a comic book fan herself. Before attending Towson University, I went to Minnesota State University-Moorhead, making 16mm films on the Bolex and the Ariflex. As I wrote, produced, directed, and edited scenes for final projects, I also became well-acquainted with digital techniques. These projects included: The Navigatrix, A scene from John Fowles: The Collector, Asylum (done on 16mm). I also helped several other students make films. While studying in Minnesota, I was hired by a company called Specialty Commodities in Fargo, North Dakota to serve as cinematographer and producer for a web-based cooking show, a position I held for 18 months. As a dramatic arts student at Carver Center Technical and Vocational High School (also in Towson, Md.), I acted in several plays and spent a summer interning for the video business run by Ed Rheal, a prominent Baltimore producer. I seek out filmmaking opportunities that offer me the chance to develop my passion for good work and be creative within a team of good people. Film Highlights • Producing - Strong Communication Skills • Film Editing -Strong creative vision • Digital Film Editing -Team player • Adobe Photoshop Skills -Outgoing • Screenwriting -Determined • Adobe premiere editing software -Always willing to go the extra mile • Cinematography Skills • Understanding of lighting • Directing • Costuming • Some Final Cut experience Accomplishments Raised money in donations on IndieGoGo to fund my up and coming web series: Bait and Switch. I advertised the web series in order to get fans before it comes out via tumblr, Facebook, and deviantart. I created other side projects such as blogs and a mini-series in order to promote Bait and Switch. Produced and acted in several 48-hour film festivals.I produced a Web cooking show from Fargo, N.D.

Kristin Paul * Amaya | Artist * Hobbyist * Digital Art * Traditional Art | Louisiana, United States I started showing off my work publicly in 2006, but now as times have changed, I am spreading out to Facebook. My elementary art teacher, Ms. Denley, as well as my high school art teacher, Ms. Campbell, have both played a huge part of my talents and creative skills. I started with traditional painting with acrylics and watercolors, using sharpies and crafting into my canvas with layers of pop-up art as I went on. I fell in love with Photoshop CS and my Wacom tablet, and since then I've done hundreds of digital art works as well as both interior and exterior murals. Through all the hardships and hate that I have dealt with these past several years, my art is the only thing that kept me alive and warm. I hope to keep trying new things and add more to this list.
