During my studies my primary focus was to consider how we, as humans, interact with one another and our culture. Many would agree that our thought is increasingly individualized. We have become so focused on building ourselves up, that we forget about those around us. For many, this is not a conscious choice, but an uncomfortable expectation.
As a part of acquiring my degree, I completed an undergraduate thesis project, which was comprised of a 26-minute documentary film and 40 page research report. Using the former Talon Zipper Company as a case study, I explored how small town America has changed overtime. Along the way I learned a great deal about manufacturing, unemployment, and the how industry can create community.
I believe no meaningful social change will occur unless we look outward, and have come to see media as a key strategy for initiating that change.
