The other lawn chair was for my feet.

I got sooo many mosquito bites.

I'm a web designer, both with the design aspect and the coding part. I also work with video production, both for commercials and with short films I write/direct/act in.

Hmmm... also do a lot of photography.

And, I'm a potential MFA candidate for creative writing, and I do that on a yellow notepad but the finished versions are always typed up on my powerbook. :)

I mess around with Corel Painter alot. In the last year i've started making a few stop motion animations using action figures from my childhood. My most recent one is demo for an episode of 24 and before that i made a short james bond jr movie.

Web Design via TextEdit, Safari, FireFox, IE, Netscape, Terminal
Computer Programming via XCode, Terminal, TextEdit
Music Composition via Allegro, Sibelius
Image Editing via ColorIt!, Photoshop
Graphic Design via ColorIt!, Photoshop, Illustrator
Game Design (sort of) via Forge, Anvil, Marathon

Nothing too overly advanced. I get a little bit of pay sometimes for web design, but nothing else as of yet (hopefully in the near future though).

I edit short videos with Final Cut Pro 5 (less than 30 minutes long) and do a lot of photography work with Adobe Photoshop CS...I don't get paid for either, but that's my creative outlet. I usually edit on a dual proc 2.3ghz G5 and do my photoshop work on my iBook G4. :)

Yes I think their plan has worked ... :rolleyes:

This random avatar changing business is messing with my brain.

Nothing much creative on my Mac. Some well written notes .. and that's about it!

That's most beneficial thing I got out of my composition class. ;)
Also, be sure to include a very detailed definition of any word that you wouldn't use in everyday dialogue, a dialogue being a conversation between two or more people as a feature of a book, play, or movie or to take part in a conversation or discussion to resolve a problem.

Lets see... I've done some work in InDesign helping a graphic designer... Made a movie with my friends for religion class, edit photos, I want to be a photographer or graphic designer, that would be really fun. :)
