student television

A rough animation I did of Osmosis Jones breakdancing to Rappers Delight! This was really difficult to animate but so much fun! I’m going to revisit it some time in the future and actually draw in his features.

Me: oh, my exams are starting next week
Me: time to watch 12 tv series and read 4 books at the same time

Imagine an advanced Muggle studies class where the students learn about television and TV shows and it’s just them watching Dora the Explorer sometimes

Also the students thinking “Swiper no swiping” could be a spell

“You killed my sister, I forgive you”

In April 2014 Craig Scott (the brother of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim at Columbine), wrote a letter to Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, He wanted to forgive them, even if they killed his sister Rachel.

—————————————————————————————————-
“Eric and Dylan,
It’s been fifteen years since you came into our school armed to the teeth killing 13 people and wounding 24. In approaching the school, the first person you killed was my sister, Rachel Scott, she was 17. Before you killed her you asked her if she believed in God, she answered “yes” and you opened fire.
It was April 20th 1999, this year the anniversary falls on Easter Sunday where my family will celebrate our time together and honor our faith. If Rachel were here today she would be painting Easter eggs with our sisters and playing with our nieces and nephews.
She, at some point, would look me in the eyes and tell me to smile more and not take things too seriously.
She was an incredible teenager who has changed the lives of millions all by little things she did for others and the writings she left behind in her diaries. The truth about her is that she would have forgiven you for your hateful actions, so do I.

While many people around the world watched on television of students running out of the school, police approaching, and sobbing pupils. Before the camera crew arrived, I was in the library where you were slaughtering our classmates as if it were a game or movie you had watched again and again. At gunpoint you bullied and made fun of us. Crouching under a table remaining silent, I saw you shoot two of my best friends. The last thing Isaiah heard were racial slurs. You both left the library for a few minutes giving us a chance to escape. I yelled out at the students to escape with me and helped pick up a girl who had been shot. After escaping, you returned to the library and put an end to the massacre by taking your own lives.

That day my life changed forever. The next two years I carried a lot of hate and anger fantasizing on how I would have got revenge on you, had you been alive, and at times closed myself off in isolation. It was making me more like you. Then I decided to go on a mission to South Africa. It was one of Rachel’s dreams. There I met the man who enlightened me. 17 members of his family had been killed and despite the profound pain he spoke with me, he shared his story and did it with serenity. That day I understood that I had to break the chain of hate you started and the only way was to share with every one. I had to travel a long path to forgiveness to free myself from your shadows. Now not only do I feel free but I speak about a powerful story that rose out of the ashes - a message that my sister left behind. The biggest antidotes to anger and hatred are kindness and compassion. Your darkness gave light a chance to be seen.

A month before the shooting, you were in your parents’ basement pointing to a camera with a gun saying, “We need to get a f**king chain reaction going here.” At the same time, one month before, my sister was in her english class writing a paper about her values and beliefs, “I have a theory that if one person will go out of their way to show compassion it will start a chain reaction of the same.” Both of you spoke of a “chain reaction” but while yours ended with suicide, Rachel’s lives on with us as we share her story with millions of kids each year. My sister’s unfairly short life continues to have a huge impact on others.

I remember you. We met once when I was in 8th grade and you were in high school. Your presence instilled fear in me. We were at a mutual friend’s house and you were on the computer looking up plans to build a pipe bomb, little did I think that a couple years later I’d find myself under a table protecting myself against such a bomb. We even played basketball together, there you seemed like “normal people”.

There are those who say you started the slaughter because you were bullied and ostracized in our school. If I could go back to that day on the basketball court, I would talk to you, I would ask you why you acted the way you did and I would try to make you understand that it’s not all like it seems. I would tell you that the solitude you felt was the same that many others feel and that it all passes.

Eric and Dylan, what you did that day didn’t solve anything. You didn’t do justice with those guns, you stole the dreams and futures of 13 innocent people, like my sister Rachel. Today I forgive you because I know that hate only creates hate, and I cannot let you take away my smile, you’ve already taken my sister.“

The signs as pretentious film kids on a student film set

Aries: drives the van. asks the director if they can be the one to say “action.”
volunteers to carry the c-stands.

Taurus: makes suggestions to the art department but doesn’t help with the arting. chats up the DP about cameras. always into the crafty.

Gemini: already knows everyone on set. tries to make conversation with the DP as they’re lining up a shot. waits all day to yell, “martini shot!”

Cancer: volunteers their personal items as props. knows where the first aid kit is. gets flustered every time the AD hurries them.

Leo: yells, “quiet on set!” and then continues talking. fraternizes with the actors. keeps showing people their reel between takes.

Virgo: has the call sheet in their pocket at all times. forever on the lookout for continuity errors. always wants to get one more shot “for safety.”

Libra: flirts with the actors. says, “fix it in post,” every time something gets fucked up. flirts with the crew.

Scorpio: really into Chiaroscuro lighting. freaks out if no one is on fire watch. calls close ups “chokers.”

Sagittarius: weirdly into GoPro shots. insists upon sitting shotgun in the van. damages equipment trying to get a difficult shot.

Capricorn: shamelessly networks between takes. drops film lingo secretly hoping someone will ask them to explain. asks a PA to pour their coffee.

Aquarius: rude to the director, but nice to the PAs. wants to get experimental with it. smokes a million cigarettes.

Pisces: always asking to see frame and playback. whines when the shoot doesn’t wrap on time. is high.

Super Long AU Compilation

Here’s a really long list of a ton of the more simple/generic AU’s I’ve seen floating around. I made this list for personal reference and figured having so many all in one place might be helpful to others, too. I tried my best to alphabetize but I can’t promise it’s entirely correct. Hope you enjoy!
