Back in 2015, I had pleasure of seeing indie-rock band OK GO live at the Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix. It was my first live concert in the USA and to say that it was thoroughly awesome, is an understatement.

Why Should We Care About The Oscars?

Posted on Feb 12, 2016 10:32:57 AM by Jordan Wippell in art of film, in Blogs, in digital filmmaking, in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, in Digital Filmmaking Degree, in film production, in filmmaking, in award show, in Degree in Film Production, in Oscars, in The Academy

As I’ve gotten older I have started to become extremely jaded towards extravagant award shows, by this I mean the Oscars. What is supposed to be a celebration of cinema now seems like a bunch of celebrities patting each other on the back, all the while saturating themselves in vanity and ego. Sometimes I can’t help but feel they are missing the point… and I know others feel this way too.

From Australia to UAT: A Koala-ty Story

Posted on Jan 27, 2016 1:56:14 PM by Jordan Wippell in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, in Digital Filmmaking Degree, in Digital Video, in film festival, in film production, in filmmaker, in filmmaking, in international student, in movie screening, in movies, in Phoenix Film Festival, in technology college, in University of Advancing Technology, in college, in Degree in Film Production, in Film Production Schools, in Scholarship, in young filmmakers

It was a hot Australian summer’s day as I stood next to a large production camera that was pointed at a concerned police officer. I placed my face up to the eyepiece and made sure that the focus and exposure of the shot was still correct. The journalist next to me was asking a slew of questions about a possible arson when all of a sudden a vibration in my pocket broke my concentration. I stepped back and pulled out the phone. It buzzed in my hand and the small screen displayed an international number “Unknown.” Having been at the job for almost two years, I was confident that I could answer the call without any trouble. I stepped away from the camera and put the phone to my ear. I was soon greeted by a friendly voice that stated they were from the University of Advancing Technology and that congratulations were in order for winning the Digital Video Scholarship.
