For our majors, and most importantly our careers, we need references to back up the information we put out into the internet. In INF103, we were taught how to take references from the internet, and how to properly convert then into APA formats. This skillset is displayed below, as I rounded up 5 APA bibliographies about my field of study, and my career.

All of my sources were academic and reputable, however the ones found in the library sources were not always relevant to the subject of cinema — but more as media as a whole.
Before I am a film student, and before I am a media curator, I am just a woman who desires justice and equality for all. That is the bottom line to what pushes me through my art, and various walks of life.
In 1998 I was born in Hollywood, Florida, but quickly moved back to Cupey, Puerto Rico after my family found it best to stay together in my mother’s home island. I come from both a Brazilian and Puerto Rican background, so naturally I was attracted to vivid colors, loud music, and warm weather. However, I did not know how helpful these diverse attributes would take me in the creative field I am in.
Currently I find myself climbing up the artistic ladder, with my various collaborations from fashion photography to music videos, and without the background I come from, I don’t believe the vision I obtained could have took me very far.

Many film majors before the Internet took over will tell you the long and hard process they’ve had to undergo their time studying production. Especially before the digital era took place of having to manually having to shoot, produce, and cut film. Pre-milennial filmmakers were looked upon more as artists than just media makers, and the thought and process that went into films just seemed to be more of a commitment due to the higher cost of production. Nowadays, low-budget films are drastically more doable — and that is all thanks to millennial age technology and the Internet. Unfortunately for millennials, the competition has rose drastically.
More films are being recorded on various video recording cameras, and some even shot on Smartphones. Although this brings more opportunity for the Average Joe to indulge in filmmaking, we must not forget what these milennials learned from growing up in a digital age. Content quality over quantity. Being twenty years old, most of the films that taught me the basics of visual storytelling.
