Year 2 of the Bachelor of Communication (Media) kicks off with a bang, blowing the dust off media factory and busting out the blogging. I will predominantly be using this blog for work associated with the class: Online Video Experiments. However, amongst that content you will be sure to find other relevantĀ and no doubt extremely un-relevant content acquired from, as well as inspired from the media world.

To Formally Introduce Myself

To formally introduce myself, my name is Nethaniel Rochester and I am a first year media student at RMIT University in Melbourne. As a career preference, I am leaning towards film-making and in particular I would love to become a film editor. I have a passion for creating engaging short films and videos. In a world centred around social media and the internet, a personal blog site constructed around my education in media would be an ideal medium to bounce ideas off peers and members of the world wide web in order to further ignite my passion for the media industry. However, believe it or not, I have never until now posted a blog entry and aside from very irregular visits to Facebook and YouTube, I am otherwise unknown to the world of social media. I am excited about this blogging process and from reading Adrian Miles’ ideas about the effectiveness of blogging as a method of teaching and learning, I can see that I have a lot to look forward to as I begin to create and control my online persona.
