Editing daily

The editors of The Sonosopher are working every day. There are some arguments as to who sits in which chair most often, but otherwise, they are often in agreement.

Finals Week

After finals week, we will have more news about the progress on the film, The Sonosopher. Please stand by.

Translating and Screening Plans for Italy

The clip we showed at the Integrated Studies Open House and Outstanding Thesis Awards is currently being translated into Italian, by Alex.

This is a 7-minute section...and will be sent to the University of Catania so the people at the university can view and and approve a screening in the summer, and so that Alex can screen it there in August, in conjunction with a performance that he's going to be doing there.

By August (when Alex screens it) we'll hopefully have it professionally translated into Italian
this year.

At the Integrated Studies Open House, Presentation

Travis Low and Torben Bernhard were among four students selected from the 700 graduates of the Integrated Studies program at UVU, chosen to present at the Integrated Studies Open House and Outstanding Thesis Awards on April 20, 2009.

They explained the selection of their senior thesis, The Sonosopher, treating us with a 7 minute clip. About the film clip, let me just say,I forgot I was watching a film. I had seen some of this footage before, but it was more engrossing in this new format. I'm really looking forward to the next screening.

Morale is High

I have been impressed by the editing process and collaboration between The Sonosopher Crew. On Monday, I witnessed Torben and Travis high-five over agreeing on the arrangement and cutting of footage. They told me not to post it, but I thought it really shows that morale is high in the Sonosopher camp.
