As a journalism student I was bound to have to take a class on film, graphic design and video at some point during my college career. Needless to say, I have been putting it off. I am not comfortable behind a camera lens. This semester however, I learned that I could be.

My final project for my Journalism J210 class was to research, film and edit together a three minute video on a subject of your choice. For weeks I struggled choosing a topic until one night when it hit me.

I was reading the paper and there was a short column about a woman who lived in Martinsville IN (just outside Bloomington) who ran a rescue for, get this, ferrets.

I was intrigued. So I looked a little further.

I called her that night and set up an interview for a few days later. My final project can be found here:


I was thrilled to have the opportunity to spend the day with Mason Lowrey, the director of the rescue, and to have the chance to experience such a unique opportunity for  a class.
