In class, I watched a documentary about the new wave of film in the mid-nineteen hundreds in Europe. It centered around groundbreaking directors and the techniques they used to enhance their films. One element that was done really well in the film was which clips to show and when to show them. They picked clips that would grab your attention within the first few seconds, and hold it for the rest of the clip. The information was also very intriguing, as well as focused and clear.

"Between the Folds" is a documentary on how origami is done today. In the documentary, you saw both the artistic and mathematical side to origami. It was very interesting to see how some geniuses enjoy origami because of how it stimulates their brains, and also manages to be fun. I especially liked how they showed the mathematical side to origami, because most people don't associate math with origami. It had some nice music and editing as well.

Since Booker T. is a school for artists, you would expect there to be some crazy outfits, strange decorations, and creative people all around on a daily basis. On Halloween, however, the school is simply oozing creativity. People dressed up in strange costumes, shared candy, and even had an event after school to commemorate the occasion. The day was quite simply awesome and I can't wait to see what happens on Halloween next year.
