I'm Rachel Medeiros, and I'm currently a sophomore studying film/animation/video at Rhode Island School of Design.
Working on videos and short movies with friends has always been fun, even back in the elementary school days with my dad's tape camera. It wasn't until I got to RISD, though, when I discovered that this is really what I want to do (I thought for the longest time I was going to go into illustration, or some kind of technical drawing/painting).
So, as for areas of focus. I especially like doing everything that involves pre- and post-production. We'll see what area I end up specializing in,though...
