Doctor Who Week: Theories on the 50th Anniversary Episode

There have been many theories about the upcoming 50th anniversary over time. For the most part it seems all the signs are pointing into one direction.

And when I do find something that looks interesting, it’s pretty rare for me to stick around a show for longer than a couple of episodes.

Come See the World with Us: Chicago Int’l Film Festival

For two weeks, one movie theatre in Chicago is graced with having their entire top floor reserved for one event: a film festival featuring movies made by artists from around the world. During this time, one can participate in various panel discussions, red-carpet premieres, and the unveiling of a “surprise film.” This year, I had the privilege of attending with a group of fellow Digital Media majors as we stormed the windy city for the Chicago International Film Festival. Quite honestly, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. What I did know was that I was going to be doing a lot of subtitles.
