BUCKET LIST NO. 7:
Meet my biological father
Or get a glimpse of his picture…
Interested students, alumni and faculty are asked to make an “InstaShort”: A 15-second Instagram short film remaking a movie that’s been nominated at this year’s 86th Academy Awards.
Participants are required to upload their finished film to their Instagram account with the hashtag #GMAInstaShorts, the film title, students involved, and tag @NewYorkFilmAcademy. ABC will be airing selected shorts and combine all submissions into one video that will be shared across all of our social media channels with a blog post of credits (school, students involved, parts they played, etc.).
For your chance to have your video aired on ABC’s Good Morning America next week, simply post your “InstaShort” on your own Instagram account AND ensure you send your video clips to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, February 25th, as we can submit your entry directly to GMA’s judges. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you work!
Desperation engulfs my whole being
Only now I see what we had was fleeting
It saddens me that we have to say goodbye
Close your eyes so you won’t see me cry
Now that you’re gone, my heart ceased feeling
Even when the void you left haven’t stopped bleeding
The pills I take to relieve me of you
The world doesn’t have enough to get me through
Nobody can ever take your place
A bitter reality I’ve got to face
Before you jump into any dramatic conclusion, this poem is actually about my tooth. I wrote it this afternoon, a couple of hours after I got my 2nd molar tooth extracted.
One of the strongest typhoons on record struck the Philippines, forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes and knocking out power and communications in several provinces. Haiyan had sustained winds of 235 kph with gusts of 275 kph when it made landfall. By those measurements, it would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S.
This is an appeal for HELP for those affected by the typhoon Haiyan in the country. 10,000 people have died in one province alone.
Please give whatever you can. Every little helps!
