Spring Quarter in Costa Rica 2006

I studied abroad in Costa Rica with Prof. Susan Bolton with
the College of Forest Resources sutding Sustainable Developement.  A
required aspect of the course is an Independent Project, for which, I
decided to make a film.  I am a first time film maker and rented the
equipment from the University for the filming, as I do not have any
of this equipment myself.  I have roughly five hours of footage from
the trip and by the beginning of Fall quarter I hope to have a 10 to
12 minute promotional, documentary type film that my teacher can use
for future quarters to show prospective students.
