My home institution UCR has really upped its game with media. This summer, they worked with me to develop a youtube video as well as write statements on my research for the alumni magazine. There were some bumps and starts in developing the film, one in particular was (to me) a funny reminder of generation gaps. Some of the Millennials in the video-editing crew thought that buying rights to a clip of “Huey” helicopters in the setting sun from the film “Apocalypse Now” would be a cool scene to start my promo video. (Not cool!) They replaced it with great, real footage.
The online magazine version includes the film and the bio I wrote, quite like the layout!
And the Press tells me the book is finally in stock!
