Women in Combat

true symbol FINAL Women serving in combat is a topic that rarely is talked about. In 2015, women gained rights in the United States to serve in all positions that were only open to men previously. As Ashton B. Carter stated, “They’ll be able to serve as Army Rangers, Green Berets, Navy Seals, Marine Corps Infantry, Air Force parajumpers, and everything that was previously open only to men”. Women are just as vital to the military as men are in both physical, and intellectual ways, and with more women alongside men in combat, the US military could benefit a lot from both genders being involved. In the end, a uniform needs a body to fill it, and whether it’s a male or a female’s, either one can complete the job if qualified. If a women wants to fight for her country, she should not need to earn the rights to do so.

Update #13

This is the week that I finish everything, and right now I am on the right track to do so.

I just finished my presentation for Thursday and I am 85% done with my trailer right now (once I can get into the lab today I will finish it all later today and maybe take one or two extra shots to add in quick). I also am 90% done with my process book and when I can get into the lab today, I will put the finishing touches on it. So, it could very well be that today I put the finishing touches on everything needed for Thursday today.

I also drew out a few more quick storyboards to show in my process book as well.

Update #12

I have been very busy wrapping up my process book (which will be ready by the end of this week/beginning of next week ready to print) and filming and editing my last two trailers to show during my presentation for next week. I also have the two film posters finalized, and are shown below. I also FINALLY came up with my own, unique typography for “Duende”, as well as incorporating that in my process book. I will post an alphabet of “Duende-type”  (unoriginal, I know) as soon as I get my tablet to start working again.

I’m feeling really good about my process book and will base my presentation off of that.
