    There has been a lot of attention lately put on mental health, and especially keeping mentally healthy in your workplace.

    Unnecessary Sequels

    What do you think was the most unnecessary sequel ever made? I would put in my vote for some of the direct to DVD Disney sequels. I remember watching them when I was a kid, but I couldn't tell you what they were about!

    Everywhere, Everything, All At Once

    I saw this movie in theaters and I was blown away! I loved this movie so much. There were so many neat visual tricks and interesting shots, as well as a captivating story. I don't want to spoil it, but it's about a mother and a daughter and their relationship across the multiverse.

    Wildlife Photography

    Does anyone have experience with wildlife photography? A friend of mine got a job taking photos of birds at a wildlife center. I think that there would be a lot of challenges with wildlife photography, especially if the animal isn't interesting in cooperating with the portrait!

    Food Photography

    Has anyone ever worked in food photography? I think it would be really interesting. I read that sometimes, food photographers will do things like put lipstick on strawberries to make them look more enticing! I hadn't thought that food photographers would do things like that, but it makes sense.

    Any thoughts on RED Cameras?

    I'm thinking about what equipment to invest in after graduation. I've heard some good things about RED cameras, but they are REALLY expensive! :( For anyone who has used one, is it worth the cost? Is it something that I should be saving up for, or should I look elsewhere?
