Our new Member of the Week is Glory Kim! Glory joined LKT in Fall 2013, and has been a very active member since then! Read her interview below about an exciting project she is creating that YOU can help with!
Q: Could you tell us about the big video project you've been planning this semester?
A: Yes. This semester, I've been planning a Towson University Lip Dub Music Video through my class, "The Media Studio"! I've been planning this video and event since January and it's finally happening THIS Sunday!
Q: What gave you the inspiration for this idea, and the drive to push forward and get it done?
A: Well, this has always been a dream of mine since I was a senior in high school. Back when lip dubs were first becoming popular, I remember searching "Towson Lip Dub" on YouTube to see if it existed since it was the school I was going to be attending within the next year. When I noticed they didn't have one, I remember telling myself that I would one day make a lip dub for Towson. In my junior year of college, I tried bringing this up in one of my work places. As much as everyone loved the idea, it never took place due to the amount of people it would have involved and the crazy amount of planning it would have taken. I eventually gave up on the idea thinking how impossible it would have been to organize anyways. But this past semester, when I was in communication with my manager from the Undergraduate Marketing Department thinking of what to do for my big final project, he suggested that I do a lip dub music video for Towson. It's like I was reminded of my dream out of the blue. And I was absolutely determined to make this possible. If other schools could do it, why couldn't we? I told him it had actually always been a dream of mine to do this, and with the help and encouragement of him and my peers, I finally decided it was time. After all, I am graduating and this is my last opportunity to fulfill my dream as a student!
Q: How can someone reading this support the project?
A: For someone reading this, they can help support this project by joining the Facebook Event Page, "TOWSON UNIVERSITY LIP DUB VIRAL VIDEO!!!!!" It's not too late to join! It'll be Sunday, May 3rd from 12:30PM-3:30PM on campus!
Q: As a graduating senior, what has LKT taught you during your time with us?
A: As a graduating senior, LKT has taught me more than any of my EMF classes could have ever taught me. Through LKT, I've been able to gain much more hands on experience with film, and have explored different interests I never even knew I had. Joining LKT was the best college decision I've ever made as a student. I've made everlasting friendships, met my boyfriend who also shares extremely similar passions as me, and I've grown so much over the past two years through all the benefits of being a member in this media production society. I'm so sad to leave LKT, let alone Towson, but the amount of doors that LKT has left open for me have been incredible and I'm so excited for the next chapter of my life!
