Hello All! We are Ashley and Colin, and we are producing Through The Lens.
I am Ashley Esselink, from Marshall, Mich. I am a junior at Alma College and a new media studies major. In my spare time, you can find me playing guitar, knitting, editing videos and pictures, or driving horse carriages. I love animals, swimming, and avocados. Working with the Communication and Marketing Office on projects like this one is one of my favorite things about my ‘Alma Experience’ so far! I am very excited to be working on this project all year because I am sure that people are really going to enjoy this series of blogs! I can’t wait to see where this project goes as we move forward through the year!
I’m Colin Silkwood from Milan, Ohio, and I am a senior and also a new media studies major at Alma College. I also work with the Communication and Marketing Office on video projects, and I can be seen around campus with either a camera in hand or behind a computer editing a new video. I am involved in the Alma Choir and Scots on the Rocks, a male a capella group. I often spend time reading Marvel Comics and designing new short film ideas. This series of blogs will prove a fantastic experience to be a part of, and I look forward to seeing where this project goes in the coming months!
