For this week’s classmate conversation I talked with Erika Perez. Erika is a second year film student at CSULB. I asked her what initially sparked her interest in film and what made her want to study film. She said that she began to watch a lot of movies during her junior and senior year of high school and she became fond of film. When I asked her what her favorite movie is she said that she couldn’t pick a favorite movie but she has many movies that she likes a lot. Erika said that she wants to go into the film industry and that she preferably doesn’t want to go into tv or anything like that, she wants to go into film production. We then spoke about the question of the week, “What do you think of fan art?” and “What do you think of Demi Lovato’s negative reaction to her fan art?” Erika said that she thought it was rude of Demi Lovato to put down the fan art because the artist put in a lot of time to create the work which is in admiration of Demi. Demi Lovato shouldn’t have reacted so brutally because the artist’s intent was not to make her angry, the art was created in appreciation for Demi.
