About Lisa


Bio

I am a 2014 graduate of the Honors College at Oakland University with a BA in Cinema Studies and minors in English and Japanese Language. I graduated with Departmental Honors (in-major GPA 3.79) and Cum Laude overall. During my collegiate studies I won awards in both academic and creative film applications including First Place in Film Criticism 2012-2013 and First Place in Special Effects at Grizzdance 2013.

I am a 2014 graduate of the Honors College at Oakland University with a BA in Cinema Studies and minors in English and Japanese Language. I graduated with Departmental Honors (in-major GPA 3.79) and Cum Laude overall. During my collegiate studies I won awards in both academic and creative film applications including First Place in Film Criticism 2012-2013 and First Place in Special Effects at Grizzdance 2013. In my undergraduate thesis, “Signing With A Sword: Signature Sign Patterns of Semiotics as Connotative Constructs Applied to Chinese Martial Arts Cinema”, I identified the semiotic sign patterns in four distinctive styles of Chinese martial arts films, and demonstrated how they were constructed due to their major influence. I am currently a freelance filmmaker and video editor.

I am confident that I will be able to help you learn cinema studies or basic film production in your preferred style of learning. Just as films encompass historical, industrial, theoretical, creative, and technical aspects in an audio/visual form, I am able to adjust my teaching method to your preferred style of learning (visual, audio, or kinesthetic). At the end of the tutoring, my students should have a greater understanding of cinema studies and be able to apply their knowledge to additional courses in cinema and other studies.
