I've been waiting to see this documentary for quite a while now. You can imagine my excitement yesterday when I finally downloaded it off itunes. I'm hoping I'll have time to watch some of it today, and I'll definitely have time to watch it tomorrow (I'm taking the day off of school tomorrow because its my birthday!!!). I love magazines, and just flipping through them, but the whole experience. I'm probably one of the only people who actually look at the names of the publisher's, directors, and editors. My dream is to become a journalist for a magazine (preferably a fashion magazine). I'm fascinated by the production of making a magazine, all the work and brainstorming that goes into each issue, and the many glossy pages filled with photos and articles. I dream about one day writing an article on the season's latest trends, or writing a story on an important issue that women deal with. I'm an editor on my high school's yearbook staff, so I get a glimpse at what its like to work for a magazine. I'm also planning on taking a fashion journalism course this summer. I hope that blogging, classes, yearbook and my love for fashion will help me achieve my dreams. I'll also post about the movie once I've finished it.

  8. I absolutely love The September Issue movie!! Really, it is one of my favourite documents!!

  9. Haha I also always look at the names of the editors and publishers etc, eventually committing them to memory. I guess deep-down it's my secret hope to someday become a high-powered fashion journalist...and not a research scientist :P
