All in Up All Night

As a film student, you get familiar with latenight shoots or editing sessions that stretch to dawn, fueled by deadline, shitty vending-machine coffee and sugar. It's not academia, it's practical lessons in production while juggling a full workload of regular classes.

The times I have been up all night fall into two categories. There have been times when I stayed up all night on purpose. When I was in college I stayed up to participate in a 24-hour trivia contest on the campus radio station. Once I spent 24 hours at work.
