Jacob & Evan: REU Poster Day, ABE Bldg Atrium, UF, Gainesville, FL
SouthEastern Conference v. EvapoTranspiration
Snapper Creek Canal in Miami-Dade County
In the past, I’ve been able to develop the REU videos together with the students over the course of several production meetings before any filming ever took place. This year, however, production would formally begin only several hours following our only face-to-face planning meeting. Cause for concern? Perhaps. But then I met Evan and Jacob.
Evan & Jacob: Holdin it down for the SEC
Prepared, collaborative and invested, there is no “trying” with these students; there is only “doing.” At their suggestion, we would not shoot two videos, one for each study; rather we would film only one, with the two investigations as narratives complementing each other - a bold choice, the first of many over our two-day shoot.

So what do you get when you bring together two camera-ready dynamos and myself - eager to get back into short-form production after a five month hiatus? The result speaks for itself!
Evan & EddyCo
We shot throughout TREC’s verdant expanse and on-location in the unforgiving sun at the shade-free Snapper Creek Research Area in the suburb of Kendall. Crane shots, tracking shots, zooming shots, odd angles, everything was on the menu with Jacob and Evan, and often executed successfully in one take!
Same time next year!
Evan Wesley: Estimating ET as a function of Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR)
My understanding is that the REU Program for Water Resources will not continue next year. If this is the case then this was a great pair of students with which to conclude. I am pleased with what we were able to produce and that the timing was ideal for a trip to South Florida to complete this work.
