Mention the name Marko Rakar at any cafe in Croatia and you will get one of two looks. If the person is in the know, politically, they will smile and ask, only half-jokingly, if he is not on the run from the police anymore. If the person is a bit...

I'm here, safe and sound in Croatia. I took some time to record a video introduction, I hope it gives you all some idea of what my project entails. I'll keep up the vlogging as the summer goes on Steven

June 2010 - I'm Steven Ellis, a 10.5’er originally from Washington, D.C. (technically Bethesda, for those of you in the know). I’m passionately ADD, so my interests range from the founding fathers to microfinance, lacrosse, Japanese animation, whiskey distillation, etc etc. My (independent) concentration here at Brown is Applied Psychology, which is a blend of behavioral theory and practical extension.
My project this summer, though, relates more to my major at the University of Southern California, which I transferred from after sophomore year. I studied film and television production at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, working mostly on narrative non fiction (e.g. competitive cooking shows, Current TV pods, documentaries) and will use that experience this summer in making a documentary in Croatia, about the EU accession process and what I see as a disenfranchising of much of the country and an increased incursion of globalization on one of the world’s most beautiful cultures. There’s much to share about this project, and myself, and I look forward to doing that via the Global Conversation over the rest of the semester and, more importantly, live from Croatia this summer.
