Traveling for spring break?

If you must travel over spring break (or anytime), minimize your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19 in these three easy steps: 

Before you travel: Check your destination state and city for any travel restrictions or requirements.  Do not travel if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are in isolation, have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms in the past three days, or have had contact with a confirmed case, or are in quarantine. 

Before you head back to Eugene: Schedule a test to take place 3-5 days after your return. Schedule with one of these providers: MAPother testing providers in Lane County.

Upon return: Quarantine by yourself until you receive word of a negative test— that is, keep distance and wear your mask around others, including your roommate(s)-- and watch yourself for symptoms.

From Yes Day to Love Victor, Film Editor is Making the Cuts

Sabrina Gimenez

Article From Around the O, January 20, 2021

Sabrina Gimenez loved movies, but she couldn’t imagine a future in film until a light bulb moment during her senior year at the University of Oregon.

For a film studies class, she had created a short, stop-motion animated film about two bicycles that go on a date on campus, culminating in a dorm-room tryst. As she pieced the film together, she found herself completely enthralled. “All of a sudden, I look at my clock on the computer, and six hours had passed right before my very eyes, and I was like, ‘How did this happen?’” 

Fast-forward seven years, and the 2013 graduate (English, cinema studies) is now working in Hollywood as an assistant film editor. She has helped produce scripted movies, including director Miguel Arteta’s 2020 comedy Like a Boss, the upcoming Netflix comedy Yes Day, and season two of the critically acclaimed Hulu teen drama series, Love, Victor.
