First, let me introduce myself. I am Daffa Agradhyasto, staff of the Multimedia Department. Last year has been a marvelous year with PIDAS. Why? I learnt a lot of things , I had a lot of fun, and I knew that I am going to miss last year.
It all started when I was still a freshman. At the extracurricular demonstration, I saw some people and the MC wearing the red jacket (one of the MC was Gillian, the leader of the editorial staff). And, I think that I want to be one of them. I signed up, with around 104 other registrants. We were interviewed, and I was chosen, to be one of Multimedia Division staff. The hype of seeing my name on the list of the staff was unimaginable, I was proud.
The first assignment was making a blog entry about the relation of “Tomorrowland” movie and the vision and mission of PIDAS. (Actually I was awful at writing something like this). And truthfully, I don’t want to talk about it.
I was one of the first staff to cover an occasion outside school. It was “SERUNI” or “Sarasehan untuk Negeri” in University of Indonesia, Depok.
The problem was almost fatal. We did not have the transportation to go there. Luckily, one of us has the online taxi application, so we can go to UI by taxi. After we arrived there, I prepare my camera. After the first session ended, we went to the cafeteria to eat. And, after the second session ended, we went back. The editing part was given to Mutiara Syifa, and she was the first Best Staff of the Month.
Inauguration, was my turn-around point. I was told to be one of the cinematographer/photographer. And, at almost every PIDAS ‘big’ occasion, I’m the one who documented it. I was one of the ‘honored’ person to come up and wear the jacket.
The next story comes from SHARE 2016. I was one of the bidder, but I failed. But, the story did not stop there, I became one of the person who documented it (again). Sixth of February. trying to be punctual, I ended up as the first person who arrived there. Alone. Luckily, after some time, some of my friend came. Then, one-by-one they (PIDAS members) came. SHARE ’16 was a success. We did it. Here’s some footage.
Time flies, the end of Marvellous’ year were near. The last ‘big’ occasion was ‘buka bersama’. It was a moment of goodbye to our dear senior, and it was memorable. I was one of the person in the documentary section. It was great to have such a great senior, and great coach. But, I have to say goodbye, because they are a great mentor, not just in PIDAS, but also in real life. The most memorable part was the gift-giving part.The Victorious’ head of department and head of editorial staff gave a present to their senior (the Marvellous’ head of department and head of the editorial staff). Finally, we came to my favorite part: eating. I spent too much money on filling my stomach.
So, that was my story about a year with PIDAS. What’s yours ?
