Week 5: Barely Alive

As you can probably tell by the time stamp from this post, this week has been one of the harder ones for me. Time management went flying right out the window and everything got shoved into a few quick days of work. Would not recommend. […]

E.T. Phone Home

In this audio assignment worth a whopping 5 stars, I created a phone call from the perspective of a character in Philip K. Dick’s short story, The Defenders. This assignment was the perfect one for doing what we were assigned to this week: weave in something […]

Rise and Shine Audio Adventure

We all have our particular sounds of the morning, afternoon, and night. The bang of a door or squeaky board in the floor may be familiar to us but jarring to others. In this audio assignment, I explored that blurry line of familiarity and alienness […]

S.O.S.: Save Our Sounds

Frequency 2156 is an awesome sight that collects different audio posts from all over the world and compiles them into one gigantic audio narrative. The idea is that the apocalypse has come and people worldwide are attempting to reach out and communicate with someone, anyone. […]

Open Your Ears

Week 4: Seeing Through the Eyes of the Apocalypse

Our focus for this week was on the visual elements of storytelling, especially photography and film. I had tons of fun exploring this side of narrative development and this has probably been my favorite week so far. Between the daily creates, photoblitz, visual assignments and […]

Gif or Jif?

Some may claim it’s pronounced Jif but Graphics Interface Format files, or Gifs will always be Gifs with a hard ‘g’ to me! This week we were given the task to make our own gifs using the apocalyptic film we chose to watch. I watched […]

This Class is a Terror

For my second visual assignment (1 1/2 Stars to add to the 5 of my barcode assignment), I chose the 106 Horror! assignment. The instructions were: create or modify an image of the number 106 that is in the genre of a horror movie. Make […]

Scan Your Code to Purchase the Apocalypse

Train to Busan, only $9.99 at your local apocalyptic retail! This week I chose Train to Busan as my apocalyptic film to watch and although my reaction to it will come in a later post, I’ll tell you right now that this movie gave me […]
