Assignment Creation Station

This week we were asked to contribute two assignments for our fellow classmates to be able to complete. We could make two daily creates, two media assignments or one of both. Funnily enough, I submitted my first media assignment on a whim just last week! […]

Week 10: Now on VHS and DVD!

This week was the beginning of our two week exploration. iMovie and I became very well acquainted. I started out by watching 10 Cloverfield Lane and resources about analyzing films, which you can read here. I also completed two video assignments. The first was making […]

Foley á Deux

I love puns. Anyways, the second video assignment I did this week was Charlie Chaplin’s Foley Artist, worth 4 1/2 stars. The assignment was to add sound effects for an originally silent Charlie Chaplin short. I chose one called Recreation, which was one of the […]

Analyzing With Ebert: 10 Cloverfield Lane

Hey, folks! This week I learned a lot about looking deeper into the visual aspects of films. I took a film studies class last semester and loved it so I was ready to roll with it. First off, I watched a video that drew me […]

Week 8: Recording, Bots and Daily Creates

It’s week 8 and yet it doesn’t feel like it at all! It’s almost weird not having a weekly post to look at, the normal influx of comments and the usual flow of work. And yet, I can’t complain because it was because of spring […]

Sunrise Survivors Debut

This Wednesday we began the recording of the Sunrise Survivors official first (and last) episode. We met in the HCC and rented a USB microphone to begin our recording. I know many people have come up with scripts and we considered doing the same but […]
