Week 11: Video Extravaganza

Hello, folks! We’ve made it through another week. I feel the end of The End is near and that makes me both relieved and sad. So this week was another week of video and I made some amazing content that I’m really proud of. Video […]

The Survivors at Sunrise Debut

This past Wednesday, our show: Survivors at Sunrise, debuted at 10 PM. It had laughter, it had tears, it had some sick beats and cool bumpers. To be honest, I was nervous to hear the final result. I had a good time recording with everyone […]

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 […]

Week 6: Playing Catch Up

By now, my desktop has become littered with saved images, PhotoShop files, drafts, transparents, half-edited messes and more. Spring break is calling my name and my computer would like a clean out, please. But I had an enjoyable week of doing one of my favorite […]

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 […]

Week 3: Total Burnout, Dude

Another week, another 5 billion words coming out of my wee little brain. Last week I decided I needed to be more organized and follow a schedule. Did I follow through? No. Will I still try again next week? Yes. When I compound all my […]

A Rusted Future

This week I had the pleasure of reading two post-apocalyptic short stories. The first of these was There will come soft rains by Ray Bradbury. From the get go, this story drew me in with a full immersion into the destroyed post-apocalyptic world that it took […]

Tsunamis, Pandemics and Bots, Oh My!

This week found me being fully initiated into the world of Science Fiction and Apocalyptic media. First off, I watched the cheesy and plot hole-ridden TV special, End Day. It was an easy to digest series that followed repetitions of the same day culminating in […]

Week 1 Reflection

This week was a bit of a blur. I’ll be honest, when I first took a look at our initial assignments, I was a little overwhelmed. Twitter, Instagram, YouTube; I could handle all of those. Those were platforms that I used every day. But immediately […]
