    Advice to Future ds106ers


    There’s a lot to say about this class. It was stressful, it was fun, and it was cool. Even if you just needed an elective credit, like I did, it’s really worth it. I learned so much I otherwise never would have, and the creativity on part of Professor Bond, …

    Behind the Scenes of Breaking Bond: Week 14 summary


    Breaking Bond was a tough assignment, as it should have been, but it was a lot of fun. Megan Carey, A.K.A. Agent Annabella Smith, and I made an awesome final. We basically organized our final as a story with different journal updates throughout the semester. The premise we chose was …

    Spy Interview


    Here is my spy interview for ds106. This one took me a while in selecting the questions, coming up with answers, and splitting the clips and moving them around, but other than that, it wasn’t bad. I decided to go with the “disguise” that everyone seems to wear in the …

    Video Essay: Quantum of Solace



    I created this video essay analyzing the cinematography of a fight scene from the film Quantum of Solace, because what’s a spy movie without a good fight? I made it using iMovie and Audacity (and just as a tip: the freeze-frame option in iMovie is a life and time …
