    WEEK 14 SUMMARY

    by
    My final project is a short film that explores existential angst and features the questions about art and life that have been plaguing me for months. My original concept for this project was an ambitious multi-media fiasco and I quickly realized while working planning it further that I would need to rework my idea. I […]

    WEEK 13 SUMMARY (PROJECT PROGRESS)

    by
    My final project is a multi-media audio-visual narrative experience detailing the various artistic interactions I have had in my life which have lead me to my current place in life. Each section details a different artistic medium and is therefore told through that medium. For my outline, I have divided the narrative into each medium: […]

    STELLAAAAA!

    by
    For my second mashup assignment, I created a short talking animal segment. Specifically, I took footage of my cat Dinah me0wing and overdubbed various iterations of Marlon Brando’s “Stella!” from A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). More like A Streetcat Named Dinah, am I right? Initially, I was only going to use Brando, but I ultimately […]

    WEEK TEN SUMMARY

    by
    A great week! I love filmmaking so I had a lot of fun with these assignments. First, I wrote up a blog post building upon last week’s ideas for final projects. For my video essay, I dissected a scene from Love and Mercy (2014). For my first video assignment, I created a Seinfeld stop motion. […]

    PROJECT IDEAS PT. 2

    by
    I really enjoyed Mason and Grace’s project ideas. A lot of my idea was about reflecting on my college experience, what I’ve learned, how I’ve grown, etc. I think Grace’s concept for doing something focused on giving back to younger generations by exploring the lessons learned from college life. I also like Mason’s idea of […]

    WEEK NINE SUMMARY

    by
    This was a very chill week which I was thankful for because this is the craziest time of the semester, hands down. This week, I listened to The Ungraduate Monster Wash, a delightful Halloween-themed radio show. Here is my post about it. I also wrote a reflective blog post that detailed my tentative plans for […]

    REMIX

    by
    I decided to remix my previous audio assignment, “Nightmare Serenade,” which was itself a remix of “Moonlight Serenade” as recorded by Frank Sinatra. In its original form, I was attempting to take the beauty of the recording and create the creepiest, most unrecognizable version I could. In this remix, I wanted to take that and […]

    PROJECT IDEAS

    by
    I would like to create some sort of audio-visual experience that details my artistic journey throughout life. It would display my artistic identity and its evolution, with me beginning as primarily an animator and filmmaker and eventually finding a passion for music which propelled me to UMW. It would be a multi-media work and its […]

    RADIO SHOW LISTENING

    by
    This week, I listened to The Undergraduate Monster Wash by Thomas, Mason, Bella, and Grace. This radio show focused on horror which was right up my alley, as Halloween is my favorite holiday. The show was broken up into multiple sections, including a radio play, a monologue about the Zodiac Killer, readings of poetry and […]

    WEEK EIGHT SUMMARY

    by
    This week I worked entirely on the radio show project. I had already recorded my bumper and commercial, so this week I focused on recording my spoken segment in the radio show. I met with my group and finalized our plans and after they had recorded their segments and sent them to me, I was […]

    WEEK SEVEN SUMMARY

    by
    This week, I formed my radio group. I was approached via email by Alexander Ohene, who, in fact, I know outside of this class through numerous mutual music courses. He knew I was interested in doing a music-related radio show and he asked if I wanted to join him and his sister, Josephine in a […]

    Y(OUR) MUSIC

    by
    For my radio show design assignment, I created a logo/bumper sticker. I went fairly simplistic with my design, because as Dieter Rams would say, “less, but better.” For this assignment, I worked in Adobe Illustrator. First, I created a perfect 600 x 600 square artboard and started with a light pastel blue background. Then, I […]

    RADIO SHOW PROGRESS

    by
    I am in a radio show group with Alexander Ohene and Josephine Ohene. We first connected as a group over email but later created a group chat through iMessage to communicate. We were all interested in doing something related to music. In order to tie it into the course theme, we decided it would focus […]

    WEEK SIX SUMMARY

    by
    This week was focused on design. I have always been a fan of graphic design and especially the creative philosophy surrounding it, so I was extremely excited about the assignments for this week. First, I read Massimo Vignelli and Chip Kidd’s booklets about design and wrote a reflective blog post about what I learned. Next, […]

    DESIGN BLITZ!

    by
    For my first Design Blitz photo, I focused on minimalism/use of space. This was exemplified by the front cover of Douglas Coupland’s 1995 novel Microserfs. This cover has a lot of white space, or I suppose I should say ‘grey space’. It presents the necessary information (the book title and author) and then allows for […]
