    Summer Week 4


    This week was a little difficult for me as I was on vacation in Las Vegas, however, video is probably the one area out of the four that I am most comfortable. Even though I was on vacation in Las Vegas it did give me many options for content for …

    Summer Week 3


    I know the professor had mentioned in her intro video and also in an email that this week is a love or hate for most people. For me, I actually enjoyed doing the Audio Assignments. Despite being a Communications Major I am a bit shy and get nervous when I …

    Blog Comments


    I have really enjoyed reading my fellow students blogs. The creativity or perspective they take on a subject is always fascinating to me. Sometimes after reading a blog it helps unlock something in my mind to get me on the right path to finish my blog. I hope that some …

    My Sick Beat

    Reflections – Ted Talk & Scottlo


    Learning about the background noise was really cool. It could pick it up when listening to the detective stories, it definitely adds to the imagination when given sounds of the surrounding scenery. A good example I feel is the war of the world broadcasts. All the shouting, fighting and sound …

    Reflections – Audio Storytelling


    When listening to Ira Glass part one, I like his formula for a story and that the sequence of events is the first building block of creating a story. The bait in the sequence is the most important part because without it the listener won’t want to listen unless it …

    He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood, 
    as a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood.…

    Summer Week 2


    Second week in and I have a dichotomy of feelings… I have gained so much knowledge yet I still feel like I don’t know anything. The assignments were fun and challenging. The reading I had to do for the Design Blitz was extensive and thought provoking. The information really helped …

    Design Blitz

    After reading the information in the Design Blitz assignment I just started taking random photos of images throughout the week that I felt related to the information I had just learned. I started to see things in a different way now as I was looking for …

    Generate Cool Letters


    After completing several difficult design assignments, I thought this one would be a bit easier to do. I was wrong as usual. It was more difficult that I thought because I wanted to make it very cool (pun intended!). I was trying to make not only to make the letters …

    From Screen to Page


    This is a family scene from the movie Tombstone where Doc Holiday and Johnny Ringo square off. They end up not drawing their guns and both live to fight another day. The epic quote when Johnny Ringo asks Wyatt Earp and his brother Virgil if they want to “play …

    Two movie genres in one!

    This movie was a surprise hit for me as I really had no idea how they put these two movie genres together. The action was superb along with the acting and characters in the movie. The movie is based on a historical non-fiction character mixed …

    Truthful Movie Poster

    Guns, Bullets, Action… As Expected.

    This assignment was fairly easy as compared to some of the other ones I have worked on as of late. I had just went and seen this movie with my father last weekend and I remembered my expectations of it before watching it. My “truth” …

    I hope I get a good grade!

    The opening scene of the movie Inglorious Basterds is one of my all time favorites. It is so deep and moving that it absorbs you right into the film. So when I saw the character wiping away the sweat again it reminded me …

    GIF of me throwing: Shot Put, Discus, Hammer, Javelin, & Weight Throw

    This design assignment was supposed to be about a movie poster but I wanted to make it more personal so I changed it a tad. Since I am Mr. UMW, I used videos of me throwing …

    Copycat of famous kiss in Times Square

    Last year I took a trip to New York City with my girlfriend and reenacted the famous V-J Day kiss by a sailor and nurse in Times Square.

    I did an image search on google for the Life magazine cover of the famous …

    Summer End of Week 1


    I won’t lie, trying to cram all this fun learning into one week is a bit of a challenge. That being said, the more I am engaged with it the easier it is becoming. When I have time I feel I can really put some creativity into the assignments. When …

    Duck’s Eye View

    I was walking around my moms deck looking for things to take pictures of when I came across this metal duck that she has as a decoration. I thought it would be a cool picture to make the duck look like it was longing to go back …
