    I LOVE VIDEOS!

    Seriously… who knew I might actually be good at creating something in this class?!  Almost as badass as Will Smith taking on some weird zombie dudes.

    Making videos takes a lot of time, but I really love how many options I have and how creative I could …

    Assignment Revision

    by

    I decided to revise my design for my character’s name because I feel like her personality has evolved now and needs to show in her name.

    I think this design shows the current position she is during the apocalypse, she has learned to be tougher and is a little more …

    Alternative Book Cover

    by

    Honestly, the dog in this book is the most important character, he deserves to be on the cover and also I wanted to portray its about zombies lol.  Without a companion of some sort I think the apocalypse would be much harder to get through

    Frequency 2156, Can You Hear Me Now?

    by

    First off… this is reallyyy reallyyy cool! Love this site.  I think the creators chose audio as the medium because I think it allows the listener to create their own images of who is behind the voice and fully immerse themselves in the stories. I think adding video would distort …

    Reading and Resource Reflection

    by

    Before this class, I had zero experience with audio and it has honestly been pretty intimidating.  I really like how Jad Abumrad paints this picture in my head without pictures in his description about the importance of connecting through radio.  Co-imagining is a really cool concept that I had never …

    Weekly Reflection:

    This week really helped me get into the creative spirit in an apocalyptic sense.  I am not very familiar with this subject matter but after reading some short stories and diving into my novel “I Am Legend” I have really acclimated to it.

    Short Stories Reflections

    by

     

    For this assignment I chose to read “Finis” and “There Will Come Soft Rains”, two very different short stories with a very similar end where there are no survivors.

    Finis was very hard to follow and had poor grammar and spelling that was a little distracting, but I tried …
