    How To Read A Movie


    I’ve never heard of a Cinema Interrupt, but the way that Roger Ebert describes it in his article “How To Read A Movie” sound like a lot of fun. I think it would also be really useful to have a bunch of different perspectives from a film’s audience. …

    A Triple Take on American Psycho


    Visual Only-

    The opening is simply a shot of the man sitting on a chair, there is little action occurring but the scene is well balanced. Everything seems simplified and clean, from the mans sharp outfit to the empty bottle and unopened cigar on either side of the man. Although …

    Robo Boogie


    This was a fun daily create. Of course I picked the robot that resembles a cat since I love cats. I got a kick out of changing its arms, head, and hips movement. The movements I chose were completely random. Below is a screenshot of my dancing robot.

    Always learning


    That’s the theme of my week! I’m always learning. I keep on learning that if I don’t manage my time correctly that I will pay the price for that. I also have learned how to use different audio techniques to make my sound special. I think that if I had …

    Technology is something else man


    In Lo Down Episode 9, I really like the intro. The intro music really made me get into it. The speaker has such a great, articulate voice. The intro was great as it showed what a bumper was. Even though I didn’t create a bumper, I think it would be …

    I’m Learning a lot that’s from sure

    The Fat Boys were one of the most influential hip hop groups in the late 1980’s. They had a funky style and their swag was on point. They embraced themselves for being fat and had a positive outlook about their weight. Their song “All You Can Eat” is a hip …

    Make the most of what you have


    For this assignment, we were told to show an improvisation of something that we use everyday. For my improvisation, I decided to go with a picture of my improvised recording studio. I thought that this was a great picture that did a good job of representing myself. I like to …
