    Weekly Summary – Project Week


    This week was really stressful. I started the week with my original idea, then scrapped it halfway through the week because I realized that it didn’t mean enough to me. That meant I had to start completely from scratch in the middle of the week. But at least it was …

    This two-and-a-half star assignment was actually one of my favorite video assignments that I had to complete.

    Video Essay


    I decided to make my video essay on one of the most famous scenes in “The Room”.

    As much as I love this movie, there are a LOT of flaws in the filming. This was more of a criticism rather than an appreciation, but there WERE some good techniques used …

    DS106 Rework


    For this assignment, I had to pick two assignments of my choice and basically “rework” them. I figured that it would be a good idea to choose two assignments in an area where I thought I needed a lot of improvement: design!

    This story is about one of the world’s worst prisoners, told through a series of Daily Creates.

    But, it’s fine… I hope.. …
