    Week 11


    This week was fairly smooth sailing. Finishing the video episode was not as difficult since we already had a general idea of the plot and we had some scenes already shot. The daily creates this week were fun and each week are getting easier and easier for me to become …

    Radio Show Project Pt. 2


    At first thinking about filming the radio show I thought was going to be super intense and not easy to get the conversation flowing enough to create 30 minutes worth of content. I was proved wrong when my group filmed ours together. We ended up with 37 minutes of content …
