    Paying It Forward


    I don’t want to spend too much time writing since I made a video, so here it is!

    I really think the information that I have provided in my video is going to help out any future students a lot.  It’s a short ~3 minute video, but well worth the …

    Final Project – Giant Jackson


    So, for my final project, I decided to go with the video media focus rather than any of the other things that we’ve worked on this semester.  I went ahead and did two different things to make this as well rounded as possible.  The first is I edited an IMDB …

    Week 13 & 14 Weekly Summary


    These assignments for the past two weeks were definitely a handful.  I think that I would have to say that this was probably the most time consuming week that I have worked on.  All of the assignments, save for just a few, required a lot of my time and work.  …

    Remix An Assignment – Reverse Bumper


    So, I went ahead and clicked around a few different remix assignments and came across this one.  The assignment seemed fairly easy and I was actually kind of worried that I hadn’t completed the assignment appropriately!  I’m going to go ahead and link all of the appropriate things so …

    Final Project Outline Plans


    Okay, well since I really enjoyed doing the video editing and the mashup part of the class, I’m going to focus my final project on that.  Here’s what I’m thinking…

    Week 11 & 12 Weekly Summary


    So, this is coming in a bit later than I normally would have liked, but that’s really because these assignments have taken me a bit more time than I would have liked.  Having two weeks to do them was extremely necessary.  I really don’t think that I would have been …

    Video Assignment #3 – Play by Play – 2 Stars


    So, we decided to go to Pancho Villa one night and eat dinner.  I love that place, so it’s always a fun time.  Jackson got his high chair and was playing around with some silverware.  After we ate, we were just taking turns holding him and talking.  Then, we got …

    Week 10 Weekly Summary


    I had so much fun with this week’s assignments!  I can’t wait until I actually get to do the work that I set up for my pre-production.  I’m literally already almost done with both of those assignments.  I’ve been looking forward to working with video all semester and it couldn’t …

    Look, Listen, Analyze


    Choosing between the different clips that we were given a choice of was rather difficult.  Since I love football movies, I went with Any Given Sunday.

    Look – With this one, there was a lot of cuts that the clip had.  There seemed to be a great amount of bouncing …

    The ADAAM Show – Radio Show Evaluation


    Evaluating my own radio show is going to be a bit difficult because I really do think that we created something that is really awesome.  Here it goes anyways!

    Quality of audio -e.g. is the volume appropriate? are the levels even? Is the sound clear?  – After listening live to …

    Nintendo DS106 – Web Storytelling



    Okay, this was SO much fun.  When I looked at this assignment, I was freaking out.  It looked like it was going to be a pain in the butt and I was so freaked out when we were supposed to edit code.  CODE? WHAT?  I was sweating bullets.  After …
