    Weekly Summary #5


    Well this was the last week.  I got to combine everything that I had done in the previous 4 weeks.  Those four weeks were basically practice.  This week seemed very easy to me.  I just had a little trouble in the beginning trying to think of what I should have …

    This is a tutorial for an assignment I created back in the second week of the class.  The prompt is located here.

    A good way to start is to use the template I uploaded to flickr.

    Next you can upload that into any editing software or photoshop software that …

    Weekly Summary #4


    This week was all about video.  There were parts that I definitely enjoyed more than others.  I actually really enjoyed using iMovie for the two assignments that I did.  I had never used it before so at first it was hard but I got the hang of it pretty quickly.  …

    Look, Listen, Analyze


    The scene I watched is from I Am Legend.  I have only ever seen it once, but from what I can remember it was a pretty good movie.  I thought that this scene would be good to watch for this assignment because there is plenty to pick apart in …

    TV show trailer -Will & Grace


    For this assignment, we had to pick a show that has already ended and make a trailer.  One of my favorite shows – all time is Will & Grace.  This show ran from 1998 to 2006 on NBC.  It’s about the friendship between 4 adults living in New York.  …

    Running Compilation Video


    For this assignment, we had to make a compilation of similar things then add music to it.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do at first.  I just sat there thinking.  I started thinking about movies and certain things that happen in movies.  That’s when I thought of …

    Reading movies


    I think of myself as a movie nerd, in terms of knowing a lot about movies and different things that go with it.  I took a film class a couple of semesters ago so there was some familiarity when reading Roger Ebert’s “How to Read a Movie” and …

    Week 3 summary


    This week was definitely the most challenging by far.  I mean it wasn’t terrible but it took some work.  I enjoyed some of it though.  I think I completed the assignments pretty well but I definitely could have done better.  Maybe I could have put more effort into it. What …

    The World of Audio Storytelling


    I would say that I’m definitely more of a television person.  But for people my age, who isn’t these days?  There were some really interesting points made in these videos though.  Both of the experts talked so passionately about radio.  It made me think really hard about it and try …

    Where Great Minds get to work and Eagles soar!


    Honestly, I don’t know how this could get any cornier/cheesier.  This is the cheesiest thing I have ever done.  I love UMW but it is so easy to mess with the saying, “Where Great Minds Get to Work.”  So I had to include that in there.  We are the eagles, …

    This is a typical morning for me.  Wake up from my alarm, stretch, put my glasses on and sit there for a little while more.  I’m sorry but I don’t know who gets right out of bed after their alarm goes off.  It usually takes me a little while.  The …

    This week was definitely a little more challenging than the first.  But I did learn a lot of new things.  I think that I completed the assignments pretty well for the most part.  The only things that gave me trouble were creating the Gifs.  I have a lot to learn …

    DesignBlitz-What a wonderful world!


    So throughout the week, I kept my eye open and my camera on for possible examples of the resources for this DesignBlitz.  Luckily, I found most of my examples on campus.  The first picture, is from my drive home from school.  The sun was setting and it looked really cool …

    I’m just here for the treats


    I took this picture of my dog back in February.  For some reason I really wanted a picture of hime where he was looking right at the camera because he never does that.  So I held a treat behind the phone, so it made it look like he wanted to …

    Who stole Bobby Flay’s favorite pan?


    Famous chef Bobby Flay came to us saying that his favorite orange pan was missing.  We told him we’d get to the bottom of this right away.  It was a process, but we eventually found the culprit.

    Bobby Flay had a couple of guests over on a Saturday Afternoon.  Those …

    Make a bad photo better


    Earlier this year I was in my room in eagle landing.  I looked out the window and there was a deer right by the side parking lot next to the trees.  I remember it was a gloomy day.  It wasn’t the best picture, but I added a sun with a …
