    The First Steps


    This is going to be a long walk.

    I have really started to begin learning more how to listen to God; not myself.

    Responses to Methods Suggested by Ebert


    These are not “laws.” To “violate” them can be as meaningful as to “follow” them. 

    I really liked the ideas behind Elbert’s article.  His opinions of scenes and camera placement are very compelling.  He has evidence and experience.

    However even he claims that he misses things.  I deduced that no …

    Sound Editing


    So I don’t really like sound editing.  I can do it, and I like the emotions you can evoke, however I really like Audio and visual put together.

    A Love Story – A Sound Effects Story


    This sound story is kind of personal.  It tells the story of a good friend of mine’s family.  I hope it evokes emotion and understanding.  I hope it is not too sad for people…
