    I really like video editing and stuff.  I think its super fun, and I is definitely my favorite technique so far this year.  Although I didn’t use a whole lot of the angling, lighting, and other effects that I learned about from the Ebert quote from last week (2 weeks …

    by

    I was not very happy with the end result of this one.  The goal was to recreate a scene from a horror film, so I immediately thought of “The Shining” and hereeee’s johnny and all that jazz.  Well I had originally intended on having some friends help me with this, …

    Return to the Silent Era

    by

    This might be my new favorite assignment this year.  It was certainly challenging, and time consuming, but it was a blast to do.  I thought the idea of “Drive” was a good choice because the main character “Driver” hardly speaks at all in the movie.  In fact, he has maybe …

    The goal of this assignment was to give a short play by play of an everyday activity.  Well as most of you know by now, I love football and I love the redskins so I knew I wanted to do a play by play of the skins game.  Unfortunately, they …

    One Archetype, Five Movies, Five Seconds

    by

    The goal of this assignment was to pick a theme, and find 5 movie scenes that go with it.  I know it was only supposed to 5 seconds, but I it was really hard to get the point of each video with just 1 second clips.  The movies I chose, …

    Lip Sync!

    This was one of my favorite assignments all year.  I am one of those people that always sings in the car to songs, even if I don’t know them that well.  When I’m by myself I generally do it like this, because I think its really funny.  I also love …

    Range of Emotions

    by

    This one was really fun.  It made me think of that mime act where he is smiling and moves his hand in front of his face then he’s frowning.  I just thought it was fun to be really dramatic with my emotions.  I hadn’t really put a lot of thought …

    Assignment 376: Return to the Silent Era

    Maybe this is cheating a little bit, but I think the movie “Drive” would work as a silent movie because there is hardly any talking in it to begin with, especially from Ryan Goslings character who doesn’t even have a name, I just …

    Exploring the Movie Even More

    by

    According to IMDb.com, the first scene in the movie in the coffee shop is the same place that the scene from the movie “Se7en” where Morgan Freeman and Gwyneth Paltrow talk. I think this is really interesting because “Se7en” is another one of my favorite action/crime movies.  Another interesting fact …

    Look, Listen, Analyze

    I chose the scene from the movie “Training Day” with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.  I love this movie.  I am personally a big fan of crime/action/thriller movies, but this one is definitely one of my favorites, if you haven’t scene it I highly recommend it.

    It was interesting to listen to the other radio shows, especially looking for the differences in each one.  I think that mine was a lot different than most others, but I enjoyed them regardless.  This was a pretty fun project overall.  Here is my review for the Autumnal Show

    I liked this show a lot.  It seemed fairly simple with regards to the different sounds, but the quality of each sound was well balanced and I could not hear any unnecessary noises like mouse clicking or anything like that.  The editing was one of my favorite parts of the …

    I had thought about doing disorganized, then I thought about doing silly, and a few others like lazy, red (in red font), and long (lllllooooonnnnnggggg), but I liked the idea of backwards.  I just thought it was a cool idea, although not super duper original because everyone does backwards words, …

    When I first read the assignment, my mind instantly wandered through all sorts of catchphrases, and when I thought of this one I knew I had to do it.  It is from an older movie, although the actor still directs, produces, and acts in many movies now.  He is a …
