    Frequency 2156


    Browsing the Frequency2156 was very interesting. It was fun clicking on random radio stations people added. I really like the way it connects us even from people in different states and countries that our dealing with The End too. I liked when people added sound effects to allow the audience …

    Everyone meet the kind-hearted Bobbi Jane. She is a lot like me… but different. I thought if I made my character a bit like me it will be easy to follow and relate to, but making her a little different will make me step out of my comfort zone and …

    Film Reflections and gifs


    Watching the La Jetee, I enjoyed the cinematography because I am also in a Cinema Studies class this semester! All the elements I have learned thus far were helpful and easy to pin point in La Jetee. It was hard to understand at first what was happening. But through each …

    One month down



    QOW: Do you think an animated GIF can be considered a story? Why or why not?


    I definitely think you should consider gif’s as a story because not only can you describe its true storyline from the original gif, but you can also create a completely new one! …

    Alternative Ending..


    I chose to recreate a different ending to Finis because I was really attracted to the short clips of romance Pollack included. I never really thought anything was going to happen between Eastwood and Alice, but as the story went on I noticed the chemistry Pollack was explaining.

    Original Ending:…

    Short Story Reflection


    The two short stories I read were There will come soft rains by Ray Bradbury and Finis by Frank Lillie Pollock. I enjoyed these two stories and reading what different types of apocalypse can happen when you get creative.


    Finis was about a giant sun/star that completely burns earth …

    The first thing I ask myself when ordering a product off Amazon was “how can i get the most use out of one product?”

    Then I thought to myself “hot sauce.” What better product than hot sauce? Not just any ol’ regular hot sauce, but Zombie Apocalypse Hot Sauce, yeah, …

    QOW: In the event of an apocalypse, do you think you’d be the kind of person to hoard your supplies (for yourself and your loved ones) or would you share them with those around you in need? Why or why not?

    It depends on the person I want/choose share with. …

    Question of the week: In the event of a zombie apocalypse, would you rather be turned into a zombie or have everyone you love turned into a zombie? Why?
