    “Moon Graffiti” was really amazing to listen to. I never really knew how well sound could set the stage and tell a story. The music in the background to the recorded conversation really set the mood and intensified everything. It added suspense to the whole story. When they found …

    For this assignment, I had to choose a song, find a video for it, and then record a clip of why it means so much for me.

    For this assignment, I had to take sound clips from throughout my day and combine them into one long clip.

    To complete a PhotoBlitz, we had 20 minutes to take as many of the photos as we could on our given list. Sounds easy, right? Wrong! Some of those choices were just not simple. I can honestly say I hit next quite a few times before I found a …

    All things considered, my experience with photography is pretty limited. Of course when I was younger, I used the disposable camera and even had a real camera that required actual film and had to be taken to walmart or a pharmacy to get the pictures developed. I even had …

    I chose this particular assignment simply because I have so much fun creating these. Mixing a photo, a quote, and a person-all different but similar enough characters that its hard to figure out who actually said the quote is fun and challenging for me. It pushes me to get …

    It feels like Secret Agents and Spies have been around forever but the truth is that they didn’t really show up in movies until the early 1960’s and tv in 1964.
