    Radio Show Story


    For this 3-star assignment I told a story of how our radio show was produced. This story was actually a lot of fun!

    I chose to make a bumper for one of my 10-star audio assignments. This assignment is 4-stars. This week we are gearing up to create our radio shows, so I decided to create a bumper of my own in order to help better prepare for our radio show.

    Weekly Assignment #5


    Week 5! This week was filled with a ton of audio assignments, far from my favorite thing to do! But this is mostly because I have never messed with audio before. When I first saw that we were dealing with audio assignments this week I immediately panicked! Audio is my …

    Made of Junk


    For this 4.5 – star assignment we were asked to compose a sound piece using only found sounds and edit and mix the piece on any sound editing equipment and upload to soundcloud. So this is what I came up with:

    Distorted Sounds


    I was actually really excited about this assignment because I felt like it allowed me to learn more about Garageband, the app I am using for all audio assignments. For this 3.0-star assignment we were asked to
    take a recognizable song or sound, and then turn it into a completely …

    Radio Show Ideas


    I’m not a huge fan of radio shows so I only have a few to compare to when it comes to ideas of radio shows. But, I was thinking there could be some sort of interview with a secret agent or create a game show of some sort. Maybe even …

    What’s Bumpin’ on the Radio


    This radio bumper assignment was actually kind of fun! I was able to include my brother who had been standing in the room while I was trying to record, so I asked if he wanted to join in!

    Tweet a-Long!


    Monday night was the first night I ever listened to DS106 radio! Not only did we listen to the radio podcast but we also were able to tweet along with it as well with other classmates. I thought this was an interesting idea and think other professors could benefit from …

    Another week in the books! I was pretty excited about the topic
    being mostly about photography. I have always enjoyed taking pictures as a
    hobby and I was excited to learn more what others had to say about their experiences
    as well. For this week I started out by doing …

    Still Shot


    For this assignment I chose a still shot from a scene in Mr.
    and Mrs. Smith. My favorite movie, again, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I promise I will
    switch it up eventually This photo I feel has a lot of contrast, good balance
    and background. I think there is a …

    Then and Now


    For this 4-star assignment we were asked to combine at least two images to create a shocking message. After thinking long and hard about what my messaged wanted to be; this is it:

    The Photoblitz challenge was interesting! I actually had a lot of fun with it and I will probably use it in the future for photo ideas. When I first opened the link, I saw my challenge, and I just wasn’t too excited about it so I “clicked for another list”. …

    Gotta Start Somewhere


    Photography has always been a fairly big part of my life one
    way or another. As a small child I would walk around with my fake camera taking
    pictures of everything. The small plastic camera had a string around it that I
    could carry around my neck. As I got …

    Didn’t See That Coming!


    Mr. and Mrs. Smith has got to be one of my favorite movies of all time. Partly because it is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! However it is also the perfect blend of romance and action. I believe Mr. and Mrs. Smith has a very catchy story-line, one that gets …
