    Posts that inspired me


    These are the links to a few posts that inspired me over the semester.

    Entourage Movie Premier


    For my “One Movie Watches Another” assignment I took a scene from “Entourage” where the whole gang is watching one of Vince’s movie premiers and mixed it with a funny animated trailer I found on Youtube.  I mashed these up using iMovie, which is a fantastic program if …

    The Bosh Perspective


    For my “Uncle Bob” remix assignment I decided to paste Chris Bosh’s face over the face of my friend to introduce an unexpected character that demonstrates perspective.  This image was pretty simple to edit.  I used the lasso tool to cut out Chris’s face and the airbrush to fix some …

    I Love You, Man in 5 Seconds


    For my 5 second film assignment I choose to preview one of my favorite movies “I Love You, Man”.  I cut the important clips from the trailer into my mini movie.  If you have seen it, you should get the main idea.  ”I Love You, Man” is a comedy about …

    First Video Assignment


    I really enjoyed learning the ropes in iMovie and had fun adding music I like to an awesome movie trailer.  I picked the Lorax because it is a great kids movie with a legitimate message.  The song I used is an old Ratatat beat called Loud Pipes found on Youtube.  …
