    Week 4 summary


    I read Roger Eberts “how to read a movie” first, it was pretty informative. I grew up watching his show on weekend mornings (with Jean Siskel), so I was happy to read more and get a feel for how he started to read or give opinions on films he watched. …

    Sports reel (video assignment)


    I thought this 5 star project would be fun. Turns out it wasn’t, I encountered all sorts of downloading, copyright issues etc. I had to splice pictures in sequence, in an effort to try to tell a story from beginning to end (from taking the field to the final whistle).…

    Tire vine


    I had to look up what a vine was. The urban dictionary stats that it is a short video, usually 5 to 10 seconds long of compiled clips of random stuff. They are frequently posted on social websites such as facebook, twitter etc. So with that to go on I …

    My way of reading movies.


    My first go around at college I had a roommate who was a undergrad film student at UT. Prior to living with her I never really looked at movies abstractly. Meaning in my opinion I never thought about why a film made me feel, think a certain way or empathize. …

    The Truth (Stories) Synopsis


    I listened to “Remember the Baby”, “Failing”, and “Third Party”. Here are some comments I have about them:

    Remember the Baby, was pretty strange. The music was kind of overbearing to the actual events. Its starts with an aunt watching her niece who won’t stop crying. She is being hounded …

    TV on the Radio?


    After listening to Ira and Jad, I was able to connect the dots as to why I thought a movie was bad and why I thought a movie was good (all things being even). All things being even, meaning the thesis of the film was decent, Ira pointed out regarding …

    Create your own business card

    Eventually after graduation I think I would have a card similar to this, without the fake information. It’s simple, bold  (if made on bonded paper with texture) and conveys what i am trying to convey. That is, I am not wasteful.
