    Blast From the Past

    Check out my video below “Blast From the Past” where we dig into perceptions of the 80’s as a generation and of 80’s pop culture. If you want to know more about it or my process for making it before watching, just follow the r...

    Final Project: The-Making-Of

    For my final project, I decided to make an 80’s theme show called “80’s Throwback”. The show will encompass audio, video, and design media as ways to communicate my story to those who will watch. It will be comprised of two major segments: Segment One - Flash from the PastThis will be a video section…

    Weekly Summary 11

    This week was a continuation from week 10 as a delve into video storytelling. So far, this has been the lease fitting storytelling format for me. While it was fun getting to do more group work with the same group I did the radio show with, it felt much less my “niche” this time around.…

    The Long Con

    While looking so far out is far from the usual for me, it is a nice activity to do from time to time. I still like my previous ideas about the possible topics, but after checking out some of the ideas put out by other students, I’m definitely open to some different ideas. One that…

    Weekly Summary 9

    This week was primarily a week of reflection. All the assignments had something to do with looking back on or improving assignments we had done in previous weeks. I’m someone who often tries to self reflect, so I felt right at home this week going over my own works. I started off with the first…

    REMIX! Same Same But Different

    Its time to take a look back at two assignments and remix/upgrade/revise/improve them. My first choice came quick and easy, as the reigning tongue twister champ, I figured it was time to revisit this assignment and once again prove to the doubters that I am indeed the best there ever will be. To prove this…

    Story Time: Daily Create Edition

    One purpose, one goal, make a decent story that can use multiple of my unrelated Daily Creates to add to it in some way. Let’s see how it goes. There once was an old grumpy man name Mister Sprooge who hated all holidays, especially Christmas. This goes back over 50 years to his childhood when…

    Brainstorm 2: Electic Boogaloo

    After scanning a majority of the content made so far that’s 80’s related, I noticed a lack of content focused around TV during that time. Most things have some ties to music or movies from the 80’s, including my own, which is reasonable given how impactful they were. Whether it is just taking a look…

    The Competition

    This post is for me to take a bit to reflect on one of the radio shows done by another group, a.k.a the competition. I listened to Back to the 80’s Radio Show by the DS106 Ladies. I always like to start with positives when it comes to reflecting and critiquing someone else’s work, so…

    Weekly Summary 8

    This was a rather short week, at least when it comes to the number of assignments to complete. The focus was heavily on working on the group radio show and getting it completed. That said, it was a nice change of pace spending so much time working with the other students. We did a great…

    Radio Show Update

    After figuring out all the logistics last week, recording and finishing up the radio show this week went exceptionally smooth. We all enjoyed our Fall Break for Monday and Tuesday, but made plans to meet up in the HCC on Wednesday. We finalized our ideas for the radio show and started up recording. After recording…

    Weekly Summary 7

    The main focus of this week was very clearly placed on setting up and beginning work for our group radio show. It was a little slow starting, because most of us didn’t know each other, but it ended up going really well and was a lot more fun than I expected. I’m really looking forward…

    Weekly Summary 5

    The theme of audio related assignments led to a recurring theme in completion that was pretty surprising to me, difficulty starting. With almost every assignment this week, the first step was the most difficult/time consuming part. Maybe this style of work doesn’t match my style of creativity, or maybe it is just a coincidence. Either…

    Not just any storm, but a brainstorm. The goal is a reasonable 20-30 minute radio show, so lets spit some ideas. My personal favorite form of audio content is the open ended podcast, so I could easily see myself going through with a conversation podcast that is loosely guided by 80’s pop culture related topics.…

    Weekly Summary Four

    The trend keeps going with this week being my new favorite week yet. Spending time doing visual editing let me play towards my goofy creative side with some really enjoyable visual assignments. Before that though, I began the week by checking out Telling Stories in Photos. This turned out to be more informative than I…
