    Over-Dramatic Reading: Price Tag

    by

    You want drama? I know all about it. Would you like to see my resume? I wonder if I still have the spark of the theater in me… The over-dramatic reading assignment gave me a lot of flexibility to read anything, anyway, as long as I made it my own. …

    Daily Create Recap – Week 6

    by

    I love Audacity. If only I could have gotten the AutoTunes plugin to work! I actually had to reinstall Audacity several times as I attempted to install a plugin that would add the AutoTunes sound effect to Audacity. I read blogs, watched tutorials, nothing worked. So due to technical difficulties, …

    A Sound Effects Story

    by

    Music is not the only sound that resonates within us and creates atmosphere. Subtle sounds all around create an environment of storytelling. The sound of rain, of footsteps, of cars driving down the highway… they all create elements to a story.

    WEEKS FOUR AND FIVE DAILY CREATES IN REVIEW: Focus on Photography

    I can be a bit dramatic, I admit. I’m enthusiastic! But our class challenge to shoot a daily create every day for two weeks was MADDENING. Despite how much I loved every photo assignment, I wanted to spend way …

    Hold on to the ones you love…

    by

    Best. Face-smoosh. Ever. I swear, these moments could not be staged. This lovely gesture was on Valentine’s Day, no less, from my 8-week old heartthrob. Just goes to show that no matter how small, everyone can show love every day. Sure, I’m still a romantic at heart (I think… don’t …

    “Name… That… Single!!!”

    by

    Does it sound completely redundant as a human being to say I love music? Doesn’t everyone love something they consider music? Iconic sounds shape who we become and how we see our world. This assignment brought two of my favorite things together: Music and Minimalism. Trying to represent a song …

    There is No Box

    “Wow, I must be really grown up now!”  So sayeth my wise child on her seventh birthday. She holds her head up high as she inspects the table decorated with such grown-up gifts as flowers, balloons, and fancy treats from the bakery.  I can’t help but think about how much …

    Inking an Idea

    by

    Here’s a little story about Web 2.0 and Storytelling. Once upon a time, there was an 80s baby in a room full of millennials. Unlike her peers, when she was growing up, the internet was still a reclusive, mostly government and military project. She watched the world wide web come …
