    That’s a Wrap!


    This has been an enjoyable but lengthy class! There were many moving parts, but I definitely think that it was worth all the effort in the end. My final project was fantastic! I have been learning to play the organ for a little less than a year now, and I …

    Bringing some joy to the close of the semester!


    Well, we have made it! What a semester, I think this one takes the cake so far! I can definitely say that I have learned quite a lot from this class! For my final project, I decided to spread some joy and play music from an upcoming audition that I …

    Birb Outside My Window or Week 12 Summary


    Hey there everybody! This was a fun week of assignments. I learned a lot about video editing, and I now have a better idea of what I want to do for my final project!

    My daily creates are posted below! My favorite of which is the one with my cat …

    Remix Dos


    This was a fun remix! I had to find some mascots that I like. Unfortunately, I am not the biggest sports fan, so I just looked up some funny ones instead. The remix criteria wanted me to put a military spin on this one!

    I decided, after finding an angry-looking …

    Remix Uno


    I was a little confused with the remix button on this assignment, but I think it works and is funny. So the assignment I am talking about is this one, and it asked me to create a mix of a store and something I like.

    The remix button …

    You’re Welcome


    I had a lot of fun with this assignment! I looked up some videos on YouTube on how to do “picture in picture” in final cut pro. It was pretty straightforward from there.

    The clips I used are linked here and here. I was looking at everyone’s posts so …

    Let’s Play Some Vidya Games!


    This assignment was relatively straightforward. I was asked to create a mashup of two video game art covers, and I decided to pick two contrasting genres as I intended to make something that is light-hearted into a darker tale.

    For the two games, I chose the new Kirby game: Kirby …

    T-Minus 4, 3, 2, 1


    I had fun this week making some more video assignments. I’m starting to get the hang of the program I am using. For my daily creates this week, I again stuck with the plan of getting those done as early as possible. The two that were my favorites were the …

    Final Cut is handy!


    The process for making this assignment was pretty straightforward. I was asked to find various clips from movies or tv shows and add music to the background. I decided to take clips from some movies I had rewatched recently.

    I first found the clips online and downloaded them. The next …

    Another Organ Piece


    I am just uploading this one here as an extra. I am still trying to prepare for an audition. I still have a ways to go with this piece, but I particularly like the parts where I play eighth notes in my feet. Learning to play the Organ has been …

    I Hope I Don’t Crash.


    So I decided to put my own spin on this assignment, as I wanted to get outside. I have been working on biking more, even though this semester has been challenging, and it always helps me feel better afterward.

    So the idea for the assignment was to film myself …

    After reading Roger Ebert’s article titled “How to read a movie,” I have learned some new ideas about how movies are edited to emphasize specific emotions and add overall tension to a scene. In particular, the part that he discussed that stood out to me the most was …

    What great ideas!


    Looking over the class’s ideas for a final project was fun!

    I like the idea of weaving mystery into the projects. This post was great, and I particularly like their vision “to make a story about what would happen if one of the world’s most evil political figures decided …

    What an Interview!


    I was asked to answer some questions about a fun video assignment for this assignment. I think I am getting the hang of editing videos slowly in Final Cut Pro, but I was initially lost with how to add a slide with text responses.

    I realized, why not just …

    Break time


    I have been looking at some of the other assignments today, and I have another one almost done, but tonight I decided I needed to practice the organ more. I am preparing for an audition, and I wanted to do some recordings. So this is an assignment that I made …

    Slow Motion


    Boy, is this week looking tough! I had a hard time choosing which assignment I wanted to tackle today, but I decided on this one!

    I found an extension for firefox that allowed me to download YouTube videos, which was helpful, and I wish I had seen that earlier …

    Project ideas!


    I want to make some short intro music for a radio story. After doing this last project, I think that I enjoy making audio recordings, which will allow me to learn more about recording with audacity.

    I need to start working on some script for an original story, and I …

    Coroner’s Tale Reflection and The Death of the Painter


    Tonight was a lot of fun! I was very pleased with listening to the final product of both my group’s radio show and another group in class!

    Coroner’s Tale was incredible! They did an excellent job with sound effects, and the atmosphere was over the top! The different voice effects were …

    Hey everyone! What a week, I’m starting to sound like a broken record…

    So, Monday night, Radio7, the group I am a part of, all met up at the HCC to record our parts for this week’s radio show! The final result, I think, turned out well, primarily because of …

    this week


    is the premier of Death Of The Painter!

    I am impressed with the results looking back at this show!

    I hope that everyone in my group is also equally pleased, and I think everyone did a fantastic job with their parts!

    Please enjoy and let me know what you all think!…

    are short!


    Hey, back again!

    I had a great week, and I am glad to be finished with 3 of my course projects, all due the same week. It’s relieving to have that in the past, but I am proud to see the results of my hard work.

    I did my daily …

    I need a break!


    Good morning DS106! I’m glad that midterms are coming to a close. This week our group made a lot of good progress on the radio show. I also made some fun commercials that, while challenging, turned out great and helped ease some of my stress this week.
    I think the …
