    Artificial Intelligence

    Ron Burgundy



    Ron Burgundy is the ultimate 1970′s man’s man.  He drinks obsessively, thinks little of women, and constantly shows off his masculinity.  His relatively low level of intelligence, his horrible social skills, and his incredibly inflated sense of ego are all good starting points for a character who needs to …

    Final Project Gameplan


    I had a lot of trouble deciding on a character to use for the final project. It seemed as though each character I chose I could find a a problem with. Eventually I decided on Abraham Lincoln, with a twist, in that he will be living in modern society. There …

    A proposal for how my final should be proposed. Does that make sense? Well hopefully it will by the end of this post!

    Final Project planning


    For my final project I was thinking on doing a remake of a Disney classic movie, I do not think that I should call it a classic movie though because I do not think it would end up like that. For my character I am going to pick Pocahontas because …

    The Princess nodded. “That they are.” Her gave remained looking down at the Prince’s hands, in which he held three large eggs. The …

    One assignment we had to do this week was the Recycle the Media. This assignment did not count towards our six stars of mashup/remix that we need for these two weeks.

    UPDATE APR 18, 2013: The archive lives! Watch the insanity!

    SuperCut it!


    This week I made a ‘supercut it‘ video featuring Agent Ziva from the television show NCIS.  Her character is originally from Israel and English is her second language.  She is constantly trying to use American idioms and butchering them.  I haven’t seen this show in ages but used …

    This was the first assignment I did on moviemaker, and so it’s a little rough.  I chose to do the sports mashup, which involved piecing together clips of great sports plays, but they were supposed to also tell a story.  I picked rugby as my sport, even though I …
