    I Had to Learn How to Read…Again


    One of Roger Ebert’s most interesting tips on how to read a movie was that there really are no concrete rules to be followed when filmmaking. There are guidelines and generalities, rather. I like this approach to movies because sometimes when things get too technical they can lose their meaning …

    How I Ended Up Here


    Compile your favorite photos from your experiences, trips, hobbies etc and make them into a video. Try to organize them chronologically to tell your story as you work your way through college. Make the video at least two minutes.

    This 4.5 star assignment was on the first page of video …

    Through The Looking Glass

    Reflection: Look, Listen, Analyze

    When I watch a movie I never take into account the audio or the camera work involved. This assignment was a little trickier for me because I would zone out and begin watching the movie instead of doing the assignment. So I decided to keep myself …

    Today’s daily create involved chosing a classinc piece of art and transforming the way people view it by giving it a scenario/caption.  For the artwork I decided to pick American Gothic by Grant Wood.  I used the website provided to download the image. In regards to the …

    Daily Create #12

    Today’s daily create involved customizing your personal map. The place I chose was Scottsdale, Arizona because I was born there. Also because it’s one of my favorite places to visit! I personalized my location by using the website provided. At first, when I was using Map Stack …

    Week 3


    This week was all about telling a story through sound. I found the points made about audio storytelling by Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad quite interesting. I also enjoyed listening to the TED talk and Scott Lo. I especially liked the Moon Graffiti audio story. I had a lot of …

    Down on the Farm


    The goal of this assignment was to record sounds that I hear daily, but may be unfamiliar to others and turn it into an audio story.

    For this assignment, I chose to let everyone hear the sounds I hear everyday out on the farm. The audio clip below will walk …

    Audibly Challenged


    This week was quite the challenge. I had never done any editing on audio or video like that and was woefully unprepared for the difficulty and time it takes to do audio editing. I had editing my sound effect story once and had prepared to upload it but thought I’d …

    Just Keep Swimming

    Weekly Summary #3

    Audio week has been an adventure! At first, I was nervous because I hate recording my voice, but everything turned out alright! My week started off with a little background information. This included Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad’s storytelling advice and techniques. I learned a vast variety …

    To Give Is To Receive

    Comment Feedback

    This week was different than most because we were required to interact more with our other classmates. At first, I was nervous because I’m not one for social interations over the internet. However, once I completed my first couple comments I became more comfortable. I thought that this …

    A Hero’s Quest


    When the town is attacked, when the villagers are terrified, someone has to step up and go face these bandits. Save the town. I’ve always loved the classic tales of evil doers and the heroes that step up and become legends by doing great and heroic deeds. Typical D&D stuff. …

    The greatest speech never given


    Right off the bat, Moon Graffiti forces you into panic mode alongside the engineers at mission control. It begins with a reenactment of the worst case scenario – a “moon disaster.” There is a rapid beeping, signalling critical error, and the static message from the astronaut giving mission control a …

    An Audio Mood


    Audio storytelling is something that I thought I had some knowledge of but, listening to the stories I realized that my experience with audio storytelling was simply stories that were told via audio podcast. There wasn’t really any storytelling to it.

    Listening to Jonathan Mitchell’s podcast Moon Graffiti I realized …

    More than One Logical Fallacy


    The fallacy of tu quoque stood out to me as the grown up, politics version of “I know you are but what am I?” and I just had to make an image for that. I thought, what better to demonstrate that point than a cat and a dog.

    G W Zimmerman Week 3 Audio Story Telling


    This was the week that was!!!!

    In the midst of everything else the wifi on my computer crashed. I’m now hooked up to an ether net connection that is less than optimal. Talk about old school…at least it isn’t a dial-up connection…that would be rich.

    What I learned from Ira …

    Summer Nights and Springsteen


    The purpose of this assignment was to create a mash up of a band’s or artist’s greatest hits, in your opinion.

    I chose to create a mash up of what I consider some of Bruce Springsteen‘s greatest hits. I chose to look at Springsteen’s songs because I had been …

    On The Radio


    The purpose of this assignment was to create a bumper for the ds106 radio station.

    A bumper, as defined on the assignment’s page, is “a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into.”

    For …
