    Capture the Ripley’s Beauty


    For my last assignment I chose to do the assignment Capture the Beauty. I chose to do this assignment for the same reason as the other one, I’m in Tennessee for my grandfathers birthday and I thought doing the videos of the Ripley’s Aquarium would be fun and enjoyable. The …

    Ripley’s Aquarium !


    For my first video assignment of the week I choose to do the Time Lapse Assignment. You were to record 1-2 second videos all day as many as you can and then create a video with all of the clips combined together. I choose this assignment because this week I …

    Hey Listen to This


    The clip I watched was Rocky 3 . I choose this movie clip because I enjoy watching all of the Rocky movies and I felt like it would be a good movie to use in order to go through the three steps of this assignment.

    How To Read A Movie


    I’ve never heard of a Cinema Interrupt, but the way that Roger Ebert describes it in his article “How To Read A Movie” sound like a lot of fun. I think it would also be really useful to have a bunch of different perspectives from a film’s audience. …

    A Triple Take on American Psycho


    Visual Only-

    The opening is simply a shot of the man sitting on a chair, there is little action occurring but the scene is well balanced. Everything seems simplified and clean, from the mans sharp outfit to the empty bottle and unopened cigar on either side of the man. Although …

    Perspective, Perspectives


    Film is a great medium to venture through on the course of education. The greatest learning occurs when we are active and engaged, film has a huge potential to instill this in viewers. Hitting every sense simultaneously, we cannot help but be engulfed in what we are seeing. Visual imagery …

    The Dabbing Robot


    This is my first daily create of the week and I would like to say that I really enjoyed participating in this assignment. When I saw that we could make a robot dance for one of our daily creates this week, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of making the …

    Robo Boogie


    This was a fun daily create. Of course I picked the robot that resembles a cat since I love cats. I got a kick out of changing its arms, head, and hips movement. The movements I chose were completely random. Below is a screenshot of my dancing robot.

    Another one of these


    This week was very tiring. The assignments were killing me! I was very confused at points but I got through it. I did up enjoying what we had to this week because I really enjoy making sounds and having my voice heard. When I started this week, I was not …

    Always learning


    That’s the theme of my week! I’m always learning. I keep on learning that if I don’t manage my time correctly that I will pay the price for that. I also have learned how to use different audio techniques to make my sound special. I think that if I had …

    The story of sounds


    This week we had to make a story by just using sound. For this assignment I used many different things. I downloaded a couple of sounds off freesound.org which included sounds such as rain, a chicken bawking, a futuristic transition. These sounds really helped me create my story. The other …

    Feedback is important


    This week I spent a lot of time providing feedback on how other students in my class performed. I thought it was a great experience as I was able to get a lot out of it.

    Man on the moon


    In the Moon Graffiti post, it was awesome to see the different techniques that were being used. One of these techniques included making a dispatch like tool to sound like a radio the astronauts were using. When I heard this technique, I could visualize the astronauts talking to each other, …

    Technology is something else man


    In Lo Down Episode 9, I really like the intro. The intro music really made me get into it. The speaker has such a great, articulate voice. The intro was great as it showed what a bumper was. Even though I didn’t create a bumper, I think it would be …

I had struggled in the beginning of the week with using the software, and completing my audio assignments, but the …

    ScottLo and Ted Radio Hour


    I found that these recordings were very helpful with creating my audio assignments this week. I picked up some useful techniques from the Ted Radio Hour, such as how to use various sound effects to help draw in listeners, or how music can really help to make the recordings more …

    I’m Learning a lot that’s from sure


    In the first video, I watched Ira Glass talk about how Audio storytelling is different than other forms of storytelling. In the video, he says there are two basic building blocks that can be used at will. The first building block is Anecdote; which is what is the story about …

    Man this was kind of tough. I had to spend a lot of time on this one.  What we had to accomplish for this assignment, was to make a post similar to that of PhaseChase, which is a bot that takes a word and automatically changes a letter. It then …
