Time management has been the hardest aspect due to another project I have been working on the majority of the semester.

Recently I have started planning out my final portfolio for CMDP 1400. The most difficulties I have with these sort of projects is finding time to do them. I’m working on a much larger project for one of my engineering classes that is taking up a lot of time. However, I have come up with […]

Locative Media Project Critique

I reviewed Ryan McCormick’s locative media project. I really liked a lot of what he did with the project. I really enjoy listening to music and isolating myself from the world with music.

Found Footage Blog Post #2

This week I have been working on my found footage film project. I’ll be honest, so far I have not put that much time into the project itself. I have spent a lot of time thinking about the project and making a game plan in my head of how I’m going to go about completing […]

Photo-a-day blog post #1

The past two weeks I have been working on my photo-a-day assignment. I have experienced mixed results of ‘success’ and ‘failure.’ In my experience, I have found I am much better at taking pictures of objects and landscapes rather than people. One could see why the themes of family and college life might prove challenging […]
