Blog post 4- Sam Cast

At this point in the class we are working on the locative media project. Something that I find veyr cool and interesting as a concept but I am a little intimidated by what the process of completing it will be. Right now I am in the planning phase for my project. My idea is to […]

The Real Blog 5 Sam Cast

This week we are continuing to work on our online portfolios. I’m happy to say I’ve made lots of progress since I last wrote about this. My website is coming along nicely, I have finished almost all my write ups and just have to do the very last paragraph. I have built a website with […]

Friedburg talks about urban modality and how it works in tandem with cinematic visuality. They talk about how while driving, the windshields acts as a kind of screen to the urban world. Places like LA had their urban environment and highway system designed with that in mind. Just like a windshield a screen has boundaries […]

This made it a lot more challenging than I was expecting, and I had to give up and take a regular selfie a couple of the assigned days. Other than that I generally tried to […]

Blog post #1 Sam Cast

This weeks photo-a-day assignment was supposed to reflect family. This was made very difficult because I had no access to my actual family. However I mostly used shot’s of things that reminded me of my family or of gifts they have sent me since I’ve been here such as: a poster from my house, chocolates, […]

Redaing Response #1 Sam Cast

This week I read a piece by both Scott and Berger. Scott began with discussing the changing landscape of cinema and how it has moved from being an event to becoming a more casual viewing experience. It has evolved from being an event or spectacle in theaters to something watched lying in bed wearing pajamas on […]
