3G Coverage

Last week, I started a radio show with two of my hallmates, Will Anderson and Katie O’Brien. Our show, called 3G Coverage, features popular hip/hop, pop, and country music and can be heard live around the country on Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon on the WSOE website. You can also follow us on Facebook and request songs every week by writing on the 3G coverage Facebook Wall.

Day N Night

For my first Digital Art project we had to take a piece of artwork and re-create it totally from scratch using Adobe Illustrator. For my image, I chose the Kid Cudi Day N Night Album Cover (Shown Below). We were not allowed to use text, which is why none of the text from the original image is carried over. However, we were allowed to make our own versions of the image, so I made some slight modifications and did not attempt to do the face and instead replaced his face with a space mask. This was my first time using Adobe Illustrator, so of course it was quite difficult and didn’t turn out perfect. I am, however, very proud of my work on this image. So, here it is…

Lose Yourself

For our very last project for Digital Media, we created something new to put in our frame. We decided as a class to each choose a song that had special meaning to us and make a visual representation of the lyrics of that song. I chose to do the lyrics of Lose Yourself by Eminem. Not only is Lose Yourself one of my favorite songs, it also has a great moral that you must take advantage of every opportunity you get in your life because it may be you only chance. Anyway, here’s the image I created, using one of the images I created at the beginning of the semester as a background for the image.

I’m N Luv Wit An Apple (REMIX)

Before turning in my final project, I made a few tweaks and cut out one verse. I added a little intro tune, some effects and synced up the voices a little better. So here is I’m N Luv Wit An Apple (Remix)…

I’m N Luv Wit An Apple

For our Final DMC project we had to make a video of our own style choice. I chose to make a music video spoof of the song I’m N Luv Wit A Stripper by T-Pain feat. Mike Jones. I made my song/video about Apple computers and renamed it I’m N Luv Wit An Apple. For this project, I got help from my fellow fellow, Luke LeSourd. I found this project to be a lot of fun although a lot of work. I had a great amount of fun recording the song, filming the music video, and editing the video. The production of this video really made me realize how much I have learned in the past month in Digital Media Convergence.

Possible Research

If I were to consider research in my field, I would like to research the views of movie critics and why their tastes, in most cases, differ from that of the public. I would like to know what critics are looking for in a movie and try to find more common people critics that view films from a common person’s viewpoint. After conducting research, I would like to create hypothetically best movie in the eyes of critics. FilmCritic.com and Rotten Tomatoes are good websites to see what movie critics think of the current films.

Portraits

For our latest DMC project we had to take portrait pictures. For my portraits I decided to do themed portraits for all of my pictures. I found a few friends from around campus and allowed them to choose what they wanted to be represented as. So, without further ado, here are my best portrait photos.
