Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

We are a very ambitious bunch. We meaning: Will McCarry, Billy Bacci, Jimmy McGrath, and myself. Collectively, we have been part of five separate bands over the last four years, not to mention our own personal side-projects. But all that has finally come together. We have finally settled on the name ‘Violent Blue‘. Not only […]

Mom, Moonie and the torn ACL

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

It’s a little late because I had to recover the files that disappeared when my computer broke on Monday, but here is my mother telling us about when she fell from her horse. You can hear my parrot and my father in the background. My microphone is…

Recording, editing, hosting, and syndicating a podcast… for FREE!

Monday, March 15th, 2010

This post is a few days late, but it is here none the less! With such a specific title, there’s not much to explain in this post other than that I did another screencast tutorial. Although a few things have already been shown in class, it is worth going over again. Pretty much what you […]

Rapid prototyping Audio Digital Stories

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

This story is about a trip to Japan I took after I graduated high school in 2007. I realized after I finished these that it would have been nice to combine all of these tools somehow. I like using Google Maps for the locations, but I also enjoyed using the timeline as […]

Possible digital story proposal

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

I’ve honestly been thinking quite a bit about what my digital story should be. I’ve gone through probably six different ideas over the past few days, everything from an idea based on a fictional story I wrote a while back to even videos having to do with certain events in my life. But then I […]

A Film in 6 Frames

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

As the post name states, the assignment is to take one of your favorite movies and display the entire films within a series of six pictures without any words.

YouTube Doubler
