Just Dance!

This was just a quick little animation for the sake of animating. I started this as a story boarding project and it was the only part that I really liked so i finished it off.

POWER! :Tales from Writing for Media

Writing for the Media, I believe, could also be called "how to not b.s. people." We are learning to talk to people as if they are real people and not idiots and i know that this is the way it needs to be. Not that I didn't practice some of this before, but i did some times get caught up in this "soft language", because in some cases I do understand. Like my mom for instance, she has a legitimately licensed child care service, but i would necessarily insult her by calling her a "baby-sitter". She likes the term "Provider" which i think i very fare, because the thing you think about when you think about baby-sitter is a snotty teenager who might know c.p.r, and that's if your lucky. And I know im back tracking to last classes topic, but i thought about it a little more over the weekend and had to express my feelings, that may also be because she is my mom and I know how hard she worked to get where she is and i think she deserves more credit than the neighborhood baby sitter.

POWER! :Tales from Writing for Media

The soft language attack of George Carlin is nothing less than inspiring for me to be as blunt with everyone as i can. jk, but it goes to show you just how sucked in we can get by these words. He hits the nail on the head when it can to the soft language. People try to sugar coat everything just so that we don't have to face the ugly truth. I am kinda believer that the comedians are some of the only honest truth tellers in the world. Think about it, you wouldn't want to really hear a comedian who just lies all the time. I mean i understand that there is some sort of exaggeration in what they are saying, but for the most part its stuff that happened to them at one point or another. Or you could listen to the talking heads on the news networks. Take your pick.

Digital Frontiers : Lip Sync

This was a simple lip sync for my Digital Frontiers class. The project was to do a 10 sec lip sync to a sound bite of our choice. I chose a clip from the movie "Dumb and Dumber". I also decided to stay with the simple 2-D hand drawn. And I know the the composting looks really crappy. I'm workin on it

POWER! :Tales from Writing for Media

This past class we talked about the finer point of our persons. By this, i mean what is called Maslow's Hierarchy, which says that there is a recipe for human behavior. Basically, we think about existing (staying alive), then security (finding a shelter and continuous source of food and water), Love, esteem (the acceptance of others), and then at that point we are ready to think about others. This seems to be the most primal of human instinct, but also in the same sense is very true. You wouldn't give others your home if you had nowhere to stay. thinking about this make us all seem so much more well, i want to use the word selfish, but i can't because its not. I think that everyone looks out for themselves first, excluding most parents for their children and some lovers, and then maybe they will be inclined to help. This is a conflicting feeling right now.i mist think on this more......
