Hey there fiends! I now have a real website (not that blogger isn't cool; it's great). So come check it out. There's lots of pictures and videos, a couple of podcasts, writing samples and cool links, including a link to here. You gotta check out the link to Aubert Bros as well. See ya there!

Check out this music video I made. This is footage put to an original song by my friends' band Aubert Bros. The song is called Aubert Bros as well. These guys rock. If you are in the St. Petersburg area, check 'em out ASAP! You can watch this video on YouTube or just click the image. Check out their myspace page too.

For any visitors to this blog, I have another blog, fancypants, that is somewhat on the lighter side. It is for my media convergence class. Check it out.

Hello all. As I informed Dorian on Monday, I will not be in class tonight because I will be at the Dave Matthews Band show. Please do not take this personally. I still want to see everyone's movies (and I will). I will check them out on your blogs and post my comments. I hope everyone enjoys mine. I have really had a great time in this class. I learned a lot and also sat with impatience looking at my computer screen way too long. That's all part of the schtick though. I guess I better get used to it because next summer I am planning on making an hour long documentary. I can only imagine the time I will spend staring at my computer then (something like 6 months!) So, enjoy tonight. I am very excited to see everyone else's flicks. It's been a blast. Good luck to all of you. I guess I'll see some of you this fall. If you watch the movies at the Tavern, have a beer or two for me. If not go have one anyway. I'll be sure to have a couple for all of you at the show. Cheers!

This is my final project. It took many hours of editing and staring at a spinning ball of color. What a relief that it is done. I might go back later and change the music to a soundtrack that I will compose myself. I had to compress it quite a bit to get the file size down and I sacrificed a little quality; but it's not too bad. Hope you like. Let me know with your comments. Good luck to everyone with their movies! Cheers!

I really enjoyed watching clips from everyone's movie projects on Wednesday. I can't wait to see the finished products. It appears that everyone has put a lot of time into these things. It has been a very fast paced class and everyone seems to be in a frenzy to get things done. I think this is good. The time budget we have gives us a little push to git 'r dun! I work best when under pressure (most of the time). I haven't been able to put my all into some of this stuff due to other classes and work, but I feel I'm doing a pretty good job given the circumstances. I think this goes for everyone else as well. I finished my movie Wed night at like 11:30pm. I just need to compress it and upload it to my blog. I hope everyone is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. See you in class.

Just wanted to say a few words about the critiques from the narrative projects. I did get a lot out of reading what everyone thought of my final cut. There were some things I agreed with and some that I did not. Overall, it was good feed back. My overall impression of everyone else's narratives was really good. I thought there were original ideas and personality. The narratives about families were touching. It's nice to see that people have great histories and they are willing to share it with everyone. The other narratives about personal interests and good old fashioned humor were also super. It was all very entertaining and informative. I liked working on the project. It was fun to see how other people put things together. They each have a unique style. It shows the diversity of the class. I'm excited about the final movie. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Until next time...
