Make America Great [Again]- Spider Bae

Quick note: This isn’t an attack on Kanye West, I appreciate and admire him as a human and artist. One of the things I love most about him is the passion and love he puts into his work and what he believes in. He doesn’t conform and I highly respect that. However, he needs to…

No auto save. Gaming in the 90’s

  I was a hard-core gamer once. I had every popular game as a kid and would play well into the morning on weekends (of course) until completion. I’m talking about the hard-core gamer here –  blow into the system and game cartridge gamer. No auto save, you only have two options: game paused or…

[Final Video] Emotional IQ

I had so much fun with this project. It was an informative learning experience and Marina’s feedback during our early stages into completion was critical. Thank you Gabriella and FenFen for your hard work and dedication to our project. Also, a tremendous thank you to the actors who made our video possible. Actors: Amanda Wallace and…

[Midterm idea] A blast from the past [ICM]

We were asked to incorporate ICM work with Pcomp for the midterm assignment. Its been well over a year since ICM but I’m still pretty excited to refresh my mind and revisit some of my old projects from my ICM days… I was obsessed with Kanye West last year for some odd reason; way before…

Make something [NYC Police Sirens]

I also followed the book for this exercise; I seem to retain more information when I read examples directly from the Arduino projects book.  I switch between the resources online and the physical book – this is extremely useful and helpful for me. I used a Pushbutton switch and three LED’s (red, blue, white), 3…

Make something C4/C5

I was able to get through a few labs but I ran into problems with the servo motor control project. I started with the web version and decided to work on the example in the book, which I found easier to comprehend. I followed the project line for line this time around to avoid mistakes…

Loud Flower

Music, I have arrived! I’m excited about this project, although I couldn’t figure out how to import the pitches.h library until I disconnected the Arduino. I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted to play the Super Mario theme song through my 8ohm speaker. Ingredients used: 1 220 resistor, 1 force-sensing resistor, 1 8 ohm…

Rough Cut

This week my group focused on organizing and delegating tasks. We figured out who was really good at a particular thing and assigned responsibilities according to our skills and interest. We sorted the following tasks: Shot list Selecting the music Cuts in Premiere Script writing Scrap voice over Branding & design I researched several royalty…

Go out and shoot!

Today my new group and I were on set recording content for our  fantasy commercial project. Originally “Emotional IQ”’ was centered around a child and his exhausted parent but Jenny suggested using two adults because children generally take longer adjusting on set. I’m glad we agreed because the co actors worked really well together and…

Audio piece reflection/ Storyboard

I had a great experience working with my team creating and building for our Audio piece. We were able to manifest an idea using an entirely different approach, pretty much working backwards. The sound effects used were really helpful in creating the story and building the emotional arch as we connected the pieces of the…
